Style Advice of the Week

Sometimes all you need is a little sparkle to liven up your look, especially as the winter wears on. Thankfully, it’s been warming up in The District and spring is almost here! That means it’s time to bring out your favorite tank tops, dresses and skirts again. With just a light jacket or airy cardigan, you’re good to go. This Fashionista makes (almost) all black look appropriate for spring with a sparkly ombre tank. With all of the gorgeous beading, she doesn’t even need a necklace.

A beaded tank is a surprisingly versatile piece. It can easily take you from day to night and from warmer to cooler weather. With a leather jacket, you can wear a tank in the chillier winter months, but on it’s own, the embellished tank is perfect for spring. For a night out, swap the black jeans for a black bodycon skirt and trade the booties for heels. The beading and ombre effect of the tank top take center stage when paired with black jeans and accessories. This look has a cool, downtown vibe due to the dark color palette and edgy accessories.

This Fashionista paired her tank with black skinny jeans, black booties and a silver cross bracelet for a fashion-forward and class-appropriate look. The black color palette looks sleek and streamlined. All-black is eternally chic and it also makes getting dressed much easier. You don’t have to worry about different colors going together. Instead, you can choose to put the focus on some embellishment (like this Fashionista did here) or statement jewelry. You could also add a pair of bright shoes or a vivid bag for a pop of color.

Highlight a special piece in your closet, like this beaded tank, and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Whether you’re off to class or a night out, a little embellishment goes a long way. It’s just that extra something you need to brighten your day.
