Style Advice of the Week

The mere mention of summer is enough to send girls and guys alike on frenzy toward the gym: the only thing running through their minds is getting in shape for “bikini season.” Here at the California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, despite the fact that calendars indicate that fall has arrived, we will be experiencing the sun’s overpowering rays way into October. So while students who are experiencing colder climates have fully embraced fall by indulging in pumpkin-infused autumnal treats and bundling up in chunky knits, at Cal Poly we are still feeling the pressure to stay fit so we can bare all in this white-hot heat.

Today's Fashionista beats the heat in her chic muscle tank paired harmoniously with a graphic printed skirt, lace-up boots and Lana del Rey reminiscent nails. Although muscle tanks are typically reserved for hulky men fresh out of the gym, this season these tops have provided the perfect way to add edge to an outfit. Muscle tanks feature a variety of designs, from the names of storied bands to exotic designs.

If you are one to flock to concert venues, look no further than this muscle tank sold at Forever 21, which features a screen print of The Doors lead singer. If you are one for more subtle details, try this stud-embellished tank. Enticed by more quirky elements in apparel? Try out this fun French-inspired muscle tank sold at PacSun. Muscle tanks are the perfect way to keep cool during warm weather seasons and are just as easily transitioned into fall. If your campus still feels like the middle of July, try wearing a muscle tank paired with distressed cut-offs and sporty footwear for an androgynous look. If the autumn breezes have arrived, pair a muscle tank with dark skinny jeans, a blazer and chic flats or oxfords for a sophisticated look that is perfect for classes.

Muscle tanks are an easy addition to any Fashionista’s wardrobe because they provide versatility in every season. Whatever the temperature at your campus, include this tank in your outfit in a way that displays your individual style.
