I used to take for granted the appeal of a tank top. They were an ease, a piece compounded beneath the bias of comfort. It wasn't until recent that my thoughts began to associate the relaxed, slightly sheer fit of tanks/tees with that of sex appeal. The shy breath of dark lingerie, the low cut befitting to any level of jewelry? It's a haven for slights of second glances.
But what makes a tank different from any other top even teetering the line of exposure? When it comes to tanks and tees, there are no laws that set the standard of wear - pencil skirts, shorts, leather, or lace. They force the confidence and personality of the wearer to dictate how they're represented. Alone, they're of universal simplicity. But when dressed, that same quality of simplicity takes the back burner, defusing into the air the captivating qualities of its body.
P.S. Bonus points to anyone who noticed my haircut! I'll be lenient, considering the straightness of its style is a tad misleading, but trust me when I write it'll be easier to recognize when I take pictures of it in all its mussied-up, beachy glory. ;)
