The tank dress is a versatile and classic piece that many women have in their wardrobe.
I have found the perfect tank dress with a not too high slit on one side and a very simple body-skimming design. When my tuille sleeves arrived later from If Only It Had Sleeves, I knew this would be the perfect marriage.
Tank dresses look great with jean jackets and fun little cardigans. The lack of sleeves means that I always layer in some way. This dressed up version worked for a more formal evening.
I posted earlier here about the lace version of these perfect solutions for the problem of "If only it had sleeves."
Below is the model from the site showing how the sleeves look without the tank dress. Thankfully, they don't add any bulk under your clothes.
The accessories for this look include a fabulous handmade clutch which was a long-ago gift from a wonderful Fifty, not Frumpy follower. (Thank you!) The rings were gifts from Mr. M.
The necklace is by French Kande.
The shoes are old by Gianni Bini via Dillard's.
The sleeves were designed and are made by a company located in the United Kingdom, but they are happy to ship worldwide. You can see all their other products and colors here.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
