The juxtaposition of something casual with a much put-together element has always been a running style theme that underlies contemporary fashion seen among the young and trendy. For some fashion tips on how to get a casual chic vibe going on with the simplest most laid back of tanks, the muscle tee, do read on!
With the guide of stylish lookbookers who’ve nailed down the casual chic look in humble muscle tees to a tee, I hope you’ll find that even the most casual, slouchiest tee in your wardrobe can be styled up to appear dressier.
Work with the opposing elements in your wardrobe and you’ll see.
Partner your slouchy muscle tank top with a structured skirt rendered in charming details like pleats, drapes or ruffles.
If your muscle tank has wide arm holes, wear a printed bandeau or a ladylike bustier underneath for that on trend peek-a-boo effect.
Don’t be afraid to jazz it up by pairing any low-key muscle tank with shorts/pants that carry structure and clean lines.
Dainty heels and jewelry can be used to incorporate a surprising touch of feminine.
In a nutshell: Just simply think of it as the unlikely pairing of the classic rebel with an anal-retentive elitist snob, and you’re good to go!
