nosmokewithoutpryor asked: Alright my dear.. I've got one for you! I have about a thousand flowy tops, but I'm on the hunt for some new "fitted" basic tanks. Not tight (no one needs that in their 30's), but fitted - so think Old Navy Ribbed Tanks, or H&M or Target camis.. but something a bit classier that maybe has a more interesting neckline, or more versatile cut, that I could dress up or down and wear with a maxi skirt or jean shorts. Any ideas? xo
Hi there friend! :)
Another favorite (I love the length of these) is J.Crew’s Perfect-Fit tank. (See more colors here.) They’re just $22.50 each and you can take 25% off with code SHOPTIME right now. The straps are thin—they look more dressy than a basic ribbed tank. I love the slightly scooped back too. J.Crew Factory’s dupe is the Slim Fit Tank ($14.50).
I’m loving the looks of Gap’s Supersoft tank ($18.50 each, 3 colors). It’s simple but pretty.
I think front racer tanks can be really flattering. This ribbed version from F21 is just $8.90! (This might look awesome with a maxi skirt.) David Lerner’s curved hem tank is pricey at $66 and might be a little less fitted than you want, but I think it would be perfect with shorts.
Revolve Clothing tends to stock more flowy tanks, but if you can get to the basics stuff, there are some great options. James Perse’s Daily Racer Tank (about $30-$45) is available in tons of colors and looks like the ideal basic tank top. I like the higher neck on Bobi’s modal rib tank ($42).
Another option is Everlane’s Ryan tank—just get a size smaller than you normally would. It’s $20.
I love Emerson Fry’s fall/winter collections each year…
…but the only problem is that they are crazy expensy.

emmafolds asked: Hi Jaclyn! I've got a friend's 30th birthday party coming up next month, and I want something with sparkle! I tend to wear fit and flare/50s silhouettes, but add sequins to those and it looks full-on prom! Could you help me find something, knee length or longer, that will flatter my pear shape and also be slightly OTT glam?
Yes! The first one I found is this French Connection dress, marked down to just $70 (from $328!!!). Lots of sizes are still available. It still nips in at the waist and has some volume through the skirt without being a true fit-and-flare. SO pretty.
Another option is this super-hot black sequined Vince Camuto on sale from Amazon for $40! I like the longer sleeves and it will still give you a defined waistline. I’m not sure what size you are and I know a sheath dress probably isn’t a style you’re interested in, but I had to include this David Meister sequined dress because it’s marked down to $142 (from $408) in sizes 4 and 6. This Mango dress might be a little shorter than you want, but because it has such a defined waist, you may like it! It’s on sale for $70 (from $120).
I’m not sure how you feel about the silhouette of this TFNC dress from ASOS ($87), but the faux top + skirt is fun and I love the bright silver sequins.
If you want to go really over the top, this Jovonna maxi dress from ASOS ($73, sizes 4 and 6 available) is amazing. You could also do this sequin and jersey long dress from Jessica Simpson on 6PM for $98 (from $168). You could do FULL SEQUIN GLAM with this Badgley Mischka from RTR ($80). (Or do the shorter version for $40).
RTR also has this (pretty amazing) Kate Spade fit and flare for $40. I feel like you would feel comfortable in it, and depending on how you style it, it wouldn’t look prom-ish at all. If you want something less voluminous, this pewter Milly dress ($30) has a great nipped-in waist.
