Take one white tank top..........

A classic white tank top is a must have piece for your capsule wardrobe. I love this white pocket tank top from Alexander Wang.The material of this tank is a heavenly soft cotton and as it's made in a baggy fitting style it's really comfy on.

The best thing about a classic white tank top is that it really will go with everying and being so versatile, you can easily transfer this from a day-time casual look to a night-time dressy look with a little help with some nice jewellery and teaming the whole look with heels!

I've picked out some individual pieces that I would team my vest with (as pictured above).
Here's what I selected:-

J Brand Houlihan Jeans - cargo jeans have taken over from the Boyfriend and skinny jeans. These jeans have had a cult following amongst many celebs and it's no wonder why as these are gorgeous. They are perfect for wearing on a summers day with your tank top, aviator sunglasses and sandals or by simply adding some amazing costume jewels and heels you are good to go partying in! These jeans are available in tons of different colours so you will be spoiled for choice with these.

Elizabeth and James Blazer - Blazers are a must-have. Perfect for workwear and playwear this will see you out from the office to the cocktail bar. I would through this on over my tank top and cargo jeans for shopping with friends. Adding the 'wow' factor to this classic black blazer sees these heavily embellished shoulder pads, the layers of glam gold beading will be sure to make you stand out from the crowd!

 Marc by Marc Jacobs sandals - the jelly sandal trend has came back fromretirement and it looks like it's here to stay for a little while longer. All I can say is super stylish and comfy, and I just love this moss green shade. These sandals are perfect with little floaty tea dresses, maxi dresses, safari shorts, cargo / skinny jeans and the list could go on........ basically these will look great with everything so they really are worth investing in!

 Les Chiffoniers Suede zip leggings - These truly are the creme-de-la-creme of the leggings world. You may think these look like another pair of plain black leggings but let me tell you they are more than that. These suede leggings are "designed to mould to and enhance your form" so they really are works of art!

L.A.M.B suede wedges - designed by the gorgeous Gwen Stefani herself these wedges are gorgeous. Wedges are taking over from the platforms and with these dusky rose pink wedges you will hot to trott. This soft pink tone will look amazing against the classic black and the current seasons shades of khaki greens and greige (across between grey and beige)!

Gorjana Peacock earrings - To add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit you always need to dress it with some amazing jewels. These earrings are just beautiful and the warm yellow gold shade makes me think of summertime and wearing them with my floaty maxi dresses on the beach.......ahhh!

 Giles and Brother necklace - A classic 3-tiered necklace that will finish off your day or night-time look.

If you are going for bold chunky jewels then it's mainly best to stick to either the earrings or the necklace. Wearing heavy earrings and a chunky necklace can be too much so wear one at a time and save the other for the next time! Just remember the golden rule with oversizes jewels, "less is more"

So, with summer just around the corner, if you haven't already got your classic white tank top then what are you waiting for?
