Nomad Styles: The Tank Top

I know not everyone will love our designs as much as we do. That's inevitable. Style is such a personal matter, and we respect that. We also know not everyone will be available to afford our designs. That is also inevitable. We are a very small business, buying fabric in very small quantities (which drives up the price), and paying people what they deserve to be paid while hand-making everything in the United States. We will continue to work at making our price points more accessible and diversifying our offerings, but what we have now is what was possible for our launch. For these reasons, the addition of The Tank Top to our collection was really important to me.

First, it is a simple but striking sleeveless high-low shape that is easy to layer but is sophisticated enough to wear on its own. The silk charmeuse and skimming silhouette make it the perfect topper for high-waisted skirts, your favorite pair of distressed jeans, or high-rise straight-leg trousers. When it's time to layer, wear it under any of your jackets and blazers, or even under a sweater with the tail peeking out! While it mixes and matches effortlessly with other pieces from our collection, I wanted at least one piece I knew absolutely everyone would want, wear, and love.

The price point is still high but it is the entry price point for our collection. Made of high quality silk charmeuse, the design was very specific. First, we opted to create the tank inside out, showcasing the matte side of the fabric, because I don't believe in dressing women in fabrics that have sheen. Sheen inevitably catches the light in places to which we'd usually rather not draw attention. The tank's carefully cut seams hit right at the most flattering part of the shoulder and the armholes are just a touch wider and lower than the average armhole for comfort. The high-low hemline accommodates wider hips without adding bulk.

In short, whether you love our overall aesthetic or not, The Tank Top is a smart choice for everyone that can be worn in a million different ways. And if the price point is a stretch for you, we get it. Know, however, that it will become a wardrobe workhorse driving down the cost-per-wear and that you will not find a higher quality, more thoughtfully designed piece.
