For the past six months or so, I've been on a kick with super sheer fabrics. I've been totally enjoying showing off my favorite black bra through blouses that are really completely see-through yet also fashion-forward & on-trend, elegant and even subtle. So when you combine that look with the not-going-anywhere stripes trend, I'm smitten.
Living in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood for the past 10 years, I was around to see Israeli-born designer Nili Lotan's boutique pop up and become wildly popular. She has now collaborated with the folks over at J. Crew to create this amazing piece. In the sheerest navy blue silk chiffon, this top is so effortlessly cool, I'm not sure I'm cool enough to pull it off! It's languid, perfectly draped silhouette works with skinny and flared bottoms equally well (just make sure whatever jeans or pants you decide on, they are fitted at least through the hip to give you somewhat of a defined shape). Be bold and wear your very best solid black or navy bra underneath, or be a bit more conservative and layer a fitted camisole underneath (black, navy or white all work). Either way, this is such an amazing combination of weekend-slouchy and Parisian-chic that you can't go wrong.
Yup, simply spectacular.
