Padded shoulder tank tops are so trendy at the moment and I’m loving the accentuated strong shoulder look.

I tried on some of these tank tops but the shoulder padding was so big and bold on me that it looked comical.

Then I saw this lovely white tank top with pleated shoulder detailing which still accentuated my shoulders without being too much.

I decided that this pleated shoulder white tank top from Zara makes a great wardrobe essential. I got it in size XS (see FAQ for my measurements for reference).

This shade of white is the perfect balance of not too blue and not too cream for my skin tone.

The silky material of this white tank top is also the perfect weight of not too heavy and not too light, allowing it to hang delicately while keeping structure.

As I already stated before in the little white dress post, white is so easy to wear that it literally goes with everything.

The white tank top itself is dressy in nature as it’s made of a silky smooth material that looks more expensive than your typical casual fabrics.

However, the tank style cut makes it a little casual too so that this white tank top can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Confession: These sweatpants below are actually from the men’s section.

Don’t be afraid to try layering your basics. You might be surprised by the outcome (hopefully in a good way).

Note that I purposely got these trousers below shortened to reveal the ankle strap of the glitter block heel sandals from Bared Footwear.

Dressing in all white is a fail-proof way to elevate your outfit and look expensive. Bonus tip: Pair with a red lip to further elevate the look.

Another classic and fail-proof look is to go monochrome with grey.

Not sure if you’ve caught on yet – I only wear high waisted bottoms. This white tank top has no shaping through the waist so high waisted bottoms will cinch in to give a nice feminine silhouette.
