Style Save: Wear a Button-Up Tank as a Vest

Give your drapey tops new life as a layering pieces

Even though summer's officially coming to a close (sad!), there's no need to throw all your flowy tanks in the closet until the weather starts to warm up again. In fact, we're planning on using every flouncy button-up tank we've got as an essential layering piece for fall.

You can, of course, leave the top buttoned and wear it under a longish blazer, but we really like the idea of completely unbuttoning it and letting it hang open like a light vest. We'd recommend using a style that has a racerback like this AE Sweet Ruffle Tank (originally $24.50, now on sale for $19.95, at American Eagle Outfitters) so you'll get the same support in the back area as you would from a structured vest but with a much more relaxed vibe. You'll look so laid-back-chic!
