‘Tanks’ a lot:

With the dog days of summer upon us, as we head into the sultry month of August, most of us are relying on our cool, comfortable, cotton t’s and tanks to literally get us through the day- and night.

Now, Catherine Malandrino has taken this reliable staple one step further. She has combined the idea of trompe l’oeil decoration (very Elsa Schiaparelli, no?) with the hotter than hot trend of bejeweling and decorating EVERYTHING, resulting in a small and irresistible group of jeweled tank tops.

Priced from $195 to $345 retail, there is a Necklace Tank, a Knit Jeweled Tank, and a Byzantine Tank, which are currently available at the Catherine Malandrino Boutiques in New York City, East Hampton, and Los Angeles. In October, they will be available nationwide at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifthe Avenue, and Intermix.

What I love most about these whimsical and unique tops, is how versatile and ‘look changing’ they are, enabling you to easily go from day to night, and everything in between. You can wear them with jeans, a circle or pencil skirt, OR a ballskirt.

Tanks, Catherine!
