Dress Up & Dress Down

Spring and summer are always my favorite seasons. Warm breeze, the scent of flowers and fresh-cut grass. One of the best parts for these seasons is a new change in our closet. Colors become more vibrant and fabrics get lighter. Now might be the perfect time to re-organize your wardrobe and to plan for fresh spring/summer OOTDs. Let’s not forget to have those items that spark joy for you and for your closet.

While I was swapping winter sweaters with short sleeves in my closet drawer, I found this one particular piece that will definitely spark joy for me this season! So let me share what this item is, and why it makes such a good one.


Soho Pinstripe TankTop is one of the J.MIKA’s latest additions. It’s made with breathable silky fabric with lace neckline trims and thin adjustable straps. Here is how I would stylize this trendy piece to create different looks: from casuals to semi-formal occasions. It is such a fun piece that I can easily play dress-ups or dress-down, depending on which bottom piece and accessories I pair this top with.

1. With a pair of blue jeans

Everyone has that comfortable pair of jeans that you always wear. Here I matched white Soho Pinstripe Tank Top with my favorite distressed pair and snake print platform sandals. Easy, simple, and cute. Here, I would’ve added one or more statement bracelets to stylize this look even further.

You can also tuck in the front part of the top into jeans. Honestly, I loved both tucked-in and untucked looks. It just depends on personal preferences or moods!

If you match semi-dressy top like this with little darker pair of jeans with heels, you could turn this into something more dressy-casual and event-friendly.

 2. With dressy mini black skirts & jacket

I switched my top to the same Soho Tank Top, but in black color. This time, I paired this top with a black ruffle mini skirt with a navy jacket. Here’s the look with jacket’s slightly hung on my shoulder.

I love the way it becomes more event-friendly and chic just by switching around and with different pairings. You could definitely wear this outfit to dinner events like a friend’s birthday celebration, or wine bar date with your special someone. Again, you could pair with any dressy bottom items you already have, like a long pencil skirt with heels, wider dressy culottes with pumps, or even with basic black/grey dress pants with heels.

 3. With any black pants really


I think the easiest way to wear this type of tops would be with any pair of black pants, regardless of materials, widths, or lengths. White and black are both safe yet classy colors. So It will also be effortless to transform your looks from casual chic to a late-night celebration!

Also, check out J.MIKA’s Sahara Print Tank Tops in two different colors! They could also be good alternatives if you prefer animal prints over pinstripes!
