Have you ever tried on a piece of clothing and thought, “Oh my goodness, this is perfect” and fallen in love immediately? If you’re like me, that’s happened to you way more times than you can count. My latest “Oh my goodness” piece is the Black Surplice Back Tie Tank Top from Filly Flair. Priced at less than $35, this super flattering blouse has some of my favorite elements: v-neck, draped front (because mom gut), flowy material, and it’s transitional!
Since it’s summer, I paired the top with some white flare jeans and wedges but in the fall (or if I still worked in the corporate world) I’d style it with darker jeans, booties, and a blazer. On the Filly Flair website, the top is styled with some super cute denim shorts; I love pieces that can be dressed up or down, don’t you?
Let’s talk about the straps on this top for a moment. You can tie them however you want! I chose to cross them in the back and tie them at the bottom but the length of them allows you to get creative. I love the gold metal detail at the bottom of the straps. Plus, since they’re 100 percent adjustable, you can make the back (or front) hang as low or as high as you want. Love that.
For some extra detail, I threw on a fedora, which is something I pretty much never wear but I’m trying to be more confident in hats. What do you think? Does it work for me?
To sum up my review, I’m pretty obsessed with my black surplice back tie tank top from Filly Flair and will likely wear it for a long, long time (assuming my husband doesn’t accidentally burn it with the iron like he did with my last favorite black top; he’s staying away from this one). By the way, I decided to go with a size Medium in this style and I’m so glad I did.
Side Note: If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories, you know this Lollipop Multi Colored Block Tank Top is seriously my new favorite casual, everyday piece (I got a small and it has plenty of room) and I love these Calvin Destructed Medium Wash Distressed Jeans! I had to size up but they’re super cute!
