Black Surplice Back Tie Tank Top from Filly Flair

Black Surplice Back Tie Tank Top from Filly Flair

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!

      Hahahaha! Thanks, girlfriend!! You only think that because I strategically only wear clothes that hide it. 😉😘

    Such a stunner!! Black and white is, probably, my favorite color combo. It’s so classic and clean.

    It’s so simple and chic. I love placing black tops w/white bottoms because people usually do the opposite!

    I love that the strings are long which allows you to tie it anyway you want. I also love that the shirt doesn’t hug your body and its flows. I would definitely pair it with a blazer in the fall as well.

    Cute outfit! I also really enjoy your little “about me” text. So cute with the “I work some of the time, stay home some of the time, and mom all of the time.”

    As a mom who was lucky enough to escape the mom gut the first time around and stayed pretty fit and healthy during my second pregnancy, it was really hard when I developed diastasis recti. I know that finding tops that are flattering (especially in the summer months) can be difficult, especially when I am not used to having somewhat of a pooch. This top is amazing and it looks great on you. It is one you can have so much fun dressing up or dressing down. It is always a a huge mood boost when you find something you look good in, enjoy it!
