The Must-Have of Layering

This is a tank top. But not all tank tops are equal, and this is not your average tank top. The Raw Edge Silk Tank by Veronica Beard is the must-have layering basic you’ve always wanted but never been able to find.

A few weeks after opening The Hive, Elizabeth asked me what I felt we were missing. We had beautifully tailored jackets and yummy, cozy cardigans. But what we were missing was the piece to layer under those jackets and cardigans. We were missing the perfect layering tank. It turns out such a piece is not so easy to find. The tank must be sufficiently beautiful and flattering on its own that its wearer feels comfortable taking her top layer off if need be. It must be easily worn tucked in or out, and should fall just about an inch and a half below the hemline of a traditional suit jacket.

After lots of looking and coming up empty-handed, we finally discovered this raw edge silk tank by one of our favorite and most popular designers. We should have known the Veronicas would have what we needed! Since then we’ve ordered it in cream, black, navy, a tomato-red color and we have more coming in.

If you feel there’s a tank-sized hole in your closet the way we felt existed in our store, stop by The Hive and try on the Raw Edge Silk Tank in the color of your choice. Mention this post and get 20 percent off when you buy one (including special orders) through the end of March. Then let us know how you wear it — we love to see our customers in their Hive purchases!
