This lacy blouse is perfect on those hot end-of-summer days. With leafy lace running up the center of the front and branching lace directionally up the back, this tank manages to blend sporty and frilly. Using the body shaping to move the lace columns on the back, the Alyssa tank flatters the feminine figure without being extreme. The high neck-line creates a summertime feel that is at once casual and formal depending on what it’s paired with.
