With a little feel of the early 1960s, this draped boatneck tank is simple yet striking. It can easily be dressed up or down. Wear it with skinny jeans and ballet flats, and you’re ready to dance in your living room for a room full of dinner guests.

The subtle shimmer of the yarn imparts some dressiness to the top, while the simple silhouette allows the tank to be casual.

The armholes feature a chain-garter selvedge, and the waist and neck edges use a knitted hem to keep the edges flat.
