One of my recent work outfits this week was inspired by Angie's ensemble: "sweater & contrasting tank." My version (second outfit below) is fairly low contrast, perhaps more tonal in effect. Does it work? I thought my bright coral cami would be interesting to try, but it was in the wash.

Then I was going to go for a similar effect today (third outfit below), but I didn't like any of the contrast options I had (again, I thought maybe the bright coral cami, but I haven't gotten to the laundry yet!). So I ended up with a kind of matching tank under my open-weave shrug.

The first outfit admittedly has nothing to do with open stitch sweaters and contrasting tanks; just catching up on some outfit posts.

The outfits:
1-3 (worn to work): dark ink with tiny white pinstripe stretch cotton slouchy pants (made by me); cream linen angled-hem top with contrast decorative stitching (made by me); tan belt (Trafalgar); mixed neutrals heeled oxfords (Fidji); navy and tan satchel (Dooney & Bourke).

4 (worn to work): same pants as above; gray cami (Shimera); ink open-knit high-low hem sweater (RD Style); metallic peep-toe booties (Paul Green, Tacey).

5-7 (worn to work): black denim angled wrap skirt (made by me); stone long tank, worn ruched up (Emily Blu); silver and gray lace knit shrug (made by me); black sling-back Mary Janes (Think! Aida); black satchel (Elliott Lucca, Olvera).

Thanks for looking! I always appreciate your comments and suggestions.
