Have an old t-shirt that's begging for a makeover? In just a few minutes, you can transform it into a sexy tank. All you need is a tee and some fabric scissors. And with the muscle tee back in a big way, thanks to the sporty trend on the runways, we couldn't think of a better time to get this look.
Style muse Vanessa Traina teams up with the designers of Proenza Schouler to make a limited-edition tie-dye tank! And check out Jessica Biel's globe-trotting style as she promotes her new movie The A Team, and Fab's exclusive interview with Erin Wasson about her Low Luv jewelry line. Plus, Forever 21's back to cool collection, all in this week's FabFlash!
We're big fans of Proenza Schouler and Vanessa Traina, so you can imagine our excitement when we heard the two joined forces to show off ProenzaSchouler.com's Limited-Edition Tie-Dye Tank. No doubt, Vanessa looks every bit the beach babe in Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's pink tie-dyed confection. Each tank retails at $175 — $100 cheaper than its original tie-dye tank. Still pricey, but it might be worth it to own a piece of Proenza . . .
I thought when it came to good workout gear, I was pretty much in the know; turns out I was wrong. So when LOLË — a Canadian-based company specializing in activewear for women that I had never heard of — contacted me about its new Spring-Summer line, I was curious. After looking at the company's website and getting a sense of its philosophy, I was excited. LOLË is an all-encompassing line of clothing devoted to women who lead active lives, love to be outdoors, love to laugh, and want to look feminine.
When I first received the Silhouette 2 Tank Top ($60), I was pretty apprehensive. Disclaimer: sport tanks with built-in bras usually don't work for my larger-on-top frame. Still, I loved the color (sage green) and the design, so I wanted it to work. Guess what? It totally did! Once I took out the removable soft pads from the inner bra, the tank fit perfectly. Because my girls need extra support I still wore my own bra underneath it, but the built-in bra did not cut me off along the chest like most inner bras do.

Sticky, hot Miami weather wasn't going to stop AngelaChristin from rocking leather pants — well sort of. These hot glazed jeans are the perfect substitute and give her the same leather look without sacrificing an ounce of style — pure genius.
You can always count on C&C California to have the softest, comfiest tees. I consider their Classic Tank to be, well, a classic. To ring in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, C&C has taken that Classic Tank and reincarnated it as the Breast Cancer Classic Tank, $48, complete with a cute little pink ribbon print!.
It's a great way to show your true colors (pink!) and support a great cause, since a portion of the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Plus, you'll be totally comfortable in and with your new purchase — no buyer's remorse here!
When I workout, I'm looking for clothes that are comfortable, well-made, reasonably priced, and flattering. I want clothes that can withstand more than a few washes, and support my active lifestyle (and my curves).
I found a new company that fits the bill - Stonewear Designs. Their tank tops are really unique, like nothing I've ever seen. I love all the criss-crossy straps, and the styles with the higher necks (you don't want your ladies popping out while working out). These tops are perfect for walking, hiking, biking, rock climbing, strength training, Yoga, and Pilates. Many of the styles have support bras attached, so you could even do some jogging.
Another great thing about Stonewear Designs is their goal: to make clothing that helps women feel good about their bodies. I love that, and I love these tops.
I'm always on the lookout for feminine yet supportive tops for my workouts. I don't mind spending a good chunk of change for a yoga top if it will continue to hold its shape and style after many washings. You know you are going to be washing your workout tops frequently, right?
That's why I love prAna tops. For less than $50, they are all made from amazing fabric that wicks away moisture and never pills or stretches out. Plus they have some adorable styles. Check them out:
