Now that the heat has finally broke here in North Carolina, it’s time to start thinking about your fall clothing options. What will you wear to keep you warm and cozy on the upcoming cool days?

Layering is one of the best ways to keep yourself warm without being bulked down with too much. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you have to stick your tank tops in storage.

We just got in these spaghetti strap tank tops from NikiBiki and already they are flying out of the store. They are seamless, soft and super stretchy (one size fits all), perfect for wearing alone or under a top. I know I wore mine all weekend when I lounged around the house in sweatpants.

Worn for decoration (have a hint of the tank top poking out from under your shirt) or for warmth, you really can’t go wrong with throwing on a tank top.

Alternative Apparel – Fashion Forward and Affordable

If you haven’t heard the buzz on the streets about Alternative Apparel, then you are missing out! Their line of fun tees, tanks, dresses and more are very affordable, even for poor college students and teens living on their allowances. But the soft textures are a fan of all moms who need a little bit of on the spot pampering.

This white burnout top from Alternative Apparel is the ideal piece for any wardrobe and this worn/vintagey feel of the shirt will sooth even the roughest of summer sunburns. It looks great alone, or under a nice jacket for fall.

Another one of our newest arrivals from Alternative Apparel is this great Petecia Asymmetrical Burnout Tank (perfect for running errands around town!). From the website: “Women’s regular-fit burnout asymmetrical tank with extended sides and two side pockets near bottom hem. Burnout fabric undergoes an extensive process to reveal years of authentic wearing and a vintage-soft, worn-in feel, so no two items are exactly the same.”

Available in black or purple, you can’t go wrong with it!

We have a wide variety of tanks and tops from Alternative Apparel, so stop by Denim and Lace today to pick up yours!
