I really enjoyed my beautiful St. Roche knits during the fall, winter and even early spring so I’m excited to add a summer item to my closet! In today’s post I’m styling an ethically made tank top from St. Roche. I’m sharing why it’s the perfect knit for hot summer months!

St. Roche Marilyn Tank Review
My Measurements: 34-29-39, 130lbs, 30D, 5’8″
I think a knit tank is a wardrobe essential for summer. I love that it provides some texture to an outfit while still being breezy due to the open knit. This 100% organic cotton St. Roche Marilyn Tank features mixed crochet stitches and hand-crocheted bobbles to give this tank lots of interesting details! The crochet pattern also makes this tank semi-sheer (you can see my black bra showing through) but I like that! I believe the models on the website are wearing nipple pasties, so that’s an option as well. I would probably opt for a nude sticky bra or strapless bandeau though.
I’m wearing a size small which is my usual size. All of my sweaters from St. Roche are size small as well. This tank is more fitted than the sweaters though so if you are in between sizes I think you could take your larger size.
How to Style a Knit Tank Top
I really like this top and think it’s really versatile for summer. I love how it looks with a voluminous midi skirt – like the St. Roche Selma skirt. I just ordered a similar skirt from Doen that I’m planning on wearing with this top! I also love how this tank looks with a pair of pants or shorts. The St. Roche Cordell Pants are a great option. I actually tried on the Cordell pants but unfortunately, I got a size too small and had to return them. I’m usually a size 6 in other brands but I should have followed the size chart and gone with a size8.
I’ve actually put on a bit of weight in my midsection so none of my current skirts or cropped wide leg trousers are fitting me right now…haha. So I paired the tank with a pair of trendy, wide leg denim from Citizens of Humanity. I thought my black HATTIE Fisherman sandals from Freda Salvador were a great match for the tank. And in order to keep this outfit from looking too matchy-matchy I added this mini straw bag with brown straps. Don’t be afraid to mix your blacks and browns or golds and silvers!
