3 Ways to Style a Muscle Tank

I found this muscle tank online at Unitiques, a Plato’s closet-esque company where you can browse a multitude of different gently used products. Geared towards college students you can choose to shop with shipping or select the local pickup option. All the products are reasonably priced and you can find anything from Lululemon and Kate Spade to Forever 21 and H&M.

My order arrived quickly and in great condition, with a super cute note from the seller of the item! While a muscle tank may not initially seem like a piece that you can wear all the time, I think it is truly a versatile piece that can fit in many different outfits. Keep reading to learn more on how I styled this graphic muscle tank to fit every occasion.

Ready for the Gym

The clearest, simplest, and coziest way to style a muscle tank is for the gym! Muscle tanks are the perfect way to show off a super cute new sports bra since they typically have oversized cutouts on the side. Not to mention, due to the loose cut of the fabric, a muscle tank is the perfect top to keep you cool for an outdoor workout.

Or, if you are like me, you may just take this cute sporty look to your 8am and call it a day. Regardless of your plans, this look will keep you comfy all day long.

A Casual Day Out and About

For this look I paired my muscle tank with a pair of Vintage High-Rise jeans from American Eagle. I absolutely love their denim and the worn in look of this pair. For me this is the perfect look to go from studying in the library to a date at your favorite coffee shop.

This is perfect for the days you want a put together outfit without really having to try. I think printed muscle tanks with cute sayings are best for this style, but a plain one with a pretty lace detailed bralette would work just as well.

Girls Night Out

This is personally my favorite of the three! First, because going out is always fun, and second, because I am obsessed with these shoes! I absolutely love dressing up t-shirts for going out and other pieces that were not originally intended to fit the look. I chose to pair it with a black bodycon skirt from Topshop to elevate the look for a night out. I added a statement necklace as the finishing touch to polish the outfit for a night out.

Mastering Your Time ft. Jord

As the school year begins, everyone seems focused on time: scheduling, goal setting, and furthering our personal values during this time. Now that it is week 4, those same concepts already begin to slip. Why? What makes it so easy to forget all the plans we had just made? Life happens. A test is coming up. A project deadline is quickly approaching.  The water heater needs to be fixed. You have to go to work. You have to go to class. The days are passing. We settle into our daily requirements and fail to move beyond them.

It is important to recognize that reminders matter when it comes to our personal progress. How do you keep track of your time? How do you stay on track of those goals? How do you focus on the things you value most?  One way I have been staying on top of my time is my watch from Jord. Not only is my watch from Jord a beautiful, detailed piece, individually handcrafted for me, it has a little something special.

My watch has been engraved with a quote special to me, to serve as a reminder of my daily goals. The case back of my watch states, “She believed she could, so she did.” Since a very young age I have struggled with anxiety, and often convince myself of all the things I cannot do. The engraving of my watch serves as a reminder that I can if I work towards my goal. It serves as a reminder of my values of progress and hard work. All in one small piece that I can hold onto for a lifetime.

Having something that serves as a physical reminder of overarching goals has reminded me of the value of my time, and what it can be utilized for. The things I get to do, to push myself towards my weekly, monthly, and yearly goals.  These little bits of time, our daily requirements, all amount to the same time that helps us reach our bigger picture, whatever it may be.

Many items we wear hold little meaning past our surface level reasoning of enjoying the color or style of an item. Jord’s wooden watches are already a conversation starter with their original designs and refined aesthetic, but why not give a greater meaning to the things we wear? Add your goals and motivations into your daily life by engraving an item intended to keep you on track.
