What is a Trapeze Tunic and why it belongs in your travel capsule wardrobe. Ditto Sympatico’s Tank Top.
Our newest Travel Tale winner has an appreciation for simple elegance in both industrial design and the way she dresses. Charlotte Clement’s account of her travels and the role her Tank Top and Trapeze Tunic play in her travel capsule wardrobe earned her a Sympatico gift certificate for $100. Here’s what she has to say:
Charlotte gets a lot of wear from her Tank Top.
I love your tank tops and tunics. Wherever I travel to, they are always with me! I have multiples in various colors because I wear them so much. I live in Portland, OR. This summer I decided to enroll in an Industrial Design "boot-camp" through Parsons in NYC. They became a wardrobe staple particularly because of their simple elegance, honorable material, and ability to match with just about anything. After my program ended, I traveled to Rhode Island to visit family and friends. These tops are perfect when dressed up for a nice dinner or paired with a bathing suit for a day on the beach. The attached photos were taken during a chilly weekend in southern Rhode Island: one at the Goddard Park farmers market and the other in historical Wickford village.
Her Trapeze Tunic serves as an under layer on a cool day at the Farmers Market.
