Amanda Bynes layers two tank tops nicely...
This is better, it's more subtle.

stefanie...i don't think that wearing something underneath a see through garment falls into the same category as this trend...

while it is true that it is technically layered...a bikini under a mesh top is hardly a new trend and doesn't really belong with the looks that high heels posted...imho..

and underwear-(g string or whatever) under pants... is certainly not a trend my dear...most people wear underwear on a daily basis...it's not exactly a fashion statement...

And for those who don't like the pics please post what you do like.
I agree--so many of you say that you like the trend, and I would like to see your takes on it! I bet you guys will come up with some cool pictures. How would you weave this kind of look into your own wardrobe?

Girls in the midwest have been doing this for ages! Ever since the spaghetti-strap tank tops came into fashion (and the slip dresses) I have seen girls wearing a skinny tee or a sleeveless top under a strappy, skimpy tank-top. That way you can still wear your bra, and if you have back-acne (like I do) you don't have to expose it to the world.

I am quite fond of this look myself, because I have some excellent tops that are too skimpy for work, but can be paired up with other stuff to be more modest and more funky at the same time. I can wear a long, but strappy tank top under a cropped, long-sleeved top, thereby covering my stomach and chest, yet showing layers of interesting fabric. Or I can wear a short-sleeved, skinny tee under a sundress that would otherwise be too revealing for work. Then it is more like a pinafore dress and rather Loli-Chan, especially with my big, black boots and my hair in french-braided pig-tails.

It is fun, too, to combine colors you wouldn't otherwise think of, like orange and electric blue, or yellow and purple. Plain color, bright tanks and tees can be a good and cheap way to express your love of color and you can pull it together with outlandish accessories. I have this great rainbow-striped belt that had been my mom's in the 1980s that I use this way, and lots of wild earrings from my junior-high years.

Layering is definitely a great wardrobe extender and is incomparable for versatility.
I don't understand what you say about your bra?

What I meant was that you can wear your bra without the straps showing. With spaghetti strap tank tops, your brastraps show, which I think looks kind of tacky. Some of us can get away without wearing a bra, though we might not want our nipples to show up if the air-conditioning is too cold or something.

Basically, I was sayin, if you want to wear a tank-top, but want to still wear your bra, and not have it show, you can get more use out of your tank-top if you use it as a layer with something else that will cover your shoulders.

Softgrey, I never said wearing a g-string or underwear was a trend!
I was only having a bit of a giggle that Brits was showing, and that it was purposely done.

I never said that any of them were new trends.

Also, why is it any different to be layering mesh as opposed to any other material? It is still considered layering. I was merely trying to show a few different type of ways people layer things...

It was not my intention to be critiqued for things I have not implied.

So why not do it yourself,and do it better? With a little more savvy about the way clothes work and a few great pieces, it should not be difficult to look WAY better than a load of junior-high kids who are trying to approximate their moms' highschool wardrobes.

I don't layer things like tanks and shirts, I just can't seem to pull it off right (I am short and any additional bulk just doesn't look good) though I have seen layers done well. My type of layering usually is a vintage victorian sheer lace blouse over a lace tank. Or an off shouder top with a contrasting color wife beater under. Or maybe that plunging front top with a little lace tank underneath to give the idea of undergarments.
