There's a reason why LA talent Shaina Mote has earned top honors from insiders and blogstars alike. The local Young Guns winner is known for her easy silhouettes and sleek, monochromatic basics that practically pair with anything, like this bright white Sutra tank top. It also happens to be eco-friendly and handmade in the U.S., which is why this effortless piece at the top of our investment list.
Crafted from natural and renewable plant-based fibers, this white top reminds us of our '90s spaghetti strap days, but with a minimalist-cool twist. The two hanging strings on the back give this versatile piece a slightly breezy touch—if this is the designer's very bare-bones take on fringe, we're totally into it.
