Honestly, they're cute but what a hassle to take care of (wouldn't they get ruined in the washer? I can't dry clean al my clothes!) A great statement necklace on top of a basic tank would work just as wel in my book!

I love these! I bought one a few weeks ago. It really isn't a hassle to wash. The necklace isn't attached, it just slips through the hoops. I have worn them both alone, so it's a two in one!

I like them, and would wear one. But I would probably buy an inexpensive one from Forever 21 or something because I probably wouldn't wear it many times.

I love the look of these, but I've owned a few and I keep having the same problem: The front is too heavy, due to the beading, embroidery, etc. I either have to secure the tank to the back of my bra (meaning weird contortionist-type moves and safety pins) or I have to separate the bib necklace from the shirt, which depending on the manner it is attached can be tricky. It's too much work for what, in my opinion isn't that nice of a shirt. I'd say skip it and spend your money on a nicer necklace and a better tank.

Bib Necklace
We have many bib necklace that are not attached to the tops..Take the necklace off the top, it doesn't need to be there...Keep it plain and simple or glam it up !

American Eagle has a lot of beaded stuff going on lately. I was just in there yesterday, and I think I saw some tanks/tee with beading similar to this. I personally love the look and would do it in a second!

Not so much... maybe the first one but they seem a little too fad-ish for me...

I like #1 but not really any of the others. Maybe because it looks more like a necklace than the others do.

I just bought a bib tank on sale at The Limited for $14.99 and it's FABULOUS! I love simple pieces with unexpected details. It's black on black though, which I recommend. It makes it much more workable.
