Tangente Repurposes Vintage Scarves into Dazzling Tops

Still think a scarf's place is fastened around your neck, or looped winsomely through your hair? Tangente refuses to be hemmed in, so to speak, by such archaic codes of fashion. The Ottawa, Ontario-based designer takes oversize vintage scarves and stitches them into breezy spaghetti-strap tunics and sexy halter tops for skin-baring fun in the sun.

Options for lovers of oblong pieces of fabric abound, at prices ranging from $30 to $55. Choose from one-of-a-kind designs like trippy concentric circles, an illustrated souvenir map of gay Paree, or a mod orange-and-white checkerboard dancing against a backdrop of brilliant blue. Whether you decide to wear your tank loose or coquettishly cinched at the waist with a belt, the result should be nothing short of traffic-stopping.

In other words, it's hip to be square.
