New Top Doesn't Look Right, What Do You Think?

I saw a cute, very summery, top and purchased it.  It is a very thin see through material, but I thought it would be nice for work.  It would just dress up an outfit and be very cool.  After I got it home and tried it on, it just looked very skimpy on me.
 I felt it needed something even though I liked it.  I decided to add some binding around the edges.  I thought a blue trim to match would be pretty but after I started to sew it, I didn't care for it.  The top has a black background and it just didn't look right.
                                                                                    
So then I thought maybe I could add black on top of the blue.  Its fun to be the designer, you can do anything that you want!
Well, I didn't like that either.  As you can see the black was starting to pucker.  I decided to take off the black and blue and start over with just the black. 
 This is how I finished it off and I really like it.  The top looks a little more finished now!  What is your opinion???  Blue, Black or Blue and Black?
