Hear me out: You know that old mullet adage, “business in the front, party in the back”? That’s what I think of when it comes to high-neck tank tops. The best high-neck tank tops allow you to revel in the pleasure of both revealing and concealing, thanks to their shoulder-exposing sleeves and chest-concealing necklines. And just like their more popular scoop-neck, V-neck, and crewneck cousins, high-neck tank tops are wildly versatile — they’re the perfect layering piece, but thanks to their more dramatic necklines, they look intentional (and chic) when worn on their own.

High-neck tank tops can go as low as the collarbone, or all the way up to the chin. The overall silhouette can vary, too: From racerbacks to halters to on-trend cut-out tops with a built-in choker, you’ll find all manner of styles on the list ahead. Details like the material and cut can also turn that dial closer to business or pleasure — the fabric can be a versatile cotton, a stretchy spandex, or a delicate silk, making these options appropriate for every situation, from working out to going out.

Scroll on to shop 15 of the best high-neck tank tops worth adding to your rotation of warm-weather basics.

A Racerback Tank You’ll Want In Every Color

This racerback tank by The Drop is the sort of essential piece you’ll keep in steady rotation. Minimalist and versatile, the sporty racerback straps create a just-above-the-collarbone neckline. The ribbed modal and spandex fabric is super smooth, and the hip-length hemline and fitted silhouette are ready to be tucked into literally any pants, shorts, or skirts in your closet. Denim shorts? Cute. Trousers? Chic. Paired with a flowing silk skirt and high, strappy sandals? Perfect party outfit. I love the fiery red shade pictured, but the five other colors on offer (like camel, cobalt, and black) are equally foolproof.

This Basic Cropped Tank With Lots Of Stretch

This cute racerback tank by Free People is full of fun variations on the classic white cami. For one, it’s made with 8% spandex, so you’ll love the comforting hug offered by all that stretch; and the high neckline contrasts nicely with the cropped hemline (hence why it’s called a “brami”). This is just the thing to pair with some high-waisted pants or a pair of distressed jeans, as shown on the model; when the weather cools down, it’s the perfect shell underneath chunky sweaters.

The Essential Black Tank That Belongs In Every Closet

Tucked into a skirt or trousers, it’s instantly elegant and understated. The rayon fabric is blended with 5% spandex for some comfy stretch. If you’re feeling more colorful, there are 18 more wearable options to choose from, like mauve, camel, and olive green.

A Gorgeous Silk Tank With A Dramatic Open Back

This halter-neck tank is made of 100% silk charmeuse, which will feel so luxurious wherever you wear it. The open back would be beautiful worn with a billowy skirt and platform sandals for cocktails, and the high, slightly slouched neck is equal parts dramatic and elegant. And that buttery champagne color looks gorgeous on every skin tone.

5

This Halter-Style Top With A Criss-Cross Neckline

If you love pieces with some eye-catching details, you’ll love this surprisingly affordable halter top. The straps cross at both the neckline and the back to give it a touch of elegant, understated drama. Made from a mix of polyester and spandex, this is the perfect going-out top that adds instant edge to any bottoms you pair it with. You’ll wear the black shade constantly, but the many pastels on offer are a sweet choice for spring and summer.

The $20 Tank With Over 7,000 5-Star Amazon Ratings

It’s not hard to see why this simple, high-neck tank by Joe’s USA has over 7,000 perfect Amazon ratings. For one, it fits like a dream: Not too tight, not too loose, and with a gently curved, hip-length hem, this is the sort of tank that can take you to brunch or the gym; you can even tuck it into a flowing skirt and pair it with sandals for a party. The halter top and cut-ins at the shoulders offer a subtle spin on an otherwise basic (in the best way) tank. At just under $20, why not stock up on more than one?

This Simple Black Tank With A Chic Square Neckline

The pretty lace straps of this high-neck tank would look so chic worn with a pair of tailored trousers and loafers. That elegant square neckline highlights your collarbone, especially if you wear it with a dainty choker, and the hip-length hemline can be worn both tucked in or loose. Last but not least, some peek-a-boo lace detailing at the back offers the most beautiful surprise (though you can also spin it around to show off the lace in the front).

An Elegant Turtleneck Made Of A Cozy, Sweater-Like Material

The ribbed knit material of this mock-neck tank top is sturdy enough to read as a sweater, but it has 3% elastane, so it will keep its shape. And that thicker material means it’s great for transitional weather or chilly summer nights. Plus, you can easily dress this up or down; it would look incredible with a pair of tall boots and a ’60s-inspired mini skirt, but plays just as nicely with some slouchy denim and slides. Other than crisp white, this is also available in black and hot pink.

  • Available sizes: XX-Small — 5X

You obviously can’t go wrong with black, though you have 17 more on-trend colors and prints to choose from, too — think neon green, brown (aka the new black), and snake print.

Side slits and a dropped back hem allow you to wear it tucked or untucked, and as an added bonus, it’s available in so many fun colors.

(Though it looks amazing tucked into a pair of ‘70s-chic bellbottoms, as see on the model in the picture, too.)
