We’d wager a guess that your trusty tank tops see a lot of wear during summer. Us, too. For off-duty, an effortless pairing with denim is our go-to, but for more formal affairs, a fitted version that tucks into tailored pieces like high-waisted culottes and structured skirts can provide polish. Either way, the hero piece gets an instant boost that can go from work to cocktails in seconds flat (it doesn’t get better than that, right?). Ahead, three easy-yet-gorgeous tank top looks to try—prepare to get loads of mileage out of the fail-safe basic.
Style Your Tank Top
A linen-blend wrap skirt is a breathable pairing option for a plain white tank in hot weather. To finish, structural yet pared-back accessories offer a sleek sense of polish.
