How To Style A Basic Tank Top For Summer

Share

With balmy weather looming close on the horizon it’s time to resurface our arsenal of summer hero pieces. The white tank is one of our mainstays, but rather than pairing it with denim cutoffs and flats, this year we’re vowing to get a little more creative. Because the basic sees so much wear, we recommend investing in a version that’s classic, well-made and versatile so that it will look immaculate all season whether styled into a work-appropriate look or a head-turning ensemble for going out. If you rely as heavily on the tank top as we do, see our five fresh takes and try them yourself.
