Trends may come and go, but it's the true basics that stick around in every fashion lover's wardrobe. No piece is as classic as a basic black tank top, and Hailey Baldwin might have just found the perfect one.
Baldwin stepped out in Los Angeles on May 19 wearing a sleek outfit that's a go-to for so many: a pair of light-wash jeans, a black top, and a black jacket. But Baldwin's outfit featured more elevated pieces that took the look from boring to fashionable. Her blazer-style jacket was slightly oversized and more boxy to match her wide-leg, slouchy jeans.
The understated star of her outfit was a black racerback tank top by Alexander Wang. The high-neck, ribbed piece features a dainty white logo on the front and the perfect cropped hemline. The sporty top is the perfect mix between athleisure and high fashion, making Baldwin's entire look appear cool and relaxed without looking too intentional.
The model accessorized her look with a pair of white Adidas sneakers, a black western-inspired belt with an oversized silver clasp, a white top-handle bag, and black square-framed sunglasses by Celine. Her jewelry was kept simple, too, opting for a selection of barely there silver necklaces.
This isn't the first time Baldwin has gone back to basics with her outfits. She recently wore a similar spaghetti-strap tank by cool-girl brand Inamorata. And she's not alone, either. Celebrities like Zoë Kravitz and Kendall Jenner have also relied on the wardrobe staple lately.
Having a selection of high-quality, simple pieces can make getting dressed in warmer temperatures a breeze. Style your tank like Baldwin did, or pair it with a pair of cutoff shorts. You can also marry a simple tank with a high-waisted skirt for a more elevated approach.
The best part about stocking up on classic tank tops is that you don't have to spend a ton to do so. Brands like ASOS and Topshop are known for wide selections of different fits and cuts, so you're sure to find a silhouette that works for you. And why stop at just black? Have a wide variety of colors in your wardrobe — from neutrals to brights — so you have tons of versatility this season.
