There's an audio that's trending on TikTok that goes "People think I'm obsessed with this, but I'm okay with it. I am obsessed with it," and I think that pretty much sums up the relationship fashion girls have right now with their tank tops. Seeing as casual style has taken center stage as everyone's preferred mode of dressing lately, a number of unfussy basics are now earning top spots in our wardrobes—tank tops being one of them.

Okay, so maybe obsession is going too far here, but I'm definitely seeing tons of cute tank tops this summer that fashion girls are keen on wearing with jeans, shorts, trousers, and skirts alike. Whether they're on the basic side (like a good old ribbed tank) or have a detail that makes them stand out like a one-shoulder design or pretty smocked material, there are too many great options to pick from, which is why I went ahead and sourced the best ones that don't ring up for more than $50. Keep scrolling to find your next favorite tank.
