We all have that one fashion item of which we own countless iterations of in our closets. For some, it’s black boots, and for others, it’s white tees. For me, it’s tank tops. I have one entire large drawer dedicated to the simple basic—and while my husband can’t seem to tell one from another—I certainly can! They all have slight differences in silhouettes, textures, fits, and colors. Hey, it’s my thing. Now that summer is in full swing, I’ve been living in tank tops more than anything else, as they’re easy to pair with practically everything from jeans to skirts and shorts.
To prevent tank-top fatigue throughout the season, below I’m sharing plenty of cool ways to style them this summer. From pairing them with statement skirts to styling with summery accessories, if you love tank tops as much as I do keep scrolling for lots of easy and effortless tank-top outfit ideas and shop the looks for yourself.
Nothing elevates a plain white tank top quite like a sleek yet relaxed pair of high-waisted linen trousers. Tie the look together with a chic black belt.
Relaxed and breezy matching shirt-and-short sets are trending hard this summer among the fashion set. Style the duo with a chic white cropped tank top for the perfect summer look.
Shop the matching Heaton Stripe High Waist Cotton Shorts ($48).
For a statement summer look, pair a fun animal print mini skirt with a plain tank top. Bonus if you keep the colors cohesive.
You can’t ever really go wrong with a simple black-tank–and–denim-shorts combo. Simple and effortless. Finish the look with gold jewelry.
How chic and effortlessly elegant is this outfit? Style a basic white tank with a black slip skirt, slides, and an oversize button-down and finish the look with a summery woven bag. Perfection.
Add a free-spirited touch to your basic tank and style it with a floral maxi skirt, clog slides, and plenty of bohemian accessories.
For a smart summer in the city look, add polish to your tank top with black high-waisted shorts and an oversize blazer. Ideal from meetings to margaritas.
