If seeing that photo of Emma Chamberlain (the CEO of cropped white tank tops) doesn't convince you that this is the one summertime basic you should take seriously, then I don't know what will. White, ribbed, and cropped tank tops are the definition of summer in my book. I wear my assortment to death with everything from swimsuits to loose jeans to tailored trousers. The cropped length allows you to wear this top with a variety of bottom styles, the classic necklines are a shoo-in for layering of all kinds, and truth be told, they are always so cheap. This means you can stock up on a small handful for the summer ahead because I have a feeling this will be the most-worn item in your closet, hands down.
In case you haven't already noticed, I definitely have a weird obsession with this summer basic, and because of that, I know that finding the perfect tank is honestly rather hard, even though you might think they are super easy to locate. Since I know you're busy living your life, I thought I would do all the digging for you and present my personal curation of the best white, ribbed, and cropped tank tops on the market right now. I have tried and love most of the ones from Zara, Aritzia, and Amazon, and the rest are ones I am eyeing for the new summer season ahead. Either way, you can't go wrong with purchasing any of the tanks ahead.
