by Ashley Smith-Neily 30 Mar 2023 0 Comments

Tank tops are such simple wardrobe staples, we sometimes forget it’s possible to make them the star of our ensemble. Tank tops are perfect for layering and can be worn by itself making them easy to style for summer or winter. Learn how to style a tank top by following these simple styling tips. 

What Is a Tank Top?

A tank top is a sleeveless, collarless shirt typically with thick straps, differentiating them from thin-strapped camisoles. These summer wardrobe essentials are easy to wear on their own in warm temperatures; in colder weather, they layer well under various shirts, jackets, and coats.

Types of Tank Tops  

Like many other types of shirts, there are a variety of tank tops that come with different cuts and necklines. Scoop neck tanks have a round and wide neckline, while V-neck tanks feature a slight V shape. Some tanks are form-fitting, while others are loose and flowy.  

How to Style a Tank Top 

Follow these tips to add some flair and style to a basic tank top: 
Accessorize boldly. Tank tops are primarily basics, often coming in solid colors making them a great canvas for all your accessories. One of the easiest ways to add style to your tank top is by adding on a few stacked chains or one bold necklace.

Layer like a pro. Basic tank tops are great layering pieces. Pair oversized outerwear (like an oversized white button up, a boxy denim jacket or a knee-length duster coat) with a solid neutral color tank top for a casual yet chic look. Add an oversized blazer or leather jacket over your tank top for some trendy yet sophisticated outfit.

Try an athleisure twist. Athleisure naturally works well for tank tops. Pair a basic tank with leggings or sweatpants, a dad hat, and your favorite white sneakers for a casual look. 

Pair with voluminous or oversized pieces - Adding a fitted tank top to a flowy maxi skirt, or really wide leg jeans, is the perfect way to create balance. You can also pair a fitted tank with skinny jeans and add an oversized layer to create harmony.
