As the weather begins to warm up, we reach for one of our closet staples, tank tops. More than just a top that you wear with shorts while doing chores, tank tops that are worn the right way and paired properly can elevate and modernize an outfit.
Pair a Silky Tank Top With a Short Skirt
Create a cute yet refined style wearing a tank top made with high-quality silk. Choose a top that has thin straps for a delicate appearance. For the skirt, look for one that hits midthigh and that has layers or pleats. Finish this ensemble with embellished flats and simple pearl earrings. A pencil skirt is another refined way to pair a tank top. Pencil skirts have a classic look. Pair a silk tank worn under a waist-length cardigan sweater and slip on a pair of heels for a timeless outfit.
Layer Under Blazers or Jackets
Versatile and classic, tank tops for women go perfectly under blazers. You can pair a variety of tank top styles and designs with designer jeans, tailored slacks, or skirts. This slightly upscale outfit is one you can wear to the office, on a date, or for most semiformal occasions. For an edgy look, wear a leather jacket over your tank top.
Tuck a High-Necked Tank Top Into High-Waisted Shorts
High-neck tank tops help to streamline your upper body. Pick a tank top with wide straps or even a racerback style and tuck the top into high-waisted shorts. This style of shorts gives your legs a lean look that completes the streamlined effect. Adding a belt to the shorts can help to give your waist an extra slim appearance. Make a cute statement by wearing espadrille sandals with a ribbon that ties around your ankle.
Accessorize With the Right Jewelry
Adding the right jewelry to your tank top outfit can help tie the ensemble together. A deep scoop neck tank top looks great with layered necklaces and hoop earrings. Statement earrings pair nicely with a high-neck tank top, and a choker necklace works well with a slinky tank. Layering up several bangle bracelets on your arms adds a bohemian touch to a tank top, or put an arm cuff around your bicep area for a hip look.
Pair a Neutral Tank Top With Bold Prints
Bold prints make any outfit stand out. One key to wearing bold prints successfully is to not overdo the prints and designs. Wearing a neutral-colored tank top like black, beige, or ivory can help the strong print of the skirt, pants, or shorts stand out. In reverse, you can pair a tank top with abstract designs, bright stripes, or pretty flowers with denim jeans, a white maxi skirt, or pastel-colored capris.
With the right type of material and style, you can create fun, cute, or elegant outfits from your tank top collection. Choosing tops made from sustainable fabrics and materials will help the top retain its shape, last longer, and help reduce an environmental impact on the planet.
