The only top you need this summer is a white tank top - here's how to style it

When putting together your summer wardrobe, there are a few pieces that you can’t go without: a good pair of jeans, a denim jacket, a pair of everyday sandals and, most importantly, a white tank top. This simple basic can be worn season after season and styled in countless ways – especially when it comes to your summer outfits.

The best thing about this essential piece is the variety of styles available on the market. For me, a higher collar with ribbing is more flattering, but there are so many fabrics and cuts to choose from that will suit anyone and everyone. Your wardrobe will grow instantly when you invest in this staple piece and with the wide range of silhouettes available, the smallest details can make the biggest difference.

The styling options of this classic piece are truly endless, which can be a little intimidating when getting dressed in the morning – but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for some new inspiration to spice up your wardrobe for the upcoming summer, read on for eight ways we’re styling a classic white tank this season. And the best part? Many of these pieces are probably already in your closet.

1. All White

You can’t go wrong with an all white outfit if you want to look and feel your best. There’s something so fresh and clean about a crisp white top paired with your favorite pair of casual white jeans. This monochromatic fit is a quintessential summer look that can be worn seamlessly from day to night—just swap the flats for heels for a dressier look.

2. With Your Favorite Jeans

A t-shirt and jeans are a notorious can’t go wrong combo. You know the saying “Never change a running system”? Well, this simple formula doesn’t need a revamp, but can be updated to feel fresh for 2024. Grab your favorite tank top, pair it with some good old blue jeans and you’re good to go.

3. With a Pair of Tailored Shorts

For days when it’s blazing hot but a polished look is still required, you can’t go wrong with a tank top and a pair of tailored shorts. It gives the same polished impression as a t-shirt and pants, but in a warm, weather-friendly way. Complete the look with a belt and you have a versatile base that you can wear again and again.

4. With a Mini Skirt

Grab your tiny micro mini and take your denim skirt to the next level with a crew neck tank top or your favorite jacket. If you can’t decide which jacket to wear, you can’t go wrong with denim on denim, especially on a warm summer day.

5. With a Denim Midi Skirt

If the micro mini skirt isn’t your thing, try pairing a cotton jersey tank top with a denim midi skirt. The denim midi skirt made its breakthrough last summer, and if you still have one in your closet, see this as a sign to pull yours out. Pair the tank top and skirt combo with your favorite sneakers or western boots.

6. With a blazer

The classic ribbed tank top is easy to dress up or down, making it the perfect piece for your capsule wardrobe. Heading to the club or a fancy night out? Pair a cropped tank top with a sequin mini skirt and a matching oversized blazer for a perfect going-out look.
