Every change of season comes with apartment cleaning, a wardrobe revamp, and ultimately having to store away your beloved clothing staples of the season’s past. But to keep things consistent, you can always count on a classic tank as an article of clothing that remains a year-round staple.
Whether it’s a boiling New York City summer day or a crisp Fall afternoon, a crew-cut tank goes perfectly as is or even paired with your favorite off-the-shoulder knit sweater. I for one, always go for the look of a basic crew tank. Why? Simply because of its versatile nature. Plus, there’s absolutely no way it’ll dress you down.
You see, a problem area of my own has always been my broad shoulders—hence, the off-the-shoulder knitted sweater ode given above. I’m always looking for a stylish way to accentuate my broad build while finding every excuse in the book not to wear a bra. Truth, I promise.
If you’re in the market for a crew tank to pair with your favorite oversized blazer and gold chain necklace (look, I’m already creating outfits in my head) or simply looking for a good basic to wear all year around, look no further than the five options below. Every tank listed is lightweight, airy and ultra flattering to a tee.
Boys Lie Ribbed Sea Tank
I call this the baby boy tank. The Boys Lie logo is patched to perfection right in the middle, giving off a sporty feel.
