The Most Attainable It-Girl Staple of the Season: Tank Tops are Here to Stay
It’s the simple and effortless trend taking over all of our feeds right now. An ode to the comeback of minimalist fashion, the old-faithful tank top is having its well-overdue moment. It’s not exactly revolutionary, and chances are, you already have one tucked away in your drawer, but try-less aesthetic is in and the tank top is leading the way, from the streets to the runway.
A nod to the ’90's and early 2000's street style, the tank top paired with low-rise denim jeans was a uniform among the likes of Kate Moss and Paris Hilton. This long-overlooked basic has fast become one of the most coveted hero wardrobe pieces this Summer. The contemporary tank top is holding its own as we embrace post-lockdown comfort dressing, ath-luxury and the reign of the capsule wardrobe.
Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa and Kendall Jenner have brought the spotlight to the modest tank, snapped in chic, just-ducked-out ensembles that we can emulate at home. This undergarment-turned-outer is a must-have when mastering the art of the high-low, polished wardrobe and convenience dressing. And while it’s a trend that’s far from cutting edge, the comeback of the tank top should undoubtedly be on your radar.
