When it's 90 degrees, no matter how effective of a coolant you wish your iced coffee was, there's only so much it's going to do in terms of your overall comfort level. Add in a little public transportation or a car that's been sitting in the sun all day, and wearing as little as possible is going to start feeling like the best decision you've made in a while. But understanding that in most communities 'No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service' is a thing (unless you live in a beach town, in which case, lucky you), tank tops are a worthy investment. And while some people might think it's strange to put any meaningful money down on something so flimsy, just think of the wear-to-dollar ratio. That should make it worth it in the grand scheme of things.
Zara Cropped Top With Armhole Detail : High neck, low back, floaty hemline, and decorated, grommeted side-boob shields. What more could you ask for in a top?
3.1 Phillip Lim Cropped Perforated Tank Top: A boxy fit can be really flattering when worn with the proper bottoms—I'd suggest a skirt with a little bit of a kick or high-waisted wide leg trousers that encroach on culotte territory.
Trademark Beral Tank Top: All the likable things about a baseball tee, compacted and made better for summertime heat.
Base Range Roma Silk Tank : Here we have a silk tank that is, surprisingly, as light as it looks. The straight-across cut at the neckline and hem give it a basic (in a good way) feel, which means it works as a layering piece or on its own.
For Love & Lemons Cherry Red Snuggler Tank : For the girl who loves a knit year round—but who also appreciates a breeze around the armpit area. In other words, someone who wants the best of both worlds. Demand a lot from your clothes.
