Not-So-Basic Tanks For Spring

These picks prove the style staple is anything but basic.

As we step into spring, a good collection of tank tops is a must. The tank top has long been considered a basic, but many brands have created tanks that are stylish garments in and of themselves. Whether you prefer to throw it on with jeans, tuck it under a skirt or pair it with your favorite denim shorts, these tank tops will carry you through the next few months in style.

Available in calm colors like ivory and pistachio, the Teardrop Rib tank is sure to become your new favorite neutral.

Known for its dedication to social justice, cult-favorite brand K.NGSLEY once again serves an empowering design in the form of a high fashion basic. The brand’s “Ian” tank has an aesthetically pleasing silhouette in the front, but the real pièce de résistance is the open-back detail. The low cut allows the minimalist tank to have maximum impact.

You don’t have to be a baseball fan to obsess over this baseball-hem tank from The Line by K. The brand’s signature mid-weight fabric ensures comfortable coverage, while the design allows a selective showing of skin via a barely-there back. Asymmetry is also incorporated in the form of a playful strap detail.

There’s something avant-garde in the simplicity of the C2H4 Arc Layered tank. Canadian boutique /017 maintains a futuristic edge in all of its designs, so it should be no surprise that its basics feel out of this world. Two curved cuts on the front layer add subtle texture to the tank. The higher hem on the reverse of the top is sparsely detailed with a line of text. The result is an intriguing white tank like none you’ve seen before.
