To love & layer: pretty summer tanks

Like popsicles and pool floats, tank tops are an undeniable part of summer. These sleeveless wonders can be layered for work or worn solo on the weekend. A pretty, detailed tank can make a style statement or add a kimono and jean shorts for a look hotter than a city sidewalk. Get ready to discover fresh takes on our famous 24/7 tanks, trendy patterns (animal print, anyone?) and outfits for each and every sunny occasion. Here’s how our amazing stylists are wearing the must-have tanks of the season.

Which tanks are you wearing solo?

“Strappy and front-tie tanks are perfect solo. There’s really no need to layer unless you add a bralette and finish the look with some jewelry.” –


“I love wearing tanks by themselves and pairing with fun sandals and accessories! It gets so hot in Texas, those extra details really complete the look. Our button-front tank is one of my favorites to wear solo.”- @sarahxware


“Summer patterns are fun to experiment with! We have some great animal prints like snake skin and leopard and beautiful floral prints that can definitely stand alone.” – @danielle_lindsey_tn

How are you layering tanks for summer?

“You can pair tanks with kimonos, plaid, and denim jackets. I also adore a strappy tank I can wear with a pretty bralette.” – @danielle_lindsey_tn

“The embroidered yoke tank is perfect for layering. Wearing it with a front tuck helps give it a refined look, especially paired with denim shorts and a kimono.” – @sarahxware

“Lately, I’ve been layering my chiffon tank tops with a lot of blazers and kimonos.” –

What do you love most about tanks?

“I love wearing tanks tucked in with high-waisted shorts and sneakers or some cute flats or sandals. For a night out look, I add a blazer, jacket or kimono and change my shoes to heels or wedges!” –

“Tanks are so easy to take from work with a blazer to a night out with the girls by losing the blazer and adding fun heels and jewelry.”- @sarahxware

“My work wardrobe contains mainly tanks. I love being able to transition them through any season. In Tennessee, you really never know what the weather will hold, so I like that I can wear the same tank styled different ways.” – @danielle_lindsey_tn
