If I had to pack for a last-minute trip I would throw jeans, plain tees and tanks, and a dress in a suitcase. There is little I love more than a simple white top paired with denim. I like how classic it is, and I also like that any hairstyle, make-up look, or jewelry choices can affect how casual and relaxed or dressed up that outfit can be.
Since I wear tops like this so often, I always make sure the fit is exactly what I want, the fabric is relatively easy to care for, and the tops are something I love to wear.
When you are looking for an easy tank to wear with so many different bottoms, this ruffle sleeve option is perfect. If they made it in white my dreams would have come true, but I’ll happily take the black for a classic with a twist.
This is my go-to white tee to wear with anything from leggings to jeans. I like the rounded hem when I want a bit more coverage and the vibe to be relaxed and casual.
Another favorite tee from Z Supply is the classic pocket tee. It’s a mix of cotton and polyester (versus the “cotton slub” tee I mention above that is 100% cotton). It is a little slinkier in the fabric, fits a bit longer in the body, and the v-neck is a little lower than the cotton slub.
I love the Madewell Tomboy tank for a boxier, shorter fit that looks really cute tucked into jeans. The v-neck isn’t too low and the fabric and shape is classic and relaxed.
This is an easy to wear on-trend tank for spring and summer. I love the buttons and the front-tie. I buy a lot of my Gap brand tops in “tall” when I’m able to because I like the extra length.
I love this tank from Z Supply because I can wear a regular bra with it. It’s a simple cut, relaxed in the body, and has a raw edge pocket. I also love this pocket racer tank with a racerback for casual athleisure days.
I have this waffle tank in a few colors from the brand Miholl on Amazon. It’s an easy weekend tank that I find myself wearing often!
The most classic shape of the bunch is the Madewell Whisper Cotton V-neck pocket tee. It has a straight hem, relaxed fit, and is versatile to throw on with a casual pair of joggers, or can be front tucked into a pair of dark denim for a slightly dressier look.
The easiest tee of all is the Madewell crewneck whisper cotton tee. It has a rounded hem, a slight drop shoulder seam, a ribbed collar, and generally fits like a dream. It’s relaxed and the “ideal” length in my opinion!
A last-minute addition to the line up is the Caslon Muscle Tank. I got it in a recent Trunk Club and loved it so much I ordered another color. It’s a longer tank with thin and lightweight material and has a scoop neck. The white is a bit sheer but a nude bra hides easily under the fabric.
If you are looking for the perfect conservative tank to wear with leggings, this one by Spanx is exactly what you’ve been looking for. Trust me, I have it in white and black, and it’s what I choose more often than not on days I’m wearing leggings. Because it feels a little like an athletic fabric I don’t love to wear it with jeans, but joggers or leggings are a perfect match for it.
