Reminder: The White Tank Top Is Your Best Summer Staple

Reminder: The White Tank Top Is Your Best Summer Staple

Can a top be your best friend? We think so.

By Courtney Thompson

Listen, I’m not in the business of looking to baby supermodels to dictate what’s cool and not cool. While I wish was 20, I’m not. And what works for 20-year-olds most certainly doesn’t work for me (and by me, I also mean you)—teensy crop tops, for example. Oh, what we’d all give to be able to wear a teensy crop top again. Not happening, for me at least, anytime soon.

That said, let’s talk about 20-year-old supermodel Bella Hadid and her white tank top situation. It’s crisp, it’s clean, it’s flattering. And most importantly, it’s a glaring reminder that white tank tops are the quintessential shirt we should all be wearing this summer. Pair it with an extravagant, floor-length skirt, ripped cutoffs or frayed-hem jeans and the tank will perfectly tie together whichever look you’re working. (Need more proof? Vogue agrees.) Another idea? Layer it with the summer’s hottest accessory, the kimono!

No, I probably won’t go braless like Hadid did in her Re/Done Ribbed Tank Top, but a slightly cropped version combined with skinny white jeans and booties is crazy cute—and as Vogue reminded us, it’s been the go-to summer look of supermodels for decades now. Who wasn't clamoring for a tank and cutoffs after watchig that 1991 Pepsi commercial?

(Full disclosure: We’ll use any excuse to watch the Cindy Pepsi commercial!) But hopefully that smokin’ hot reminder of why white tanks are everything will get you shopping the options below.
