Your Guide to Getting a Fresh Summer Look With a Tank Top

Summer's a great season to show off everything that has been covered up the previous few months, and one of the must-haves in your summer wardrobe is the tank top. Both men and women can combine tanks with various other clothing items to look on trend in the summer.


Beach Looks

Women can combine their tank top a floral sarong or a maxi skirt for a more covered-up beach look. For a cute look, throw on a pair of colourful beach shorts to match the tank. Another fuss-free option is to simply wear it on top of a bikini. For men, combining a tank top with beach shorts or swimwear keeps it simply and classic.


Party Outfits

For a girl's night out or a drinks party, the trendy lady can pair a spaghetti strap or halter tank top with a pair of skinny jeans, a short pencil or skater skirt, or even a pair of leggings if the tank top is long. If the overall outfit looks too simple, spice it up with a chunky necklace or a pair of big earrings. A pair of heels completes the tank top party look. Men who want to look more dressy while wearing tanks can wear a chequered shirt or even a light summer jacket left open over their tank. Complete it with some cargo trousers or jeans. Add a belt with a big buckle to jeans to look even more masculine.


Raves and Concerts

The heat can really build up at raves and concerts, so choose light and airy tank tops. For a sexy rave outfit, pair an asymmetrical thick strap midriff-baring tank top with a pair of hip-length shorts. You can modify this outfit by wearing a regular tank top with an off-shoulder T-shirt. Alternatively, a spaghetti strap or halter tank with a short skirt would also look good. For men, show off your body with a mesh tank top and a pair of casual shorts or jeans. Those who would rather cover up can opt for a printed tank instead.


Formal Ensembles

Men should not wear tank tops as part of a formal outfit, but women can get away with it with the right pairings. Combine a plain-coloured tank top with a blazer or cardigan and a pencil skirt or a pair of slacks, and you have a winner. However, if unsure whether such attire is acceptable in a particular formal setting, err on the side of conservative and stick with an universally accepted formal outfit.
