The Basic Tank


As I mentioned, basics are the foundation of your wardrobe. They help pull everything together. Having a solid set of basics allows you to always have something to wear.


The basic tank is one of the hardest working pieces in a wardrobe. In the summer pair it with shorts, wear it under low-cut dresses, or layer it under lightweight hoodies (for those cool summer nights...if you live somewhere that actually cools down at night. I know nothing about that. #desertliving). When it gets cooler they become the base layer for almost every outfit. I wear mine under sweaters, sweatshirts, and long sleeves of all kinds. They also become workwear under blazers and office-appropriate jackets.


I'm not sure where my wardrobe would be without a few basic tanks. I like to keep them in black, white, grey, and whatever the color of the season may be. Later, once you have your basics covered, elevate to tanks that play to your personal style.
