If you don’t have a white tank top in your closet, let’s fix that right now. This one from Gap is only $7 (!!!) and is a perfect capsule wardrobe piece that doubles as a trendy must-have. If you’re in love with the soft fabrics of Abercrombie basics (me too!), the ‘90s Essential Cami is still an inexpensive option and even comes in a bodysuit for added versatility.

Now, let's get into how to style it. This essential can be worn year-round and styled for every season. Whether you are supportive of the ‘90s comeback or you just want new ways to elevate a basic in your closet, there are so many ways to style a white tank!

With Denim

White tops and denim are a classic combination. High rise, low rise, mom jeans – the white tank looks great with any type of denim. To copy the ’90s supermodel off-duty look, add a thick black belt to break up lines and add structure to the look. Simple accessories like a baseball cap and layered dainty necklaces add a nonchalant vibe to a stellar outfit. 

To recreate the Cindy Crawford Pepsi ad look, swap the jeans for denim cut-off shorts, and wear a white scoop neck bodysuit instead of a cropped tank. Or splurge on a designer tank top for a statement look if you're feeling ultra luxurious.

With Wide-Leg Pants 

Tight-fitting pants have been replaced by wide-leg pants, and we have no complaints. Style a white tank with a pair of wide-leg pants to channel your inner coastal grandmother or add a bright pair for a visually interesting look! Comfortable and casual, wide-leg pants and a white tank create a fun poolside look or an effortless fit for beachside drinks. 

Cargo pants are also on-trend and come in a wide-leg style that looks great with a form-fitting white tank. Add a bold outer layer for a fall transitional look, like a leather jacket or an oversized blazer to balance out a tighter tank. 

With Overalls

In addition to our beloved denim, overalls are having their own moment. To provide some contrast to the outfits above, choose a pair of black overalls! The white and black combination is fun and flirty, and black overalls are a great addition to your summer to fall transition wardrobe. 

Given that the overall colors of this look are relatively neutral, a great way to tie everything together is by matching your bag to your shoes. Add a black bag and black shoes, or add a pop of color like a hair scarf and sandals in a matching hue. Purposeful choices in accessories can easily elevate a basic look. 

With a Cardigan

White tanks make great layering pieces when the weather gets colder. A chunky knit cardigan is soft and feminine (especially in pink!), and looks beautiful over a white tank. A foolproof outfit idea: Wear this top combo with denim, a midi skirt, and any of the other above options for a sweet look this fall. 

With a Matching Set

If you were influenced by the steady matching set trend on Insta and TikTok, do not worry – a white tank top can give a matching set new life! Simply wear the tank underneath a button-down top and don’t button it. Accessorize with sunnies and a straw beach bag for a beachy vibe. Easy to grab for a morning at the farmer’s market or coffee with a friend, a matching set can be both casual and cute!

Closing Thoughts

The best trends only cost $7 and this versatile basic will be worn time and time again. How will you style your white tank?
