This is my fifth post in the Summer Must-Have series. These are modern, versatile items to add to your Summer wardrobe. Check out previous posts: Striped dress, Nude shoes, Light colored jeans, and Lightweight sweater.
Colorful tank tops add a fun, cheery component to Summer outfits. There’s no need to break the bank on tank tops since they’re casual items and it can be easy to tire of the colors or patterns quickly. Check out lower-end stores such as Modcloth, Target, Forever21, and H&M for fairly priced options and variety.
Wearing colorful tank tops with shorts or jeans is a no-brainer and an easy look. You can also pair it with a skirt tucked or untucked. Tops made of higher quality fabric can be worn with a blazer to work or with bare arms if your office is not too conservative.
Modcloth Chevron Tank Top
This bright orange top will look great against tan Summer skin and the vertical line down the middle creates a slimming effect. I would love to see it with cut off jeans or a grey skirt. Steer clear of too much black to avoid a Halloween look.
Le Chateau Tank Blouse
This tank comes in several colors with the green and blue being my favorites. It’s a simple, classic tank that can be worn by all body types, but top-heavy women be aware that the pockets will add bulk to your bustline. This is a candidate for the office if worn with a blazer/cardigan and professional skirt/pants, but make sure the necklace doesn’t come down too low.
Modcloth Red Pattern Tank Top
A fun, comfortable printed tank top. This is too casual for work but it’s perfect for outdoor activities or running errands!
Modcloth Blue Lace Tank Top
A delicate, lace top to create a romantic, pretty look. Style with a messy braid or long dainty necklace. Depending on your workplace, you may be able to wear this to the office by adding a cardigan or blazer.
Guess Coral Tank Top
I love the textured straps on this tank and the beautiful coral color that is flattering on everyone. This tank is perfect for a sunny day on the beach. Style it with a white bottom as seen here or jean shorts. You may want to limit jewelry as necklaces and earrings may compete with the beaded straps.
