Top 10 White Tank Tops

Your Summer Wardrobe Isn't Complete Without One Of These Top-Rated White Tanks

There’s no denying the popularity of maximalism. Color blocking, pattern mixing, and oversized garments populate the most recent high fashion runways, and after literal years of social distancing, shoppers want to make a statement as they venture outside. Still, that age-old mantra “less is more” remains more relevant than ever. Bold #OTDs aside, certain tried-and-true basics are still timeless, including but not limited to the little black dress, denim shorts, stiletto heels, and the camel trench coat. But when it comes to summer style specifically, the must-have closet basic is the white tank top.

Whether it’s fitted, free-flowing, or tied up, the plain white tank top is one of those understated items that can be used for more than simply layering with a cardigan or button-up. The best white tops, when simply paired with jeans, will deliver the effortless, fashion-forward vibe of an off-duty style influencer. In fact, the best white tank top can be paired with just about anything and look just as stylish as pieces with the most statement-making bells and whistles. The key to shopping for a white tank top is quality. An item as versatile as this one will be worn frequently and in a variety of ways, which means the fabric should have lasting power and look fresh no matter how many times it’s used.

Meladyan Racerback Rib Knit Crop Tank

Our Score

4.45

WHY IT MADE THE LIST: This cropped racerback tank is great for working out or lounging around in style. The thick seam is there to help the tank keep its shape over time and wear. 

USER REVIEW: “I love these tank tops! They are super cute. I purchased two to start with, and now I have five total! They look great with high-waisted pants and skirts and are super thick, so you can’t see through them. I even have one in white, and it's not see-through at all. I ordered a medium, and they don’t shrink when you wash them.”

Re/Done Ribbed Tank

Our Score

4.55
