We wrangled three R29 women who have very different styles and asked them for their interpretations of the simple item. The results, as expected, were as different as each staffer's personality — click through to see what they whipped up!
Madewell Summertime Tank Dress, $45, available at Madewell.
Willow Lindley, fashion and beauty assistant
"I love that this dress works on its own or under a shirt. When I am out and about on summer weekends, it's perfect because I can layer it appropriately as the day goes on. Pairing it with this denim shirt gives me a little more coverage but it's not as hot as a jean jacket. Slip on my sneakers and I am ready to roam around all day long!"
Willow is wearing a Madewell chambray shirt, Pieces pearl collar, Converse sneakers, and a vintage Coach bag.
Alison Koplar, VP of sales & corporate development
"A tank dress can be styled for work just as easily as it can for weekends. I like to pair it with a go-to blazer, a pair of heels, and that big ol' work bag that I'm always lugging around and I'm basically ready for any meeting during the summer."
Alison is wearing a white slip, her own blazer, CÉLINE bag, Zara heels, and vintage earrings.
Julia Anderson, associate director of brand integration "An easy way to dress up a casual tank dress is to layer it under something fun and festive, like this faux-leather skirt. Adding a strappy black heel and bold necklace make this outfit perfect for any night-out occasion!"
Julia is wearing and H&M skirt, Steve Madden heels, Topshop necklace, and vintage bag.
