In Defense Of The Simple Tank Top

Top, jeans, boots. Is an outfit consisting of three pieces of clothing (slipper socks, I’m not counting you) really worthy of editorial? Why, yes! It may not be my daily mufti, but sometimes, the simple things in life are the best. Enter: the tank. I’ve invested heavily in this piece over the years and learned that a good one can be tricky to find — but, thankfully, they are now in accessible abundance. (Hollerrrr seventies revival!) Current roll call includes a Blake Ldn, a tank that almost masquerades as a tabard, Bella Freud, and this zingy guy from Zara.
Layer one over a poloneck or shirt now, sans any of that, including brassiere, later (this photo was taken several weeks ago, when it was actually on the cusp of GETTING WARM). My favorite way to wear a tank is with any denim that isn’t skinny and my pretty-much-worn-every-day Gucci boots. But, I'm also thinking of matching my red suede skirt for my next tank ensemble...
