Shopping Your Closet: The Basic White Tank

[I used to show you how to pull off runway trends in the series “Rock the Look.” In this new series, I’ll be taking a different item you probably already have in your closet each week and showing you three new ways to wear it. After all, the best shopping tip anyone will give you is to only buy pieces that work with something you already own. Last week we played around with those shorts you have in your closet and this week we’re going to put that white tank to work.]

Everyone has a basic white tank, like this classic Theory top, in their wardrobe. Maybe you wear it under a sweater, or with sweats on a lazy day. However, that basic white tank is not reaching its full fashion potential. Such a versatile piece can be worn in so many different ways, it’s like having ten outfits in one!

Here are three new ways to rock that tank top:

1. Tuck it into jeans and add a cute belt and necklace. This look is very classic and effortlessly chic.

2. Pair a basic white tank with a high-waisted skirt for a stylish daytime summer look. Depending on the occasion, dress this style up even more by adding a bib necklace or a stack of bangle bracelets.

3. A white tank is also a great layering top. When the weather’s not too hot, wear it under a blazer. For warmer days, try a chic vest.
