The Best White Tank Tops For Women

Here are my top 10 picks of the best white tank tops to wear all year long from the easy and inexpensive to the slip-on some necklaces because, damn it, you’re putting on some makeup and headed out the door and want to be seen.

A white tank top is both a basic and must-have in your wardrobe. And when it comes to making it onto the list of the best white tank tops for women its got its own list of needed credentials to make it into your drawer and on your body. While plain white tees will always make the top ten list of essentials, it’s the underrated tank top that works morning, noon, and night. It’s your workout top to sleeping attire, your layering piece for Fall, and your go-to when you want something light and fitted to pair with just about anything when the heat is scorching. Check out all the variations.

In a roundup article by Dominique Pariso for NY mag that included my top white tank picks, I wrote that Splendid is one of those “go-to brands that we all succumb to eventually and pleasantly realize that there’s a reason we all become followers.” When it comes to this tank top, those reasons include that “the fabric is soft” and “the price is just right” for something you can wear over and over (and over) again. The V-shaped neckline makes this tank look slightly more unique.

In my favorite white tank tops picks for New York magazine on The Strategist page this henley was one of my go-tos. “If you’re looking for a white tank top that’s got a bit more going for it in terms of subtle details, stylist Alison Deyette suggests these henley-style ones from Gap that can be buttoned (or unbuttoned) around the chest. While you can certainly wear them buttoned up for more of a classic white-tank look, Deyette’s advice is to “unbutton a few buttons and stack on a few pendant necklaces; suddenly, what could have looked ho-hum is alluring.”

Day in, day out this one from Re/Done can be worn on the daily.

Could you make this yourself? Probably. But if you’re feeling a little of DIY fatigue it’s best just to scoop up this cute knitted tank and call it your best task of the day.

For something more substantial in weight, style, and construction I’m going for this knit tank by the in-house team at Intermix. It definitely elevates the look of my loose-fitting ankle cropped pants or when tucked into a sweet gingham skirt. More form-fitting too.

When a scoop or v-neck is not your thing there’s also high necklines.
