1. A Basic Tank 🎽

Every woman needs a go-to basic tank in her capsule wardrobe. Our most popular and best-selling tank tops are our Reversible Tank Tops from Elietian. These tanks come in a variety of solid colors from neutrals to bright and bold hues. We love the slimming and shaping effect that these tanks give, as well as their buttery soft feel. These tanks can be worn on their own tucked into a pair of linen pants or shorts, but they are equally as easy to layer under blouses, kimonos, or light summer sweaters. Another great option for a staple tank is our Reversible Bamboo Cami from Carlie B. Slightly less fitted but equally as buttery soft, these tanks are amazing for those hot summer days due to their lightweight and breathable bamboo fabrication. Wear them on their own or layered under your favorite blouse, kimono, or open-knit summer sweater!
