Isn't it nice when the fashion crowd decides to champion a style that's practical, versatile and budget-friendly? Well, our prayers have been answered this season with the return of a '90s fave: the tank top. I know—the last time you wore a tank, you were either at the gym or 15, but this throwback look has seriously upped the ante for 2019 and is looking pretty damn good for its age.
Forget the saggy, ill-fitting iterations of the past—the new styles are sleek, sophisticated, and nothing but grown-up. In all honesty, it took us a while to get on board with the idea of revisiting this teen staple, but the more we saw our favourite influencers adopting the look, the more convinced we became on the tank top's versatility and fashion kudos.
The key uniting factor in tank top styling seems to be balancing out the slim-fit silhouette with high-waisted, looser fit bottoms. Think tailored trousers, straight-leg jeans, flowy midi skirts and even cargo trousers (yes, really). If nothing else, this trend will be a godsend during a heatwave—you'll thank yourself when you're stuck on a sweaty tube this weekend. Scroll down to see and shop our favourite tank top outfits.
