The Best Everyday Summer Tanks

Last year, I did I purged a good portion of my closet with the help of the Marie Kondo Method. You can check out that full post here, it’s kind of mind blowing and now’s a great time to tackle this project. One of the things I got rid of, and got rid of several of the same, were my tank tops. I had these Madewell v-neck pocket tanks. I had them in every color and stripe you could imagine. Why? Who knew. I knew I wanted tanks and I just figured those were the best. Wrong.

After realizing they weren’t me, nor are they flattering, I had to replace them! This summer I realized as I would get dressed and wanting to grab a tank, I had none! These more fitted tanks made the cut in my closet, but they’re not something I would typically grab to wear every day that’s comfortable and casual for just running a quick errand. I needed a version of my favorite tees but in a tank top version. So I was on the hunt! I stumbled onto two great tanks and ended up buying several colors in each. I’ve been wearing them non stop and had to share my finds with you in case you’re also on the hunt for the perfect everyday tank.

The Best Everyday Simple Tank Tops

Madewell Tomboy Tank

The perfect simple v-neck tank. This tank has a bit of a heavier knit to it than a thin cotton tee. It’s a cotton poly blend and has a slightly loose fit to it. It comes in nearly a dozen colors and most are on sale. Full price is $29.50, but many colors are on sale for as low as $14. I took my usual size small in this tank.

Mango Cotton Tank

For only $10, this is a solid find. It’s 100% organic cotton and has the perfect scoop neck. It comes in 4 colors and this lilac is so pretty. It’s a thinner fabric than the Madewell one which is nice and light especially for hot summer months. I took my usual size small in this tank.

    Madewell has always had great basics and I’m itching to try the tomboy tank but I think that the Mango one takes the cake! Such a good price and I love the lavender color!

    LOVE a good tank! Been living in my nude sweater tank lately. Need a more casual one though – thinking that Madewell Tom Boy Tank may be the one. Love the cut of it!
