Wear them anywhere, wear them everywhere.
Bright colors are great, prints are punchy, and when it comes to mixing and matching, the more, the merrier. It’s all true, but sometimes you just want to turn off your fashion brain and obtain dressed. And in that case, there’s nothing easier than basic black.
The color never falls out of favor and matches pretty much everything. And because of all that versatility, the same top can read as elegant or edgy depending on what it’s worn with. It’s a good hue to go with for an investment item—you’re almost guaranteed to obtain more wears out of a little black dress than a little blue turquoise number—but it’s also a good pick for everyday pieces.
Enter Amazon’s The Drop, its trendiest line that’s reliably stocked with matters you’ve had on your mental shopping list. From tanks with Y2K-skinny straps to elegant cutouts, these are the pieces worth considering right now.
The drawstring on this pick lets you decide how high you want the rise, allowing you to customize it for however much skin you want to show and your torso length (cue individuals on both ends of the 5-foot-something spectrum rejoicing).
A silky camisole will always pull double duty, working well as a layer or on its own. The delicately draped neckline of this find creates an elevated twist, literally, on the basic tank style.
This short top pairs well with high-waisted bottoms, and there’s something pleasingly symmetrical about the way the elbow-length sleeves line up directly with the hemline.
Sexy and comfy don’t go together as much as they should, but this pick manages to merge both. It’s as soft and stretchy as your favorite worn-in tank, but the adjustable cord on the front lets you show off some navel.
Ah, the racerback. Cribbed from athletes who need to be able to move, it’s got a sporty-chic vibe and is universally flattering to the shoulder area.
Even a closet stocked with solid-colored long-sleeve tops likely doesn’t have one like this. An elongated cutaway at the neck is intriguing, adding a nice bit of oomph to a plain top-and-jeans moment.
Is it a top? A cardigan? A sweater? No, no, and not really. This hard-to-define style is sleek and sexy, with a definite nod to some of the best-dressed women of the aughts.
For those that can’t handle their cottagecore feeling too saccharine, this noir top has the same silhouette elements—clock the delicate peplum, puffed sleeves, and ruched bodice—without a girly color or print.
Black leather always has a sexy edge to it—and black vegan leather is no different. This twisted-neck top works for evenings out or daring days and costs way less than the real thing.
All it takes is wearing one good tank top to realize all iterations of the easy shape aren’t the same. The wide shoulder straps and substantial cotton weave of this pick will create it a closet favorite.
