With more than two-thirds of summer done and dusted, there’s one item that has made a solid appearance in my summer wardrobe rotation – my racer tank tops. A decent tank top is a wardrobe must – if I had my way, everybody would have one. Whether your personal style is minimalist or maximalist, you can’t go wrong with this flattering closet staple. Seriously, just get amongst it!

My racer tank style of choice is the fitted ribbed variety. The fitted style is not only comfortable but offers styling versatility in spades. And you’re spoilt for choice considering both high end designers and high street labels have their own version of the wardrobe staple. When it comes to choosing your ideal racer tank, prioritise fabrics that are breathable and mid-weight to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the day. And while the necklines look quite same-same to the uninitiated, there are some labels that just nail the cut – the perfect balance between the high crew neckline and the cutaway detail around the shoulders – one of those labels being Anine Bing who just nail it with their ribbed knit version (which I have in three colours!). It has been the perfect foundation for layering necklaces and it looks chic with whatever bottoms I’m rock that day – whether it be my flowy silk skirts or relaxed fit denim. 

To showcase their versatility, I’ve included a selection of recent summer outfits where I’ve relied on my racer tanks. And if you scroll right to the end, I’ve rounded up a selection of the best racer tanks I’ve stumbled across recently for you to check out for yourself!

As always, thanks for stopping by.
