Tank tops are a wardrobe staple. Whether you’re wearing it as a base layer or on its own, you can find multiple ways to showcase the perfect tank top. We often think of this essential piece of clothing as an undergarment, but more and more, the tank is finding its way into the spotlight.
We’re looking at dressy tank tops in shades of white. Ethereal, angelic, clean, and breezy are all adjectives that pop into our heads when we see someone in a dressy white tank top. As you shop for your perfect tank, think about fabrics, whether or not you need a bra beneath it, and the purpose for which you’ll wear it. If you’re going out for a spaghetti dinner, then it might not be the right thing to wear that night, but if you’re going for a moonlit stroll at the local botanical garden, then it might be the perfect shirt.
Come along with us as we highlight these fifteen great dressy white tank tops.
Lovely In Lace
This spaghetti-strapped camisole hits the right note for a night out. Here it’s paired with jeans for a youthful dressed-up casual look. It’s affordable, and an easy-care rayon/polyester blend fabric. Please note, it does run a little large, so if you’re ordering, you’ll want to drop a size or two.
Sleeveless Layered Lacy White Tank
This tank is a great versatile piece. The double-layer and high neck make it easy to wear your regular bra underneath. It has a feminine floral-lace crochet style upper layer and the same color solid lower layer. Like all easy wear clothing, it’s made of washable polyester which drapes and washes well. This tank runs small, so you’ll need to size up when you order.
Chiffon Sleeveless Classic White Tank
This elegant chiffon tank is the perfect wardrobe staple to go from daytime to nighttime. Wear it under a blazer or sweater to work, then pair it with your favorite skinny jeans and heels as you leave the office. It’s soft polyester, but without give, so it will hold its shape nicely throughout the day.
Ruffle Edged Keyhole Tank Top
This modern classic is another that works great from the workplace to the dance floor. An elegant draping design falls from the subtly ruffled neckline for a flattering fit. The shirt closes with a button on the back of the collar and has a slight keyhole opening, but not so much that it would interfere with bra strap lines being visible. The polyester chiffon fabric makes for super easy care and long-lasting wear.
Wrap Camisole Tank Top
If you’re ready to show off those gorgeous shoulders of yours, this tank is the ticket. A flattering wrap design is sexy and cool with its simple straps that highlight your sleek arm and shoulder area. If you prefer a snug fit, then order a size down because, in your regular size, you’ll have the lovely drape shown here. 95% polyester with 5% spandex gives the shirt a bit of give.
Pleated Double Layer Dressy White Tank
This tank is all about elegance and is perfect for a formal occasion. It’s an excellent choice for a wedding or a cocktail party, either paired with a beaded shrug or worn all on its own. The pleated neckline drops into a beautiful flowy drape, and the loose hemline moves with your body. Because of how the tank sits at your shoulders, you’ll need a strapless bra for this one or none at all.
This billowy loose blouse gives you that tank feel with a bit more shoulder protection. Pintuck pleats on the back give this blouse a free-flowing feel while looking tailored at the same time. As the polyester fabric is quite sheer, you’ll need to keep that in mind when ordering.
Drapey White Tank
This is a beautiful cowl neck drape by Calvin Klein available in plus-sizing. It’s a pullover top in 95% polyester, 5% spandex, which creates the perfect amount of give in the fabric. The fitted silhouette is sure to compliment your figure.
Lacey Sleeveless Tank Top In White
This tank has a sexy and flirty silhouette with its lace-edged spaghetti straps and crocheted front panel. Pair it with your favorite pair of denim shorts or your brightest flowy skirt for a great festival look. The back top has an elastic edge to help hold the shirt in place. It’s a cotton and polyester blend.
Backless Scalloped Edge Tank
The most ultra of feminine tanks. This flirty shirt features a cinched-in waist with a swingy bottom. The scalloped v-neck bodice meets the thinnest of spaghetti straps, which crisscross across the back in the sexiest of styles. It has a zipper closure for a contoured fit, and the spaghetti straps are adjustable. You’ll be ready for the club in this one.
Summer Tank For The Office
You need something to get you through the hottest days of summer but to look still classy and stylish. This tank from Chico’s fits those criteria. It has a longer length, and the layered crisscross of fabric gives you full coverage for workplace modesty. A relaxed fit, scoop neck, and back zipper make this incredibly easy to wear through even the longest of meetings.
Party In The Front Tank
You are the talk of the room wearing this in-your-face full-on glitter sequined tank top. Want to catch eyes? Here’s your pick. This pull-on tank features stretchy sequins on the front and coordinating polyester fabric on the back. It’s got a waist length and a slim fit and is a must-have for your night out wardrobe.
Olive Stripe Tie Tank In White
You love a white tank but don’t want it all white? Try this subtly-striped tank with a feminine side sash. It has delicate spaghetti straps and a pullover style. This is an excellent choice for a summer garden party paired with shorts, a mini-skirt, or something long and flowy. Made of a viscose/lyocell blend, this shirt is dry clean only.
Ruffled Halter Top White Tank
Banks of ruffled fabric cross their way up from the flowing bottom of this tank to the halter top closure around the neck. The flowing drape of this polyester blend top makes it easy to wear. Fabric covered buttons at the back of the neck keep the halter in place, and the sleeveless arms keep you cool on the hottest summer day.
Classic Mock Neck Tank
This mock neck tank features a fitted waistband and high necked style. Made of a polyester/rayon/spandex blend jersey fabric, it’s soft and comfortable while still looking fashionable. This a great work to after-work clothing piece for your wardrobe as you can layer it under a jacket then wear it on its own at the end of the day. The draping neckline is a lovely detail as well. It is machine-washable, but you’ll do best to hang it dry, so it retains its shape.
