20 Stylish Ways to Wear a Tank Top This Summer
As every woman knows, tank tops are a summer essential. On their own, they may seem like a basic layering piece, but they provide the foundation for many outfits. Here at Yummie, our shapewear tank top collection is designed to be different. Our tank top styles are super soft and provide added support around your waist. Made of stretchy material that lets you breathe, they won’t compress your bust and will instead accentuate an hourglass figure.
Wondering how to wear tank tops while still being stylish? While there are endless possibilities, read on to learn some of our favorite styling tricks!
1. How to Wear a Tank Top Under a Blazer with Jeans
There’s nothing better than a classic combination that you can go back to again and again. When it comes to what to wear over tank tops, blazers are a go-to option that look chic and seamlessly transition from day to night. A blazer, tank top and jeans ensemble works for almost every occasion, from drinks with friends to the office.
2. Tuck a Cami into a High-Waisted Midi Skirt
For a more formal occasion like a wedding, try tucking a tank top style like our Smooth Solutions Cami into a high-waisted midi skirt. We love a skirt with a bit of shine and some neutral sandal heels.
3. Wear Tank Top Styles with a Mini Skirt for a Night Out
Instead of wearing a tight dress for a night out, opt for a black cami, leather mini skirt and above-the-knee flat suede boots. Keep your jewelry and makeup minimal for a sexy yet not overdone look.
4. Throw On Under a Cardigan for Work
Thinking again about what to wear over tank tops? Try styling our Lena Nylon Seamless Shaping Tank under a cardigan with a pair of pressed trousers and heels for work. This look exudes sophistication and strength, which are qualities we here at Yummie strive to reproduce in our clothing.
5. How to Wear Tank Tops with a Classic Pencil Skirt
Another simple yet timeless piece of office fashion is a cami with a pencil skirt. Slip on a blazer or cardigan and perhaps a silk scarf for a pop of color to complete the look.
6. Style Your Tanks with a Suede Skirt
Add a little texture to how you wear a tank top by pairing it with a camel or maroon suede mini skirt. Throw on a floppy hat for the ultimate cozy style statement.
7. What to Wear Over Tank Tops: A Denim Jacket
We love the ease of sliding a trendy jean jacket over one of our signature tanks. People will mainly see the jacket, but the tank provides gently smoothing underneath. Wear with a midi skirt or colored trousers for a bright summer outfit.
8. Tank Top Style Ideas with Leggings
Embrace the athleisure trend and popularity of leggings fashion by pairing our 6-in-1 Shaping Tank with gym leggings and sneakers. Whether you’re actually going to the gym or not isn’t the point—it’s that you look amazing and are comfortable all day long!
9. Go Sporty-Chic with Track Pants
Pair our Aldara Ribbed French Terry Shaping Cami with some classic track pants with a stripe down the side. Add a leather jacket to add some edge to this effortlessly cool style.
10. Pair Camis with Wide-Leg Jeans
As you consider how to wear a tank top for a summer party, try tucking our Cotton Seamless V-Neck Shaping Tank into a pair of medium wash wide-leg jeans. Carry a large structured handbag and add some brightly colored earrings for a look that’s both artistic and pulled together.
11. Wear a Dress with a Plunging Neckline Over Tank Tops
There are times when a plunging neckline is exactly what you want for a saucy occasion, and then there are times when you need just a bit more fabric to feel comfortable. Instead of buying a new dress, layer a lightweight tank top style under one with a plunging neckline. Problem solved and you still look chic!
12. Accessorize Tank Top Styles with Statement Necklaces
Spice up your camisole and jeans with a large statement necklace or multiple strands of thin gold necklaces. The camisole is simple enough that you can go all out with accessories.
13. Add a Colorful Scarf
Dress up how you wear a tank top with a beautiful printed scarf that you can tie around your neck in any fashion. The brighter, the better!
14. Cinch Your Tank with a Leather Belt
Tuck your tank top into high waisted jeans and add a large leather belt. Let the the built-in support of the tank work with the waist-cinching belt to create a stylish look.
15. How to Pair a Tank Top with a Maxi Skirt
Be sure to pack our Seamless Convertible Shaping Cami for your summer holiday because it can be worn so many different ways! Made with Outlast® temperature control fabric, this tank also keeps you cool and comfortable all summer long.
One of our favorite ways to wear a tank top is with a long, breezy maxi skirt. The tight top is perfectly balanced by the loose silhouette of the skirt.
16. Tank Top Styles That Create a Monochrome Look
Black on black is a classic combination. Why not also try a white camisole with white denim or a tan tank with flowing tan palazzo pants? Monochrome is always stylish and flattering, so whatever color you choose as you consider how to wear tank tops—stick with it!
17. Tuck into Denim Shorts
You can’t go wrong with a tank top and shorts outfit. With some barely-there sandals and a straw hat, you’re ready for vacation…or simply lounging in the backyard.
Try pairing our Seamless 2-Way Shaping Tank with a pair of classic jean shorts. It delivers comfortable, Level 2 compression in a chic design that you can wear either as a scoop or v-neck. Plus, this cami is made with Outlast® temperature control technology that regulates your body heat in the midst of the heat of summer.
18. Wear with a Voluminous Skirt
How can you wear a tank top as a beautiful alternative to a summer party dress? Just pair a white camisole with a bright blue ruffled mini skirt and espadrille wedges. Add a few glimmering gold accessories and a crossbody bag to complete the outfit.
19. Add a Belt Bag
Instead of a belt, try wrapping a cute mini belt bag around your waist. The trendy accessory allows you to be hands-free!
20. Wear Overalls Over Tank Tops
Overalls are a really fun style statement for summer and a great option when thinking of what to wear over tank tops. Wearing a cami also solves the problem of feeling a bit bare if you don’t wear anything underneath overalls. Layering a simple cami underneath, like our Seamless Convertible Shaping Cami is a minimal change that will add a lot of comfort and peace of mind.
Whether you’re lounging at home, running around town, or having a morning meeting, understanding your options for how to wear a tank top means having an excellent foundation for a stylish outfit. With the added support from your Yummie hug, don’t be afraid to mix up your wardrobe choices!
