Who’d have thought 2020 would see the return of the tank top? Stylist has found seven of the best to buy and we’ll show you how to style them too

When it comes to the backbone of any fashion insider’s wardrobe, there are few staples that compare to a classic white tank top – a mainstay of the street style set at every fashion week.  

Think about the days when getting dressed feels entirely out of the realm of comprehension: a classic white tank top is the staple that simply needs to be thrown on with either your favourite pair of jeans, your go-to floral midi skirt or your ultimate two-piece boxy suit, and provides the perfect background to an outfit.

Given recent endorsements from Bella, Gigi et al, it’s unsurprising that, according to global shopping platform Lyst, searches have spiked in recent weeks for crisp and classic white tank tops. They’re the style staple that your wardrobe is crying out for. Don’t believe us? Just see for yourself.
