Why you always have to pack a white or black tank top…

I guarantee that if any woman were to go through their drawers today they would probably find at least a dozen tank tops sitting in there. I know I have more than I care to even count…it is like a compulsion with me…I see tank tops…I buy them….Thankfully, stores like Forever 21, Target, and Old Navy sells tanks for $5 or less!!!! They really are a must have piece in your wardrobe because they can be styled numerous ways…dressed up…dressed down…for working out…for cocktails…etc The last tank top purchase trip I took (at Forever 21) made me think about how tanks should be packed in every suitcase!! They work for a beach vacation…a weekend trip to the city…or an island. You can layer them if it is cold or wear them alone if it is hot outside. They can be dressed up with accessories and take you from day to night in less than a minute. They fit perfectly in a suitcase, carry on, or duffel bag. I know that I packed a white and a black tank top right away for NYC. Here are some of my favorite ways to wear tanks on vacation.

I love wearing white and black tanks with jeans…especially distressed jeans. There is something so chic about them.

 

For the daytime I love them with a shorter skirt…

 

And for nighttime….pair it with a maxi skirt…

 

For daytime tanks and shorts are a no-brainer…

 

Adding black skinny pants or leather leggings works for a summer night out in the city…(this is an outfit I just packed)…

If it is chilly during the day, just throw a denim shirt over your tank…

If it is chilly at night, just throw a blazer over your tank…

 

Tanks are also perfect for airplane flights and long car rides when paired with joggers or leggings…

 

My new and fave trendy way to wear white tanks is to pair them up with dark green khaki pants. This combo looks awesome when you are a little sun-kissed and wear gold jewelry and tan shoes.

 

Lastly, I always pack accessories to match my tanks while I am on vacation. My favorite ones to pack are:

  1. Scarves

 

AND

2. layered gold necklaces

Here is actually a pic of me in a white tank top with 3 layered gold necklaces…
