Pocket Stylist: 8 Cool Ways To Wear A Basic Tank

So the Zara sale came and hit us square in the face. As Sheefa (Fashion Blogger and Kash Girl) and I stomped around and got assaulted by clothes flying everywhere, we managed to pick out a few things we liked and headed to pay up. Of course we didn’t try anything, who would wait in those crazy lines?! So as expected, I came home and the only thing that fit me was a basic white tank I picked up. For Rs. 499, the Egyptian cotton tank was so comfortable, it felt like I was wearing nothing. Since I had to return everything else, I figured I’d make the most of my trusty tank. Here are 8 looks I came up with, and yep, I’ve been wearing the tee every alternate day to work – ask Sheefa!

P.S. I was having one of those unfortunate skin days but black and white pictures were my saviours and since my tank is white, the filter made sense… I hope you like them :)

1. Sporty spice

I’ll start with the easiest. Don’t have anything to wear, throw on your tank, a denim skirt or shorts and tie a shirt around your waist. It’s stylish and practically everyone is loving some sports inspiration these days. Don’t forget your Keds!

2. The lazy girl

Dungarees should be your go-to piece when you’re having one of those lazy days. Just pop one of the shoulders to add some ‘cool’ and minus some ‘nerd’ :P

3. The sexy slit

Well actually, all slits don’t have to be sexy. Take my ONLY skirt (got that on sale too!) for example. The first time I wore this was to work – no jokes!

4. White out

Sometimes, all you need is some white on white. I paired my tank with a skirt and threw on some bling in the form of my gold jacket. Like the dungarees, let one sleeve fall off your shoulder. No, I don’t walk around with a fan!

5. Hipster vibes

For a comfy day, make palazzo pants your best friends. Tie up your white tank in a knot (Kim Kardashian style) and let that litter sliver of skin show – because, why not?

6. High waist & high taste!

Don’t know what to wear over your high-waist skirt? Hello white tank! It’s versatile enough to be sexy but serious at the same time, see my next point.

7. Sharp & sassy

A white blazer will make your tank work appropriate in an instant. Wear it like a normal blazer or just prop it like a cape on your shoulders – it can be sharp and sassy at the same time.

8. Time to shine

Ditch the jacket post work/meeting and throw on a body chain get club ready in an instant. Your tote can be exchanged for a clutch and your basic white tank is ready to go out!

That’s 8 ways to wear a tank and I’m sure there are SO many more – it’s like a gift that keeps on giving, if there ever was one!
