The humble tank top; the versatile sleeveless staple that can so effortlessly take us from the gym to the shops, to a night out (obviously with a wash and a few styling tweaks in-between- but you get the point!). In the current climate, shopping is now a distant happy, memory and nights out are the things of dreams.
Though many of the world’s dedicated lovers of fashion might currently be feeling slightly distraught; all this time to think about and plan outfits down to the very last detail – and literally NOWHERE to go. It shouldn’t stop us at least trying, even if it is only for a 20-minute chat with the head of the department. Which, at the minute, along with (if you’re feeling particularly extra) a boozy skype night with the girls, is the only thing we have to get vaguely somewhere close to dress for.
It seems almost pointless to don an outfit head to toe when from the waist down, you are invisible to those on the other end of the video call. Plus, no matter how much you live and breathe fashion, being at home for these extended periods of time, comfort is essential.
Queue the tank top. Saving the day yet again.
It is the perfect combination of comfort and potential to be styled up or down (depending on the recipient of the video call). Along with having the ability to be paired with PJ bottoms, joggers, gym leggings… pants –(they will literally never know).
