As much as you might not think so, a tank top is a necessity for the long days on the hot beach or when a heat wave warning is in full effect. Instead of buying packs of cheaply made tanks that won't last you through mid-July, investing in a quality made tank top that can worn throughout summer and stored away or used to layer during fall and winter is the move. Think of the money you'll save in the long-run (not to mention the inspiration to hit the gym). You can either opt for a simple, solid option, or dive in to the high-fashion world, where house names are offering plenty of tanks.
