The tank top should be a staple of your summer wardrobe, whether you’re day drinking by the pool or knocking out an intense cardio session. We found five must-have tank tops that the internet absolutely loves, and they’re all under $50.
Vuori Strato Tank ($40)
Yoga, trail running, farmer’s market—the Strato is a technical tank built to move, thanks to its poly/spandex blend that creates a moisture-wicking, odor-fighting workout staple. But it’s so damn soft that you’ll want to wear it every day.
La Sportiva Dude ($30)
Coming from a brand like La Sportiva, which has technical chops to spare, you’d think this piece would be built for high-octane pursuits, but this 100 percent organic cotton tank is all about next-to-skin comfort. The Dude abides.
The North Face Flight Better Than Naked ($45)
Consider this your training tee without sleeves. The 100 percent poly knit incorporates TNF’s FlashDry tech to wick and dry fast and has an antimicrobial treatment to battle funk. When you’re training hard and want people to know you haven’t been skipping arm day, this is your choice.
Stoic Aloha ($18)
Island vibes. That’s what this poly-cotton tank brings to the party. You won’t want to run a marathon in it, but relaxing poolside is totally within its confines.
Under Armour Threadborne Swyft Singlet ($40)
This is as close as you can get to going shirtless while still adhering to social norms, thanks to the mesh side and back panels and super-light poly construction. The fit is tight enough to feel like a performance shirt without getting weird.
