Sweater tanks are fresh. I can picture some of my clients saying, “Finally! A casual top that isn’t a t-shirt or a fashion-forward blouse I don’t understand.” It is incredibly versatile and has the ability to be dressed up or down. The possibilities continue…
How To Choose The Best Sweater Tank
There are some bad sweater tanks out there. The knit can add width if you get one that is too bulky, so go for a lightweight sweater tank. I have many lightweight options for you to choose from in the Shop This Post below. If you want to be able to tuck the front into jeans, skirts, or shorts, the thinner knits are especially important. Another key component of the best sweater tanks is the length. I am all about the cropped or mid-length sweater tanks. If they’re too long the knit starts to crumple and add weight. The only exception is a long, fitted sweater tank, but this type of sweater tank can only be paired with slim, side zip pull-on pants, like these.
How To Wear A Sweater Tank
A sweater tank and jeans are buddies. Sweater tanks also look fabulous with denim shorts and cut-off shorts. For a cooler look, top off your sweater tank and cut-off shorts with this blazer. I also love to pair sweater tanks with dressy shorts. They tend to look best with a little front tuck, but most sweater tanks don’t need to be tucked in to look right. When wearing a cropped sweater tank, pair it with high-waisted jeans, shorts, or a skirt.
Lastly, make sure you have the right nude bra for a sweater tank. The wrong bra will easily poke out and about. Think slim straps and a low profile. Don’t be afraid to take up the strap of a sweater tank top at your local tailor. Many of them are too long. This will prevent your bra from showing under your armpit.
What Outerwear To Wear With A Sweater Tank
I love a scarf or shawl with a sweater tank, but my favorite outwear is a casual blazer like this linen-blend blazer by Veronica Beard. A denim jacket is also a great topper for a sweater tank. If it’s cold enough, a fabulous coat can work as well. A sweater over a sweater tank is not as yummy of a look, but it’s not a big deal.
