The tank top is a classic workout wear staple in all our closets. And why wouldn’t they be? They’re versatile, breathable, cute, and comfy. Most importantly, tank tops are great for layering and throwing on when you’re unsure about the weather changing on you while you’re out and about (hello Melbourne!). They can also function as a great sweat towel in the heat of summer…let’s be honest, we’ve all done it!
So, whether you love muscle exercise tanks, a cropped singlet, or a fan of the combo tank – buckle up as we spill the tea on our favourite workout tank tops and how to style them!
Classic Slouchy Tank – $35
You really can’t go past a ‘Classic Slouchy Tank’ for summer. Its timeless silhouette with the racerback and scoop neck goes with almost any exercise outfit, while the relaxed fit makes it both breathable and free-flowing. This is great for high-intensity workouts or training in the heat of summer as it keeps you cool and allows for ventilation. This tank will also last more than a couple of summers as it is shrink and fade resistant!
To style this summer tank top, try pairing the slouchy tank in a neutral colour with a pair of fun printed bike shorts, like our ‘Shape & Support Bike Shorts’ and matching sports bra. The sheerness of this summer tank will allow the print to peek through. You can even tie it up for a more form-fitting look. Top off the outfit with your go-to workout sneakers, a slick ponytail, a hat for sun protection, and a drink bottle (got to stay hydrated)!
No Limits Muscle Tank – $46
Our next summer tank top pick is the ‘No Limits’ muscle tank. This tank works well for higher intensity workouts and sweating it out at the gym. With the dropped armhole and rib neckline, it provides great ventilation to keep you cool all summer long. Elevate your tank with a sports bra and a pair of lightweight and breathable leggings or bike shorts. Don’t forget to bring your training gloves and protein shaker, and get ready to hit the gym in style!
Prime Cropped Active Tank – $60
Something you will live by in the summer is an active cropped tank top like our ‘Prime Active Cropped Tank’. This tank is one of our favourites due to its elegant shape, cropped design, scoop neck and straight straps. It is also made from a moisture-wicking material guaranteed to keep you cool during your summer workouts.
The cropped tank is a great piece to wear for medium to low-intensity workouts such as walking, yoga or Pilates as it is more form-fitting and can easily move with your body into different poses and moves. Cropped singlets can also be worn casually in summer to keep cool when out and about, which makes this tank such a versatile piece.
To style this singlet for your next workout, try pairing it with some black bike shorts and a bum bag. If you’re looking to wear this piece for a summer outfit, pair it with your favourite denim shirts, a bucket hat, and a linen button-up shirt. Top off the look with a cute tote bag, and get ready to rock and roll.
Streamline Active Cropped Tank Bra Combo – $70
Looking to combine form and function? A combo exercise tank top with a built-in bra is another staple you will swear by this summer, particularly if you don’t want to feel as though you are wearing a bra! This high-support tank top is a cropped length with straight straps, a scoop neck and an internal bra. It is a great option for low-intensity workouts such as walking, Pilates or yoga.
This summer cropped tank top can also be worn casually as loungewear, giving the appearance of a regular cropped singlet without the hassle of wearing a bra underneath. This singlet is moisture-wicking to keep you cool all summer long, as well as shrink and fade resistant. The exercise tank is also created with Lorna Jane’s ‘Nothing 2 See Here’ fabric which uses light-blocking interlock technology to assure maximum coverage.
To style this versatile piece for exercising in summer, pair it with a bike short, socks and a baseball-style cap. This retro-inspired outfit will give you an effortlessly sophisticated look – think Princess Diana in summer.
Alternatively, to dress the cropped combo tank top up, try wearing a denim skirt with a white pair of sneakers and your favourite bag! Top it off with some staple hoop earrings and jewellery, and you’re ready to go.
