How to Layer Tank Tops

Someone asked me recently if there is any rule with layering tank tops: do they need to be the same kind so the straps match up? I thought this would be a great post topic! Layering tank tops is a great way to add interest to an outfit and also to give more coverage if the tank is made of a thin material or the straps are too skinny to cover your bra straps.

Here are a few tips:

1. Choose two tanks with different necklines and different lengths.
The shorter one goes on top so you can see the hem of the bottom one underneath, giving that trendy layered look.

2. If one tank has a pattern, the other should probably be solid — unless the scale of one pattern is so small that it reads more as a solid. Choose the one you want to showcase and wear that one on top.

3. Make sure the neckline of the bottom tank shows at least an inch over the one on top. It doesn’t have to show though; it is fine if it only shows at the hem.
