Designer Tank Tops

As we head into warmer weather in spring and summer you will want to make sure that you have a handful of designer tank tops.  We love designer tank tops because they are almost always fashion forward and are at the forefront of trends and made of high quality fabrics which makes them last much longer than many of the less expensive versions.  Of course, you don’t have to buy something super expensive to have it be designer quality.  We love the reasonable prices of designer Collective Concepts and their great designs as an example of something that is high quality and fashion forward while also being reasonably priced.  Consider a few of our favorite examples of great, reasonable designer tank tops that are all $80 or less.

First, starting on the pricier end one of our favorites that is a statement tank top is the Solna Sleeveless by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.   Available in Haze, a smokey grey color, this top is a great piece to wear out on the weekend and is dressy enough to wear to special occasions or even to work.  Part of Velvet’s Slinky Rayon collection, the fabric on this top feels so luxurious.  Of course my favorite aspect of this top is the neckline.  With a sweeping asymmetric sash across the neckline that is gathered off center on this top for added detail which looks feminine and stylish.  Priced at $80, this tank is a great reasonably priced designer tank top that will quickly become a favorite in your closet.

As another example consider the Racerback Flared Tunic tank by Collective Concepts.  This designer tank top is reasonably priced at $55 and features a gorgeous grey rayon fabric again giving it that luxurious feel.  With beading around the shoulder straps for added detail and a gathered racerback on the back of the tank we love the dressy look of this tank top.  Again it is versatile enough to work with jeans and yet can also be dressed up to wear out to a special occasion.  We also love the Lace Trim Stripe tank by Collective concepts as a somewhat similar style, but with different details such as lace trim around the neckline and then wide contrasting stripes in either navy or red.  Also a racerback and with a looser flared fit, this tank is a great summer tank top that we love to wear.   Priced at $58 the Lace Trim Stripe Tank top is a great value for a designer tank top.

Finally, consider the Surplice V Neck Tank Top by designer Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati.  Sweet Pea is known for their great patterns and the design of their breathable nylon mesh fabric that is meant to be comfortable in warmer weather.  The Surplice V Neck Tank Top features a deep v neckline with solid purple contrast around the bust.  We love the empire waist line that adds to the femininity of this top.  Not to mention the great pattern on this top featuring a variety of different colors of blues and greens on an ivory colored fabric.

Each of these pieces feature a distinctive style, but are all great, high quality designer pieces that are stylish enough to wear for multiple seasons to ensure that you get your money’s worth.

Velvet and Zooey Designer Boatneck Tops!!

Designer Boatneck tops have a classic vintage look that I adore.  Two great examples of the perfect boatneck top that also has a modern twist or fringe are the Daree top by Velvet and the Satin Trim Boatneck by Zooey.

Velvet Daree Wide Sleeve Boatneck Top

Velvet Daree Boatneck Top

By this time of year I am usually trying to shop for tops that I could probably still wear in winter but that will also work into spring.  I love Velvet’s Daree Wide Sleeve Boatneck Top because this is exactly the kind of top that can do both.  I wear this top in Green with a long sleeve white shirt underneath it in the Winter and come Spring I can wear it alone.  My sister owns this top in the other color milk which is a beautiful ivory that looks great with a dark jean and brown boots.  Part of Velvet’s Slinky Rayon collection, the fabric drapes your body perfectly.  It is loose enough you can add a belt for a tunic look, but you can also wear it without a belt and it looks great too.

Zooey Satin Sleeve Boatneck Top

The Boatneck top with Satin Trim by Zooey is my ultimate night on the town top.  This regal looking fabric is hemp with satin detail on the sleeve.  We love the fitted look at the waist and the satin contrast on the sleeves.  The hemp fabric has an amazing softness and durability and even though it may not look like it this top is machine washable.  Available at Vintage Fringe  in a dark brown (ebony) or a rich plum (phantom).
