So I have been hunting for a good grey tank for a while now. They are actually harder than you’d expect to find. Maybe it’s my strict criteria: it has to be flowy, not clingy, soft fabric and the right length, which for me means really long. I always joke that I have the body of a dachshund, but it’s kind of true — except for the short legs part. And the not being a human part. Plus, dachshunds are my spirit animal.
Back to my tank mission after that weird side story: I figured out why a good tank is hard to find — because they are typically tucked in with the basics under all of the flashy things for the season. I was just perusing Gap the other day and as always had my grey tank search on high alert. I found it right as I was about to walk out hidden on a bottom rack, as if they were not important. The thing is a grey tank (or white or black — whatever your favorite neutral is) is everything. You can layer it, wear it alone, pair it with hard to wear skirts or pants — have nothing to wear? Through a tank and a blazer over it with skinny jeans, heels and go. All of that possibility in a $24 tank. That is why I’ve searched high and low. A good basic is hard to find, my friends, so when you do find a good one buy it. You will thank me many outfits later.
And now you are all required to tell me your spirit animal. It’s only fair.
