Tanks for the Sunny Weather.

The sun is shining and it is officially hot, hot, hot!! What else is turning up the heat? These slim and stylish tanks I found for outdoor running, workout classes and anywhere no-straps-required.

My first is a bit pricey, but for the money you get an acid-wash style that is American Apparel meets top fit gear. I found it first on the Women’s Health Pinterest board, which is worth a look (or five) because it’s stacked with cool gear as well as fit tips. Like the tank below, from NUX.


The tank comes in a variety of colors. I love the light blue!

Also, another sporty tank on the other side of the $$$ spectrum is this GoDry Tank from Old Navy. It’s under $20 and just as bright.


The website actually offers a variety of affordable active wear from yoga pants to a rainbow array of sports bras.

Another find was ATHLETA, which is also a GAP brand. They carry the best overall selection by far. I love this red tank with the ruched sides — it adds flare without subtracting function.


Although ATHLETICA is pricier than its sister company Old Navy, the tanks use better fabrics and offer more choices.

The plethora of colors, styles and cuteness offered on their site had me even more tankful than usual.


For guys this time I found a black Under Armour tank while shopping on the Finish Line website.

It’s fitted without losing its masculinity and simple enough to be thrown on with any old pair of gym shorts. Plus, it is under $25.


This tank is sold in black or white so guys can avoid heat stroke while hitting the bike trails!

For a cool layering effect shop Nike. Their main image right now shows an example of pairing a bright colored sports bra with a loser tank in a contrasting color. This definitely draws the eye as runners speed past.

Those who favor running under the radar will find super cute tops also, whether they hide or show their sports bra. There’s even a guide to fitting the right sports bra for you.

I love this tank’s side pocket and stripey design, but if stripes scare you skinny it comes in plain colors, too.


Checkout the Nike Lookbook for more fit fashion ideas.

Cute tanks are all over campus both inside and outside the gym, so beat the heat and go sleeveless today.
