Dress up your style

Stay cool and stylish by topping off your average summer tank top with these zippy, fun accessories and fashion staples. Don't worry -- there's no need to splurge or allot extra time for putting your outfit together in the morning. Dressing up your tank top is easy with these 10 wardrobe additions.

Dress up your style


Pair black leggings with any simple tank to pump the panache into a casual look. You can also play around with funky colors and patterns. If you choose a legging style that is particularly bold, with busy patterns or neon colors, make sure the tank top is plain. This style is especially comfortable, as you can see pregnant Pink rocking the fashion above.


Turn your tank from casual to sophisticated with almost any skirt style. Skirts of any length will complete this look, but one that comes just above the knee is sweet for summer. A long, pencil skirt like the one stylish Katy Perry is wearing above, makes for a great work appropraite outfit.


No matter the color, big hoop earrings, chunky bracelets and dangly necklaces will glam up your tank for simple summer style. You can go a bit gaudy and still look hot because the plain tank helps tone down the look. Jewelry of all shapes and sizes are going to be great wardrobe additions for you this season. Do'nt be afraid to decorate yourself with bright and colorful accessories while sporting a simple shirt.
