Here’s how you can look expensive in a plain black tank.

When living in a tropical country, your closet is basically made up of breezy basics that can beat the heat.

The black tank top in particular is a non-negotiable wardrobe essential you at least own one of.

But we’re here to tell you there’s more to the typical “tank top and jeans/shorts” casual ‘fit. You can actually look pretty polished in it, too! Ahead, we rounded up some outfit ideas that will instantly transform this classic hubadera piece into a sophisticated top.
