As many of you have probably already noticed, muscle tanks have been an extremely popular trend this spring and summer. At first, I was a little adamant about this trend but I must say that I’ve come to love muscle tanks because of their versatility. They are the perfect way to add a little bit of edginess and masculinity to any outfit. This week’s featured Fashionista is sporting a very feminine yet edgy look that consists of a tan cropped muscle tank from PacSun that she paired with high-waisted black shorts and a pair of black braided sandals from Old Navy. What instantly caught my attention about her outfit was the zodiac symbol design on the front of her top. That is one of the great things about muscle tanks — they can be found in a variety of lengths, colors and patterns, and that they can be styled in a multitude of ways.
If you would like to emulate this Fashionista’s look, start off by pairing a muscle tank of your choice with a pair of high-waisted shorts. Accessorize with a gold chain necklace and a pair of strappy sandals to top off the look. If you want to take this look from night to day, switch up those high-waisted shorts for a pair of skinny jeans or a bodycon skirt, and accessorize with statement jewelry and some ankle strap booties. Muscle tanks can also be worn with a denim or leather vest to make the look a bit edgier.
So if you want to purchase muscle tanks that have an edgier feel to them, PacSun and Urban Outfitters are both great places to look. On the other hand, Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe have great muscle tanks that feature a more feminine style.
