The most talked about Prada Fall / Winter collection wasn’t a decorated coat or a jewel-colored quilted bag, but a simple white tank top with a classic Prada triangle logo on the front. (By the way, on the runway, the model Hunter Schafer who appeared in the drama “Euphoria” wore this item.)
White tank tops like sportswear aren’t just for the Prada show. Similar designs have appeared in the “Chloe” and “Bottega Veneta” shows, pairing this extremely simple item with the same simple midnight straight jeans.
It is no exaggeration to say that these basic items are gaining popularity. For example, on this year’s Academy Awards red carpet, actresses Uma Thurman and Zendaya wore refreshing white shirts instead of dresses. Simple items are rapidly becoming stylish.
These classic items are always in vogue and are called “perennials” in the industry, but the transition from daily wear to items that are worn in the spotlight is spectacular. There is. This is probably the legacy of the 2010s “Normcore” fashion, which emphasizes unpretentious and ordinary items. Or, after years of pandemics, we can think of it as a wardrobe for certainty.
“Our customers like brands they trust. Classics like’Saint Laurent’and’Saint Laurent’, said Libby Page, senior market editor at the shopping site Net-A-Porter. “Totem” and “Joseph” are popular, and when it comes to luxe basic items, “The Row” designers Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen are no match for them. “
These brands have a cult fan base, and their dressing is reminiscent of Phoebe Phyllo’s design. Cult designer Phoebe Phyllo, who pursues female-friendly minimalism, will return to the fashion industry this year. But no matter what brand of item she chooses, she needs to add her personality. “Styling is paramount to updating existing basic items. Don’t underestimate small details,” said Page.
French stylist and influencer Sylvie Muss shares how to sublimate basic items into a sophisticated look. Her Instagram is dominated by tank tops, white shirts and her favorite Levi’s 501. Mus recommends adding new colors and layers to make these items pop, but the understated style is the key. “I’m very inspired by the women who find new outfits in their few wardrobes, rather than re-style each season (in line with trends),” said Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. , A great example of this style. “
Mus also refers to the famous “packing list” published by writer Joan Didion in 1979. Composed of 10 or less items, including “2 jerseys” and “1 pullover sweater”, this capsule wardrobe is designed to provide “thought-out clothing anonymity”. Even now, more than 40 years later, it continues to convey the power of stylish simplicity.
5 selections of white tank tops
If you’re investing in one outfit this summer, choose a plain white tank top. In the fall, the range of dressing should expand even more.
Match with denim
The opening of the “Bottega Veneta” show was a simple white tank top and denim look, creating a relaxed and new mood. If you want to give it an impact, we recommend pairing it with low rise buggy denim.
Whole body white
“Acne” and “Beza” bring out the freshness by incorporating a white tank top into a full-body white look.
Layer a tailored jacket
Like Hailey Beaver and Bella Hadid, you can wear an oversized leather jacket or blazer to make your tank top look smarter. If you want more punch, choose a leather jacket.
For party specifications with a skirt
If you want to upgrade your tank top, try a skirt with sequins or a sheer dress for the look that Kaia Gerber and Hunter Schafer wore at the Prada show.
For luxe with leather pants
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley takes the white tank top to an ultra-luxury level in combination with buttery-textured leather pants.
