Heatwave, have you feeling hot and bothered? This summer has been a scorcher. One thing you certainly can’t deal with when it’s this sizzling outside is to wear a shirt with sleeves. If you do, you’ll just be asking for unbecoming pit stains to make an appearance. Why not upgrade your summer look with cool and casual tank tops for men?
When it’s super hot outside, tank tops can be a stellar way to let your body self-regulate your temperature. They come in various shapes and sizes, sure to flatter any body type. Like t-shirts, graphic tanks allow you to express your sense of style wherever you go. You may look too hot to handle, but wearing a tank can help you feel nice and cool.
When you style your tank top, it could come across as untasteful if you make any of the following mistakes.:
- Have it cut too low. You want it to hit your chest just below the clavicle.
- Show off your nipples. Leave those covered up! Choose a style that isn’t cut so narrow you may have a peekaboo moment.
- Tuck it in.
- Choose a baggy fit that falls well below your crotch.
- Forget to trim up excess hair on your chest or shoulders.
Find a well-fitting tank that hugs your body and shows off your assets. Let it hang about half an inch away from your body to prevent unseemly sweat stains. It should fall to the same length as a traditional untucked t-shirt. Remember, tank tops are a casual look – so don’t try and wear one for your best friend’s wedding. You can, however, totally rock a tank on a boat during the bachelor party. Here are five fun ways to style tank tops for men this summer!
- Hit the Gym
Throw on a casual tank for your next sweat session. Tank tops are an essential workout uniform for a reason – they allow unrestricted movement and help keep you cool while pushing your body hard. Choose a moisture-wicking tank to help keep you dry as you train for a marathon or hit your next personal weightlifting record. Pair your tank with a pair of athletic shorts, maybe some compression shorts for HIIT training, and your favorite sneakers. Even if you aren’t a pro-athlete, you’ll look like one.
- Go from Brunch to the Beach
Brunch is everyone’s favorite summer meal. Let yourself wake up late on the weekend and throw on a fun pair of board shorts and a sleek tank. If you choose a solid short, pick a patterned or graphic design on top to give the outfit some texture. Adding a tank ties the look together and allows you to go directly from brunch to the beach. You’ll look so fresh that there is no need to pack a change of clothes. Just throw on your favorite flip-flops, enjoy your breakfast burrito, and crush a few mimosas before hanging in the sun and sand. Make sure to remember your Frisby and sunscreen.
- Get Nautical
The best way to beat the summer heat is a fresh ocean breeze. Take the summer fun beyond the beach by charting a boat and taking a day trip out to sea. Throw on a chic nautical striped tank to fit the vibe. Pair this with a pair of pale blue chino shorts and Sperry’s. Add a bucket hat for a fun twist. This classic look screams New England summer. You’ll be ready to catch some fish, pop some champagne, and can expect smooth sailing.
- Festival Wear
Festivals are the perfect place to show off your sense of style. Whether you are hitting Lollapalooza, EDC, Tomorrowland, or any small fest, a tank will help you make a statement on the dance floor. Wearing a trippy graphic tank top will have you looking fresh while keeping you cool enough to dance all day long. Pair it with a pair of comfortable neutral shorts so your tank can be the star of the show. Look no further than Into the AM for a wide selection of stylish men’s tanks for festival season. They work with graphic designers to create unique images you won’t find anywhere else.
- Bachelor Party Shenanigans
Why let the ladies have all the fun? Get some quirky men’s tank tops for your bachelor party crew. Order a set with the groom’s face screen printed on the front and embarrass him at every bar you hit. Or you could pick a few of his classic drunk phrases, and all have a slightly different tank to make the groom laugh. Wear these to head to a pool party in Vegas or on a boat day at the lake. Matching tanks can be a fun way to unite your crew and get every ready for a crazy weekend of summer fun.
