That being said, ribbed tank tops are one of the most abundant basics on the market, and it can be tricky to know what exactly sets the best tanks apart from others. Arielle Siboni, fashion director at Bloomingdale's, tells us it's all about the cut. "The shape determines how often you’ll reach for it. I love a tank with thinner straps that has a bit of stretch to it," she says. "If you’re looking for it to be a quality basic, I recommend choosing a simple silhouette that is versatile so it can be styled in a variety of ways."
Below, find 15 of the best ribbed tank tops in every style, color, and size—options for wearing year-round and in any which way.
