Yes, You Can Wear a Tank to Work (But Read This First)

We all know activewear is supremely more comfortable and more preferable than regular clothing. Wearing it to the office is becoming much more acceptable, but that is in large part due to sleek cuts and fabrics that help it go undiscovered in the workplace (thanks, designers!). Weaving activewear into your office-appropriate outfit each day will make your 9-5 more pleasant and your gym bag lighter. Some of the top styles for wearing a tank to work are listed below for your workplace comfort.

Simple and serious

For days when you’ve got a lot to accomplish and can’t be bothered being your own stylist, thank ADAY for this piece. This tank is the effortless yet put together look every working gal needs in her life. With an all-black ensemble, it’s a key part of the modern day power suit. Roll up the sleeves of your blazer and prepare to take on the day, girlBoss!

Loose and tucked

The perfect loose fitting tank for a casual day at the office looks great tucked into a high-waisted skirt and doesn’t even require something over top to look complete. This is a good one to stock up on in just about every color, and the price point makes that actually feasible. It’s a great summery tank to wear outside of the office, too.

Sophisticated high neckline

No one will question this high neckline tank, which clearly means business. Wearing this in white will really pop underneath a sleek dark blazer. The slender fit means it can be paired with work slacks, flowy skirts and jeans alike, and the cut will add a little touch of sophistication whichever way it’s worn. Add in a little silk neck scarf and you’ve just about mastered the art of wearing workout gear to work.

Soft colors

It’s easy to sneak by in soft pastels, especially in the spring. This blush-colored billowy tank looks nice with a pair of jeans and definitely doesn’t scream Pilates, which just so happens to be where it’s headed to after work. As a little bonus, this tank can be worn forwards to backwards, with each side boasting a different design, allowing for perhaps the most simple day-to-night transition.

Scuba and goldtone zips

Scuba makes this tank versatile and easy to pair with almost anything. The trendy fabric is only further enhanced by its long, gold-toned zip down the front, and the exaggerated length supports wearing office-friendly leggings for when you feel like really pushing dress code boundaries. Very stylish.
