Yesterday's Prada show confirmed something I've always known: I fucking love a good tank top.

As Kaia Gerber opened the show, the perfect white tank blessed the runway. Tight, ribbed, and with Prada's signature triangle logo sewn onto the front, it was so simple, yet so effective. The same piece made a few appearances throughout and had the perfect finale when Euphoria actress Hunter Schafer closed the show.

What I'm trying to say is that tank tops are incredibly underrated, and this is my ode to the garment.

In Loewe's Spring/Summer 2022 collection, another tank makes an appearance. This one is also tight and white, and features the label's signature anagram logo just below the neckline. On the runway, it was styled with a pair of big, blue trousers, and ever since I saw it I haven't been able to stop thinking about it.

Perhaps my affinity for the top is that it is one of the few items that I could potentially afford once the collection hits the runway because let's be real – there's no way I could buy one of the Prada bomber jackets or the Loewe chest plate dresses. Or perhaps it is because it is simple and timeless, and a great investment.

Another piece that remains "future vintage," is Marine Serre's crescent moon tank. Arriving in both black and white colorways, the tank top is once again the perfect piece to pair with anything. It works under a blazer, by itself, and with skirts, trousers, or just underwear. It is casual, yet can make an appearance at a fancy dinner, and it also is carried over season after season, and continues to be a best-seller.

Off-White™ did the tank top, too, with just "OFF" stamped at front. Simplicity is key.

There are plenty of vintage tanks out there, as well. Chanel has been making various designs and iterations for years, but when browsing for the perfect piece, it is always the plain black, white, or grey versions that sell for the highest prices.

Perhas spending money on something so simple as a tank top seems silly to some, considering you can buy the same style for approximately $10 at any fast-fashion retailer, but to me, the luxury brands have managed to perfect it. Maybe it's delusion, but I'll happily pay the price for the tiny, tiny logo.

After spending so much time at hone during the pandemic, I've felt numb when it comes to fashion, but after Prada's show yesterday and the thought of designer tank tops, part of my former self is returning. The time of the fashion tank is now!
