Few menswear quandaries are as happily avoided by most as how to style a tank top. Even if you’ve thought to yourself: I wish I could wear a tank top, the likelihood is that you’ve never even attempted it.

We completely get it — it’s not an easy feat. If you’re not in perfect shape (despite our mids efforts, we’re not) then some ingenuity is needed to make it a viable summer activity. That’s why we put Highsnobiety Market Editors to the test.

They’ve come up with three easy ways for guys to style a tank top this summer. Of course, the Sopranos-approved open shirt over a tank top is in there, but also less obvious tactics like accessorizing with bold jewelry to bring new character to your looks.

Without further ado, see what our Market Editors picked out from Urban Outfitters to give your tank top journey the green light this season.

Tony Soprano, Henry Hill, and more iconic characters have made this look their signature. When it's pulled off, it's definitely the easiest route to making a tank top work for you. It also gives you the possibility of going full-tank if you're feeling it, or buttoning up if you're less confident in the look.

So you're definitely going to need a loose-fitting vest for this one, but it's another quick way to supplement your vest to make it work for you. If you're all-in on the current Y2K trend then obviously size up up up on the jersey.

Adding a piece of strong jewelry splits attention, allowing the tank top to settle into your full ensemble rather than jumping out as the big first impression.
