The Imara Tank by Diane von Furstenberg is unlike other tanks you'll see this fall. It has unique, unfinished cascading ruffles at the front. There's also ciffon trim and unfinished layered banding at the hem, chiffon trim, picot edge, and topstitching at the neckline and arm openings, and two inch straps. It is made from a stretchy silk and available in black and chartreuse.

We are drawn to the Alix Tank Top by Ella Moss because of the sparkly one inch straps that have a metal-mesh overlay. This tank also has a ruched scoop neck, crossover detail at the front, draping at the sides, and a peek-a-boo lining. It's available in black and soy.

Here's a fun and flashy tank top! The Twisted Top by Rebecca Taylor has twisted chiffon banding at the scoop neck and frayed chiffon ribbons at the front and back. The banding and ribbons have beads, chains, and distressed sequins on them. There is also twisted straps and a beaded chiffon overlay at the right strap. It's a head turner, so wear this one when you want all the eyes in the room on you!

At first glance, we didn't see anything special about the Chained To You Top by LaROK. But if you look closely, you'll see chain insets at the hem. They are also at the racer back. This top has pleating and draping at the back and ruching at the V-neck and straps. It is available in two colors, early winter and black diamond.

Tops with necklaces take out the guess work, which is great if you don't feel super confident with your accessory choices. The Big Stone Necklace Tank by Alice + Olivia is a scoop neck tank with gathered elastic banding at the sides, tonal topstitchign and charmeuse banding at the racer-back seam detail, and two inch straps. The necklace has oxidized chains, faceted crystals, and pearls, and it is removable.
The Black Jewled Bow Jersey by Alice + Olivia is a great top to dress up your jeans. It has a pront-set crystal bow motif on the right shoulder that will definitely get you noticed. The tank also has a scoop neck and raw edges.

Rhinestones have to be done well for the Shirt Snob to like them. We hate gaudy. The Aubin Rhinestone Tank by Velvet is a top we can definitely get behind because it's pretty and not over the top. It has two-tone rhinestones at the yoke as well as a scoop neck, rolled hem, and one inch straps. It is made from a silk and cashmere blend and available in grey and black.

The shirring throughout the Y Shirred Tank by C&C California is a great way to hide your stomach if it isn't quite as flat as you wish it were. There is banding and ruching at the V-neck, front, and back as well as ruching at the sides, and 1.5 inch straps. It's made from a supima cotton and modal blend.
