The Menswear and Lace Top by Free People is a flattering top with a corset-like silhouette. There's seam detail throughout, a dipped back, and grey lace at the bib. Not very menswear to us, but we still adore it!
The James Drawstring Top by Ella Moss is unique because it has a twisted cowl neck. How often do you see that in a tank top? There's also ruching at the bust and back, a drawstring tie at the waist, spaghetti straps, and stripes throughout. It's available in pine and chestnut.

If you're in a super girly mood, the Ruffle Top by Grace Sun is one to try. There's layered ruffles and darting at the bust, a single button and keyhole at the back, spaghetti straps, and a lining. It's feminine and flirty. Comes in three colors: periwinkle, pewter, and rose.

The Sprouse Top by Ella Moss is interesting because it has contrast looped straps at the back. There's also a cowl neck, banding at the bottom hem, ruching at the banding and shirring at the sides. Looks normal in the front and flirty at the back!

The ruffle trim at the scoop neck, arm openings, and back of the Scoop Neck Ruffle Shirt by Rebecca Taylor take what could be a boring tank and make it prettier. It also has a single button closure, keyhole, and smocked elastic banding at the back, is 100% silk, and comes in both black and peacock.

The Echo Stripe Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs is interesting because it has thin stripes throughout that match how the top is designed, flowing with the pleating at the front and thick pintucks at the bust. There's also a crossover V-neck, two inch pintucked straps, and an exposed zipper with a contrasting placket at the back.
Bubble tops are not for everyone, but if you can pull off this look, we like the Twisted Bubble Top at MaxStudio. There's folding and beading at the banding at the scoop neck and back, pleating at the neck, and the blouson hemline. It is 100% silk and would look great with skinny jeans.

The Alli Tank by C&C California is the perfect casual tank for your favorite pair of jeans. There's ruffled voile trim, rolled edge, and contrast banding at the scoop neck and back. Gathered elastic banding is at the empire waist, and there's a rolled edge at the bottom hem. The straps are 1/2 an inch wide. This top comes in blossom, willow, and navy.
