Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

An essential building block to any wardrobe, few pieces are as versatile as a tank top. Worn alone or under a blazer, hiding under a tee or tucked into a skirt, a tank top can be worked into just about any look. Simple yet effective, it can be a layering piece or shine all on its own. But unlike other essential pieces, you need more than one tank top—not because you can't wear the same tank with everything, but because you need a backup for wash day. Here, 13 tank tops you'll be reaching for on a daily basis.
