If you had to wear only one dress this summer, it would be this one!
Simple, comfortable, chic: the tank dress is our go-to for summer.
The dress to have this summer? First seen on the Spring/Summer 2022 runway shows, the tank dress has a classic
silhouette that suits every body type. True star of this season, we can say, it pleases everyone.
Trend of the catwalks
Jonathan Anderson is probably the one to thank for the return of the trend this season. It was first at Loewe
that he presented dresses with the same neckline as a classic tank top (which is a great novelty for the brand).
Jonathan Anderson’s version, however, is far from the humble wardrobe basic. The fourth look in the Spring/Summer
2022 collection, a colorful bodycon dress called the Blur Dress, quickly became a must-have piece, regardless
of price, thanks to Kendall Jenner. The looks that followed experimented with the same shape, but distorted
with gold bibs and other sculptural inserts.

It all starts with…
Long before the surreal style of Loewe dresses hit the runway, Princess Diana started the tank top trend. Of all
those she could launch, this one remains one of the best. From baroque Versace dresses with a Medusa pattern to
short Catherine Walker dresses, both carefully selected by her personal stylist Anna Harvey, are still “among her
best looks to date” she told British Vogue in 1997. The tank dress was her most fashionable secret weapon.
“Whether they are mini or maxi, dresses are still the most elegant, so they are an unstoppable fashion asset: simple,
chic and comfortable.
British Vogue’s commerce director, Naomi Smart is an early fan. “Tank dresses are my go-to outfit,” she says. “I
love it when a dress is form-fitting and follows the curves of the body, as if to embrace them. Whether they’re
minis or maxis, dresses are still the most elegant thing out there, so they’re an unstoppable fashion asset: simple,
chic and comfortable.” View more Trendy dresses: 20 pretty brands to know
From the perfect little black dress to the knit dress you can snuggle up in during the winter and the crochet summer
dress… Vogue takes stock.

The British Vogue team swears by Wardrobe.NYC’s basics, and this season, expect to stock their version of the ribbed
cotton jersey dress, available as a mini or midi dress, that almost looks like an XXL tank top. Hailey Bieber and
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are actually two happy owners of these minimalist fashion must-haves.
