There’s no question we love a style moment from Kate Middleton. From her elegant midi dresses to her sleek blazer ensembles, we regularly keep a close eye on what the Duchess of Cambridge wears out and about and during special appearances. While regal hats and stately frocks are certainly a part of her weekly wardrobe, the duchess also knows the power of trustworthy, understated basics for more casual affairs. From her Veja white sneakers to her classic Breton sweaters, she’s regularly spotted giving these boring basics an elevated Kate Middleton touch.
One fashion staple we’ve seen her wearing on several occasions is a white tank top—not usually worn alone but most often layered under a blazer or a smart suit, like on a recent meeting with the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood. She styled a standout pale-pink pantsuit with an easy white tank top, striking the perfect balance between aspirational and relatable. She also reminded us how chic a white tank top is, so if you’re looking to update the basic top in your own wardrobe, keep scrolling as we share our absolute favorite white tank tops to get your hands on from the multibrand retailer we love to buy all our basics from: Nordstrom.
