Muscle Tanks: Flex Your Style Muscle

Ready or not, tank top season is here! One of my favorite tank styles this year is the muscle tank, perfect for flexing your style muscle. Tanks like these, equal parts feminine and masculine, offer lots of styling versatility. From tomboy chic to rocker edge to all out girly, a muscle tank can effortlessly anchor a myriad of spring and summer looks.

I’ve been eying a few muscle tanks in my favorite stores. Instead of purchasing a new top, though, I decided to transform an older tee into a muscle tank by cutting off its sleeves. Snip. Snip. Check out the results.

See the tee worn before in Casual Friday: J.Crew Bar Stripe Tee.

Not ready to alter an older tee? Here are a couple muscle tanks that I’d love to add to my wardrobe:

    Cute!! I already liked that shirt but cutting the sleeves off is really fun.

    Am I remembering right that you love Zumba? I started Zumba and Bokwa back in January. Loving every minute of it!!
