The perfect layering piece.

Besties, I’m here today to talk to you about the high-neck tank top. The wardrobe staple is an excellent layering piece that you can style with just about anything. At the same time, though, a well-crafted design can also stand on its own (with help from a fistful of pop-y accessories, of course). The various ways you can wear one are simply endless — their versatility reigns supreme.

A favorite of many stylish celebrities — from Kendall Jenner to Rihanna to Emily Ratajkowski — these tops offer a relentlessly cool, boyish style that reads laid-back and effortless. The cut offers a bit more coverage than its V-neck or scoop-neck counterparts, while still exposing your arms and showing off some shoulder. And not to make everything about me, but as someone that deals with finicky skin (it hates me), a higher neckline can be nice when I feel like concealing my chest.

Not all are one and the same, however. Some high-neck tank tops might simply graze the collarbone while others can extend to just below the chin. With a bevy of styles on the market, they come in a huge range of different silhouettes, from boat-necks to halters to racerbacks. Read ahead to peruse our list of the best high-neck tank tops and shop whichever one strikes your fancy.
