I Packed This Tank for a Fall Trip — and Now I’m Buying It in Every Color

Tank tops, it turns out, are not just for summer — they're the perfect (and packable) layering piece every suitcase needs.

I learned this the easy way on an early fall trip to New York City. I've always loved an Everlane tank; they come in quality fabrics, flattering silhouettes, and subdued colors that go with everything. So as I packed for NYC, throwing my Everlane ribbed mockneck tank into my bag was a no-brainer.

The elevated neckline on the mockneck is a little bit retro and every bit in style at the moment, but it can be suffocating for a humid East Coast summer day. For a crisp fall day, however, it's all you'll want to wear.

Its fitted, slightly cropped style makes it perfect for layering under a cardigan, a light jacket, or even a flannel. Pair it with high-waisted jeans or a maxi-skirt and add ankle boots or sneakers. Some days, I ended up removing a layer and wearing it as my only top while the sun was shining. Later in the afternoon or evening, I might throw a heavier sweater over it. Either way, my outfits were simple, and I was prepared for any change in weather. I never had to frantically run back to my hotel to change in between meetings as I have on so many other New York trips.

I have it in black and white, and ruby and oat are next on my must-have list as we get deeper into fall. I picture the ruby with a pair of dark jeans or wide-leg pants in a complementary jewel tone for dinners out with friends. The oat I'd wear to the office or on a work trip, playing up the hint of '70s vibe with a silk scarf. As for the black and white, they'll remain wardrobe staples that go with pretty much any outfit I choose to pack.

What's the Everlane Ribbed Mockneck Tank made of?

It's 97% organic cotton and 3% elastane, so machine wash it in cold water to avoid shrinkage.

How's the fit?

It's body-hugging but not too snug, and cropped but not too cropped. It's also super soft and just a little bit stretchy. To get straight to the point: Yes, it's comfy.

What do the reviewers say?

Don't just take it from me, lots of Everlane shoppers gave this purchase five stars. Here are some excerpts:

"My fav top! I own this now in four colors and wear it all the time with my way high jeans! Love the mock neck and crop look that can go from summer easily into fall."

"Classy sexy. My favorite piece ever purchased from Everlane. High neck line makes it easily dressy."

"Cute and chic. I really like this top. It feels and looks higher quality than I expected, and as a result is easy to dress up."

Things to know

This tank runs slightly big, so if that bothers you, order a size down. Also, I recommend wearing it with a racerback bra.

It is a best-seller and tends to sell out, so if you like it, grab it fast.
