When it comes to celebrity-loved basics, it’s tough to top this tank.

Olivia Wilde, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner are among the many celebrities who’ve styled Hanes’ White Tanks ($9 for a 5-pack) with polished and laid-back looks alike.

Wilde styled hers with faded denim and a Balenciaga blazer ($3,050) at the San Sebastián International Film Festival on Tuesday, doubling down on the look just two days later with a similar jacket-and-jeans combo in NYC.

As for other ways to wear the style staple? Don’t worry (darling), Wilde’s got us covered.

She’s made the piece a wardrobe workhorse as of late, whether pairing it with a sparkling Anita Ko bracelet ($7,250) in Venice or with white wide-leg pants at a Los Angeles screening of “Don’t Worry Darling.”

Perhaps the “Booksmart” director is taking a page out of Kourtney Kardashian’s book; the star once shared with Poosh that she purchases packs of the tanks in XS “so they are super fitted and cropped.” (Her favorites are sold in kids’ sizes, so be sure to size up if you’re looking for a looser fit.)

Most recently, the reality star brought some edge to the classic top when she styled it with cutout Courrèges trousers and a leather jacket in an Instagram photo earlier this month.

As with many styles, a love for the timeless tanks seems to run in the Kardashian-Jenner family; Kendall Jenner’s also sported both cropped and full-length versions on multiple occasions. 

But perhaps the most creative celebrity Hanes fan is Julia Fox, who added a DIY — and super skin-baring — element to the men’s-sized version of the tank ($11 for a 3-pack) in March.

“The fun thing about this is that you can really decide if you want it to be a bra, or you want it to be a crop top,” she told Instagram followers of turning her tank (in a size small) into “a cute little set” with a few simple snips.

Whomever you take inspiration from, one thing’s for sure: There are plenty of ways to to make this celebrity-approved basic, well, anything but basic.
