“1. Don’t wear a tank top
It’s unflattering for most body types, you won’t look fully dressed, and the world at large doesn’t need to see your armpit hair. So don’t do it. But if you must…
2. Consider the setting and occasion
Within sight of a body of water, with the sand between your toes? Sweating it out in at some hipster-filled music festival? At the gym? We just might give you a pass (maybe). Otherwise, keep those guns covered.
3. No visible nipples
Even if you’re in one of the above-mentioned locations, there’s no reason to wear a tank cut so liberally at the armhole as to leave your chest fully exposed to the world. This is doubly true if you’re already breaking rule no. 2.
4. No neon colors
This isn’t the ’80s. (Possible exception: time travel.)
That tank tops are not the only option when the temperature is truly through the roof. And that exposed shoulder and armpit aren’t going to keep you considerably cooler than you would be in a simple T-shirt. After all, as we’ve said before, the classic white tee never made a fashion victim of any man.
6. There are exceptions to these rules
See above example: Brando, M.
7. You are not one of them
No. Seriously. You’re not the exception. Don’t wear a tank top.”
