I don’t know about you, but the entire fate of my run can be determined by what I’m wearing up top.
I can hear you rolling your eyes, so hear me out! There is something to be said about the positive psychological affect of wearing something that makes you feel powerful, fast, and super fly – it’s a big confidence boost, if nothing else. Personally, I never run better than when I feel sure of myself, and usually the foremost component of my running outfit is my top.
These running tanks are new for Spring 2016, and they are going to be key in some of your best runs this season. Check out a few of our favorites.
New Balance Women’s M4M Seamless Tank – MSRP: $45.00
This. Feels. Amazing. The buttery smooth fabric feels luxurious next-to-skin, and the seamless construction ensures that you won’t get chafed by any pesky seams. A subtle engineered jacquard pattern adds a touch of style, while mesh panels in key areas allow for extra ventilation and keep this tank feeling lightweight and airy.
The North Face Women’s Better Than Naked Singlet – MSRP: $45.00
Let’s face it, running a race naked is generally frowned upon. So the next best thing is to find a lightweight tank that feels so effortless, you can almost forget it’s there. Enter, the Better Than Naked Singlet. It’s incredibly lightweight design with ultra silky soft fabric is body-mapped to provide enhanced breathability. The sleek lines of the construction add a feminine flair.
Oiselle Women’s Lux Shimmel – MSRP: $60.00
What would you do without your sports bra? Uhhh, probably not run, that’s for sure. Well, some days you need a little extra support, and this is where the Lux Shimmel comes in. The built-in shelf bra with removable cups provides added support and modesty when paired with your high-impact sports bra, and while the support of the shimmel alone may not be enough for your run, it works well independently for post-run errands or your cool-down yoga sesh after a workout.
Janji Women’s Ethiopia Patterned Tank – MSRP: $42.00
Running tank, or fashion tank? Do we really have to choose? Nope. Not with this tank. The strappy back adds a unique detail, and the vibrant pattered fabric will really pop with your gym shorts, or your favorite cut offs. You’ll enjoy this fashion statement even more knowing that in the purchase of this piece, you’re helping provide one year of clean water to a person in Ethiopia who needs it. I’m hip to that.

Lucy Women’s I Run This Tank – MSRP: $55.00
A veritable kaleidoscope of colors, this Lucy tank is not one for the timid. If you’re wearing this piece, you’re definitely not trying to blend in, but why should you?

adidas Women’s 3-Stripe Performer Tank – MSRP: $22.00
This daily training running tank top is all about value. You get all the basics you need for a quality, technical running piece, without the bells and whistles that jack up the cost. And you don’t need to sacrifice style, either, because this tank is full of it. With a flowy design with a scoopneck, and fun, striped elastic straps, you’ll feel like a million bucks.
