Today we kick off Playing Favorites, reviews for clothing and accessories that truly perform without a ludicrous price tag. It all starts with an oldie but oh-so-goodie: the Mossimo Long & Lean Tanks. Sold at Target, these cotton tank tops are winners for a myriad of reasons, but we're most impressed with how well they hold up in the wash despite the low price tag.
How much: $9
Where to get it: target.com or Target stores
These soft tank tops have the length to keep you covered. They're good for a laundry list of activities, from layering under sweaters for work or hitting the gym after. The black cover never fades (we've given it a good 50 washes at least) and the quality is comparable to tank tops that go for three times the price. Did we also mention they are available in a zillion colors? If you're worried about sizes, sit tight because the Mossimo Long & Lean Tanks are available in sizes XS-XXL, both online and in store, making them highly accessible.
After buying these tank tops for years, we decided they warranted being the first installment of Playing Favorites. This series will only feature top notch quality items that are also a great price for every budget. We're doing the dirty work so you don't have to.
