Buying basic T-shirts and tank tops for summer may be simple in theory, but finding options with the just-right fit, style, and price point can be a hard conquest. Some simple tops are cute, flattering, and lightweight, but then cost about triple what we'd like to pay; others are cheaper but, well, look cheaper. Bridging this gap between what we want and what's available, Walmart-exclusive fashion line Free Assembly has tons of tops that get the balance right. And we handpicked the 10 most likely to become your go-tos all season, with our top picks starting at just $8.

While bright colors and pretty pastels are always reliable sunny-weather fashion choices, Free Assembly also has aquatic stripes, neutral bodysuits, and trendy oranges and highlighter greens so you can tackle an array of looks. You can shop for wardrobe staples, like a loose-fitting muscle tank top and a classic V-neck tee that comes in 14 colors, or opt for something with a bit of something extra, like a tank top with a twisted shoulder strap. Most of Free Assembly's styles are simple, with subtle details that elevate them from house-clothes to errands-then-lunch looks. They're also easy to wear from day-to-night by popping on a light layer, like a denim jacket or cozy cardigan.

Seeing as it's probably time to replace a few of your old and stained white shirts anyway, Free Assembly gives you all the more reason to now, with prices like $8 for a ribbed tank with a throwback 90s cut and $12 for a soft crew-neck T-shirt reviewers love.

Before summer officially arrives, shop tops featuring seasonally apt graphics, patterns, and cuts that will help keep you cool with loose fits, wide arm holes, and lightweight materials. Walmart's Free Assembly provides an affordable way to stock up on everything you'll wear on repeat this summer, and below we've gotten you started so you can look fresh and on-trend for a fraction of what people will guess you spent.
