When it comes to fashion, our clothes say a lot about us. If you want to share your love of all things geeky this summer, then these are some of the best tanks and tees to get the job done.

When it comes to summer fashion, this is the time of year to really have fun and let your personality shine through. One way to do this is by finding some tanks and tees that let your geeky inner-light break through.

Geeky graphic tees and tank tops are certainly easy enough to find, especially during the summer when tanks and tees seem to be everywhere. However, we want to find you more than just the standard, everyday top. This summer, we want you rocking the coolest, most fashionable trends out there.

While you may want to spice up your wardrobe with some geek-loving pieces, finding just the right tank or just the right tee might seem hard to do. However, with stores like Hot Topic, Torrid, Think Geek, and more at your disposal, it has never been easier to find the perfect geeky top to rock for the summer, whether that means a different kind of material, fringe, or lace-up designs.

This cute tank top from Hot Topic is not your standard tank, as it features a flowy style that flares at the hips and a keyhole neckline complete with long tassel ties. The tank top comes in a nice shade of blue and is even said to run a bit big to add to its flowy appeal.

Printed on the tank are two Millennium Falcons that are then surrounded by bright and colorful flowers to give it an extra fun and flirty look. Plus, with this top being available in sizes from junior to plus, anyone can share their Star Wars love this summer with this tank.

Movies and TV shows are not the only things we love as geeks; there are video games, too. And while this particular tank may not be for a specific game, that doesn’t mean it is any less geeky and perfect for summer.

Thanks to Torrid’s Nintendo tank top, you can share your video game love in style. With its heart graphic around a Nintendo game controller and a split neckline with lattice detailing, this tank top is a fun and flirty summer wardrobe addition.

For the Supernatural-lovers, Torrid has a mineral wash tank top that combines your love for the Winchester brothers with a shark bite hemline. Because of its hemline alone, this top has a lot of movement and flow to it, which is great for keeping you cool this summer.

With a graphic straight out of the series, and the brother’s favorite saying front and center, everyone will know that you are a true Supernatural fan. Plus, nothing says summer more than a tank that has a faded, multi-color look to it, and this mineral wash tank has just that (while we may not clamor for the latest mineral wash jeans, this tank makes the effect look good).
