Where can I find stylish V-neck knitted tank tops?

Looking for some stylish tank tops (in other words sleeveless jumpers) suitable for the office. I have got into wearing white or coloured shirts with pencil skirts or slim fit trews but don't like wearing cardis with them as it looks a bit too mumsy but want something to keep me warm as office is freezing. Where can I find some in a fine wool or cotton preferably?

Anyone...? Or do stylish ones just not exist?!

I haven't come across any yet but I like your style!!

GAP and M&S do them, not always V necked but they still look nice for work (i have massive norks too so generally favour a v neck). I wear your proposed combo a lot for work!

White stuff and fat face also sometimes do them too.

Also this style of knit here also looks nice over a long sleeve shirt so dont rule out cap sleeves. If it is a cardi like this i just leave the buttons done up and treat it as a top rather than a cardi.

Zara normally do a crew neck short sleeve knit that looks good over work shirts.

Thanks for the replies. I do that buttoned up cardi thing too but just have a hankering for a tank top as I already have a number of cardigans.

Something like this perhaps -
It is £££ though, because it's cashmere.

GAP did a great twinset last year in merino wool (and you could buy tank top and cardi separately) but I can't find it on the website this year. Perhaps they would have it in store?

Ooo, just searched "twinset" and found this
which comes in fab colours, but is also cashmere and unfortunately even more £££.

This one is a bit cheaper and is cotton and wool mix -

I have them from gap, h&m, white stuff, sainsburys tu range, and white company... I am always cold, and actually wear a cardigan over too in winter.

DS has a boden one that was handed down to us, but the wool isn't particularly soft tbh.

I had a pringle one when i worked in an office. Try oxfam site?

I used to get roundneck ones from Jigsaw, they were very silky and actually could be worn as a top or a tank top, always looked good in the office. Hopefully they'll do them again this season.

Not a huge fan of Boden for grown ups and the price is shock. Got really excited about the La Redoute one but not inspired by the colours.

Bugger, they must be sold somewhere in a range of lovely colours.

Ooh look what I've found.

Nice.... I wear these a lot. Thanks for the Woolovers site!
