Pair them with your favorite mesh leggings and chunky dad sneakers for a super on-trend look.

Here are the workout tank tops we're adding to our shopping carts right now.

The 'Skinny Bitch Collective' Is Under Fire for Using Locals as Props in Kenya Workouts

A workout program that's been dubbed one of the most "exclusive" fitness classes on the planet has the internet outraged. Skinny Bitch Collective (the name really says it all, doesn't it?) held an invite-only retreat in Kenya, and over the weekend, videos surfaced of students using native Maasai tribesmen as literal props during one of the workouts.

The Instagram account @diet_prada posted the videos and wrote: "It’s 2019 and apparently people still haven’t learned that POC/ethnic groups...

But make no mistake, girl works damn hard for that definition. She always makes the gym a priority, and don't even get us started on her diet. (There's no forgetting her legendary 10-day no carb, no sugar challenge.)
