Bring on the nostalgia because yet another age-old trend is having a comeback this year and fashion insiders are here for it. With summer just around the corner, there are pieces in our closets that are going to have a moment that we maybe haven't heard from in a while. A current wardrobe staple that's been running wild on my Instagram feed happens to be the tube top.

Nineties-era red carpets are covered in this exquisitely simple piece. It seems like every celebrity during that era was obsessed with this one item. I'm joining in on the craze just a few decades later by shopping it now. Luckily, this is one of those trends that comes in so many shapes and styles it is pretty easy to get your hands on. Below, shop the 22 that have recently caught my eye.

Ribbed tank tops are all the rage, so why not consider ribbed tube tops an option while we're at it? This is the perfect 2022 twist on the piece.

Bustier tops and tube tops are one and the same. Lean into more structured renditions of the trend if that's your thing.

It's always leather weather when you're a fashion girl. Take your tube top to the next level by trying a leather one.
