We’ve already seen the return of mules, slip dresses, mom jeans, and cult-label resurrections (who else is dying to get a piece of vintage Tommy Hilfiger?), so it's with great pleasure that we’ve also noticed the return of ’90s layering staple—the boob tube. Or, as we prefer to call it in 2016, the strapless top. While off-the-shoulder tops have certainly ruled 2016 so far (and summer in 2015), we’ve started to see new warm-weather tops popping up. We’ve already mentioned tie-back tops as one style to keep an eye on for spring, and now the strapless top is swooping in to keep the bare-shoulders dream alive.
Once a ’90s staple—we remember Britney Spears and Mariah Carey wearing theirs with low-slung jeans—today, it’s had an upgrade. Wear it back with sweeping midi skirts, sleek trousers, and wide leg pants. Keep scrolling for six perfect outfit ideas and shop a style for yourself.

Sara Donaldson wears a cropped version of the trend—perfect for layering under a mesh top.
Annie Georgia Greenberg is exactly how we want to dress for spring. Exposed shoulders, bright colours, and a straw bag (that will never leave our side).
Bella Hadid might be one of the few people who can pull this look off so easily, but we're definitely going to give it our best shot. A cropped strapless top, high-waist pants, and a denim jacket (worn draped off one shoulder, of course).
Hanna Zosimova just gave us a whole new version of what it means to do double denim. How fresh does this denim boob tube and jeans look and feel?
Can't wait until the weather warms up to try the trend? Zoë Kravitz is proving that yes you can wear this look while the weather's still cold. Just layer a jacket on top and you're good.
