We witnessed the resurgence of the tube top last winter—fashion girls were revisiting the favorite top trend of their 13-year-old selves but repurposing it in adult stylings over button-downs and turtleneck knits. Come summer, the layered look has proved a bit trickier, but testing out a tube top on its own is not for the faint of heart. Leave it to Kaia Gerber to demonstrate an updated way to wear the throwback top while still appearing up-to-date and fashion-forward.
Winding down the weekend at Soho House in Malibu, Gerber paired a black tube top crop top (in a classic waffle fabrication, no less) with striped high-waisted straight-leg pants and black leather combat boots. The pants and boots infused the ensemble with a punkish vibe, illustrating a tube top's versatility if smartly styled.
Head below to see how Kaia Gerber pulls off this tricky top style.
