Sure, we love a good off-the-shoulder top for summer, but if there’s one trend we guarantee you’re going to see everywhere this season, it’s tube tops. As a ’90s and early aughts fashion favorite, this strapless top is giving us major nostalgia. So when fashion girls everywhere started wearing outfits featuring tube tops, we knew the look was officially back.
From smocked tops and ruffles to cropped bandeaus, the tube top has come back and is better than ever—and they’re more versatile than you think. If you’re not quite sure how to style them, let us get you started. We looked to our favorite It girls for the coolest ways to wear them without looking like you’ve time traveled from the past decade or two.
Whether you’re looking to wear them for a hot summer day or want to dress them up for an unexpected take on formal attire, these stylish ladies will inspire you to add an easy tube top into your summer wardrobe rotation.
For an essential summer outfit to wear on a hot day, pair a smocked tube top with a white tennis skirt or pleated shorts.
