This is what makes the women’s fashion industry so intriguing; it is always changing and evolving as we do. Below we have the top 3 options for you to wear your classic tube top and of course where you find the accessories you need to pull off the entire ensemble!

how to wear tube tops

The first and most basic way to utilize the tube top is to wear it on its own. One of the downfalls of the tube top is the banded top. Many women stay away from the tube top because it fits too tightly around their chest and this causes unwanted skin and fat to hang over the shirt under the arms.

This is true for absolutely any woman of any size because of the support needed to make the tube top substantial enough to wear without straps. If you can get past this downfall you can wear the tube top anywhere and look elegant as well as casual.


Tube tops today are much longer than they used to be and this is a definite benefit. The shorter tube tops did show more skin but they were also border line crop tops. Today tube tops border line tunics in length and this is what women are searching for.

why wear tube tops?

Tube tops are perfect for beach cover-ups as well. They allow you to quickly and easily cover your bathing suit and match well with any style of shorts or beach skirts as well.

As we mentioned above, some women hate the skin and fat that hangs over the top of the tube top and this may be reason alone to layer this fashion top. Cropped sweaters are at the top of the list in terms of popularity because they still allow your tube top to be seen but they provide the coverage where you need it.
