It is said that the first tube top was made by mistake, but women back then gave it a try and simply loved it. Since then, tops have found their way through the different fashion eras and have reached the spring summer 2012 runways with beautiful concepts.
From bandeaus to dresses, these garments were present in some of the best collections for the season. We picked a few from various fashion designers to give you ideas on how to wear them.
Here is the first proposal...
The shortest expression of tube tops are the bandeaus. Originally thought as an intimate garment is now a chic alternative for warm days.
This black one is matched with an off white long jacket, a floor-length ombre skirt and black sandals.
BAND OF OUTSIDERS
A bandeau is perfect to mix with exotic style garments like this sleeveless dress. Just pick a matching color and let the set blend all together along with your favorite sandals.
The basic idea here is long tube tops, capri pants and platform sandals. But if you want to give it a fashionistas touch, then add the embellishments to the top - hand fans - a bow finishing the belt and a maxi 'Leaning Tower of Pisa' print in your pants.
In either way you'll look fantastic!
True Sporty Style women will make tube tops their wild card for the season.
The designer put together a fedora hat, a long tube top, an ankle length skirt and a pair of tennis shoes. The whole outfit in black and white.
Enlarge the tube top, and what do you get? A beautiful basic dress that flatters 'hour glass' bodies.
In this option, the designer use strong maxi flower prints to call for the season's colors. But if petals in your earrings, bracelets and sandals are too much for you, then simply add a matching pair of high heels to your outfit and you are ready for the event.
