From scarf prints and heeled flip flops to baguette bags and cardigans, pieces that defined 2000s style are back with a strangely alluring bang. Another sartorial piece that defined the decade? Cute tube tops, which are also experiencing a second wind and are the ultimate breezy summer dressing staple. Pair them with denim cutoffs, wide leg trousers, a cute mini, or a floral midi — no matter how you style them they'll look effortlessly rad and will keep you feeling cool all season long.
When you hear the term tube top do images of Destiny's Child and Gwen Stefani circa No Doubt era come to mind? The strapless style was a staple on red carpets in the 2000s and ranged from sexy bandeau styles to those featuring more refined prints and structural details. Get ready to channel your favorite high school icon, because those exact same tops are back and yes, they still look ace with belly chains and low-rise jeans. Below, I rounded up 20 tube tops that you'll want to rock all summer long. From those elegant enough to wear to a summery wedding to those more fit for a night out, the selection runs the gamut.
