Tube Dresses Are Back—Here’s How We’re Wearing Them

Want to add a fun twist to your summer wardrobe? Lucky for you, the fashion girlies have decided that tube dresses are back!

Tube dresses are essentially the longer, dressed-up version of your basic tube top – strapless, snug, and super snatching. Because of the instant popularity of these dresses for the summer, we’ve compiled a foolproof style guide for every tube dress and occasion on your mind. 

With the popularity of the SKIMS Fits Everybody dress this year, tube dresses are a natural extension of a bodycon, waist-snatching piece of clothing. Loved by tall and short girls alike, this versatile piece of clothing can be dressed up or down for everyday wear. Some women have even worn their tube dress as loungewear due to its soft knit material and incredible stretch! 

If you're in need of an instant pick-me-up, try adding a tube dress to your year-round wardrobe! Let’s look at some simple styling options that you can recreate with pieces you already own.

With a Baseball Cap 

Want to dress down your favorite tube dress for casual wear? All you need is a cute pair of sandals and a baseball cap! This sporty rendition of your basic summer outfit is perfect for game days, backyard barbeques, and summer picnics. Because, yes, dresses are for casual wear too! 

With a Button-Down Shirt

Another way to spice up a simple tube dress is with a crisp button-down top! Paired with a neutral sandal and handbag, this look gives Euro summer vibes without the high price tag. You can also add a pop of color with a bright tube dress if your vacation plans are tropical! 

With Chunky Sandals 

If you participated in the color analysis trend on social media (or simply know your colors), you probably know the impact that dressing in a made-for-you shade has on your overall glow! A tube dress is the perfect excuse to dress in one of your colors, as it dominates your entire look and will compliment your hair and skin incredibly well. 

Take influencer Lauren Loveless, for example. This green tube dress is her perfect shade, and she looks gorgeous in the color and shape of the dress. Paired with chunky sandals and simple jewelry, this outfit is ideal for vacation, date night, or any other summer plans! 

With a Blazer 

If you love the semi-professional look, pair your tube dress with a coordinating blazer and a classic heel. In cute pastel colors, this outfit is adorable for brunch with your girlfriends or a fun shopping day with your man. Add a cute handbag and purposeful jewelry to finish off your look!
