30 best tube tops and dresses that prove strapless silhouettes are back

Most of the trends that make their way to the streets, adored by celebrities and fashionistas alike, find their debut on the catwalks. From time to time, expect a new generation of tops to hit the runways, like last season’s crop tops and borrowed button-up shirts from the boys. At the FW22 collections, it was no different. This time it was all about tube collarbone baring, skintight tube tops and tube dresses. The heyday of throwback style was the late 90s and early 2000s, adorned by nearly everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker and Carolyn Bessette to Posh Spice-era Victoria Beckham. And because it’s never been so true when they say “what goes around comes around,” today’s best hit tops have been spotted on It girls like Emily Ratajkowski, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Moreover. Last weekend, Emrata wore not one but two versions of the tube top dress while out on the town.

To try out the trend for yourself, we’ve got you covered, from traditional tube tops and dresses from cult classics like Norma Kamali and Susana Monaco to Wolford’s famous fatal strapless dress. Khaite and Totême also took their own towers to the top, but higher. Dresses that are particularly reminiscent of the silhouette’s prime are also included, such as a denim tube dress from EB Denim or a white mini dress from Zara. There are colorful options from Paloma Wool, High Sport and Anna Sui and neutrals from Banana Republic and Paris Georgia. One thing is certain, the top tube of the beginning is clearly also the top tube of today.
