When I was in elementary school, the tube top was quite popular amongst the young girls. It was just a piece of fabric that wrapped around the torso. It was the most uncomfortable thing ever. I remember seeing girls constantly pulling them up to prevent boob spillage. Thankfully my mom forbid me from wearing such tops at that age. Actually she did not allow me to wear halter tops and tops with spaghetti straps. She didn’t think it was appropriate for young girls to bare so much skin. I was not comfortable anyways because I was so flat chested and was quite embarrassed about it back then.

However, at this day and age, fashion has evolved so much. We are much smarter with shopping and styling. The internet, social media and growing number of stylists and bloggers became our source and inspiration for almost everything in life and are big influencers on our purchase decisions. I am constantly on the lookout for new trends, whether it’s fashion, technology, food or travel. It feels so great to find newness and incorporate it into our lifestyle.

So how to make a tube top your layering piece for the cooler season? Very easy actually. Think of it as a belt. Belt the tube top over your shirtdress (like how I wore it here), dresses or blouses. Belt it across your chest or across your waist. The tube top becomes your building block for innovative layering to make things more interesting, appealing and textural. Now it’s your turn.
