How to Style Sleeveless Tops
Stay stylish and comfortable with a few tips for wearing sleeveless tops this summer. Whether you carry over plus-size spring trends with patterns or try something new for any size or shape, sleeveless tops are a versatile must-have for your warm-weather wardrobe.
Try to incorporate balance into your outfit where you can, especially with a sleeveless top. If your shirt is flowy or a statement piece, pair it with fitted or neutral bottoms. Have a bit of fun with your shorts or skirts if your sleeveless top is solid-colored or plain. Remember to tuck in your sleeveless top if your shorts feature a detailed waist, like a tie, belt or paperbag style. If you do have embellished bottoms, choose a more fitted top or one that's easy to tuck in.
Balancing an outfit is perfect for a fashionista of any shape and size, so get a variety of tops and bottoms to mix and match this season! If you're going sleeveless this summer, start with your tops, then consider what to pair with them. Get some inspiration with the variety of sleeveless tops you have to choose from.
Tank tops offer a broader strap while maintaining that stunning sleeveless look. They can be casual, perfect for running errands or hitting the gym, or feature some accents that give your tank tops a formal or fun twist. When you create outfits with plus-size tank tops or tank tops of all sizes, try some of these looks:
- Dress up your tank top look with a sleeveless shirt that features a lace hem at the bottom.
- Pair a solid-color tank top with patterned shorts to show off some personality.
- Wear an animal-print tank top with black or other neutral bottoms.
- Rock a graphic tank top and casual denim shorts for a look that's backyard-barbecue ready.
Still enjoying the spring weather? Layer plus-size spring tank tops with lightweight cardigans to take off and transition from cooler weather to warm later in the day. You can also pair your sleeveless tops with long pants to bring balance, comfort and warmth to a cool-weather outfit.
Don't forget the footwear, either! Sandals are versatile options that can go from casual to formal, just like your tank tops. If you're on the go all day, choose stylish sneakers instead for maximum comfort. And dress up with strappy heels that are the perfect pairing for your formal summer tank tops. You can then play with accessories to add your personality to your outfit or dress up particular tank tops that complement a formal look. If your tank top is more casual, accessorize with fun and functional sunglasses for the summer.
In for some hotter weather or looking for styles you can dress up for the summer? Try thin-strap tops that combine the security of a sleeve with the open vibe of a completely sleeveless top. You'll find a variety of styles beyond a simple thin-strap top if you're looking to enhance your summer outfits with a bit of personality. Find spaghetti-strap tops like these that are perfect for summer:
- A ruffled colorblock top makes a great statement with a pair of jeans.
- A ruffled solid-color top gives a similar statement look with neutral, fitted bottoms.
- A floral top is a timeless spring and summer trend that can be cute and casual or fabulous and formal with neutral bottoms.
- A solid-color top with racerback-style straps is striking and versatile, perfect with denim or dramatic white bottoms.
- A criss-cross strap top creates a subtle statement that pairs well with simple bottoms.
Carry the thin lines of a spaghetti-strap top into your footwear. Sandals and heels will go well with thin-strap tops, but if you need a bit more comfort, choose a comfortable pair of flats that help you stay on the move.
Want a bit more from your sleeveless tops? Go for embellished straps! Flowy ruffled sleeves give a boho look to your outfit while still keeping you cool, and fun ruffles add volume to your shoulders, which can help balance your silhouette. Pair the embellishments with fitted or neutral bottoms and make your top the statement of your outfit with options like these:
- A tank top with matching ruffles on the sleeves is subtle, yet fun.
- A tank top with colorful ruffles on the sleeves adds personality and fun to a summer look.
- An eyelet top with lace details on the straps is sweet.
- A tie detail on the top of your shoulders draws the eyes up with a simple embellishment.
- A ruffle over the shoulder and on the front and back of the top is a dramatic, yet cute, touch.
Embellished straps in a sleeveless top will help draw more attention to your shoulders, bust or arms, depending on where and what the detail is. You can skip accessories in these outfits if you want to show off your shoulders, or use statement shoes or earrings to help bring some balance.
You can still rock a modest look with a sleeveless top. Opt for a tank top or other sleeveless style that features a stylish high neckline to stay covered, yet cool. Sleeveless tops with high necklines can range from dramatic to simple, so get inspired and try these looks:
- Layer a long necklace over any color or pattern sleeveless top.
- Choose a top with a high neckline and lace accent to skip the accessories.
- Pull a bold accent color from a floral high-neckline top into your earrings and shoes.
- Combine styles with a high neckline and ruffled strap details.
- Try a unique high neckline with a ruched or halter-style sleeveless top.
Many high-neckline sleeveless tops are perfect for a professional outfit to keep you comfortable in the office all summer long. Pair your sleeveless top with pants and a cardigan to get a chic and work-appropriate style.
