When it comes to fashion, no one has it better than women. The types of clothes that typically make a man look good are very narrow in variety if you know what I mean. There’s just not much to work with when it comes to mens fashion. With women however, the sky’s the limit.
One of the most popular areas of women’s apparel revolves around tops! Tops are sleeveless shirts worn by both sexes, men and women. They are cheap and plentiful on the market and most of all, they’re popular. However, for this article, let’s just concentrate on women as there is an infinitely greater breadth to the choices available.
The tank top is the number one most popular type of top for women. It is essentially a sleeveless shirt with two straps running over the shoulders. It is also immensely popular with both sexes. In fact, they are more popular among men in certain Asian countries. They wear it underneath their work clothes and it is also worn at home. The South East Asian term for mens tank top” is the “Singlet”.
The Boob Tube is British slang for the Tube Top. The term boob tube also refers to a television set in North America. They are strapless tops that do not have shoulders. Because they lack straps, they are usually made from elastic materials that cling to the chest to ensure they are properly secure. They are cheap, easy to use and are perfect during summer months or even when combined with a cardigan.
The crop top is a t-shirt that exposes the belly. Also known as the belly top and the tummy top, they are used primarily during warmer months as it exposes a lot of skin. For this reason, it is sometimes considered rather risque. Nonetheless (Or perhaps for that reason) they are popular particularly with the younger generation.
One Shoulder Tops
These are tops that leave a single shoulder exposed. The securing strap may be thin, wide or completely cover the securing shoulder. Considered much sexier than most other tops save for Halter necks, these garments are a tease to onlookers as it gives them just a glimpse of exposed skin. They are edgy, sophisticated but should never be worn too often. Save them for special occasions.
The epitome of elegance and beauty, the Halterneck has long been the favorite of Hollywood stars and recording artists alike. The halterneck is a top that has a single strap that is secured behind the neck of the wearer. While they are absolutely lovely to use for a variety of functions that are casual or formal, this style is most commonly seen in women’s swimsuits.
