To know the origin of tube dresses we have to return to the nineteenth century, during that time it was only used as underwear and not as trendy clothes as we know it today, in the moment it was made of materials such as cotton and silk. However, in the twentieth century during the 60s Jackie Kennedy, the wife of the president of the United States imposed the tube dress to be worn on different occasions, both for formal events and for everyday life. 

The tube dress is a tight dress that is ideal for formal and informal events, for example it can be used to attend a dinner, go for some cocktails with friends or also go to work with other garments such as blazers, cardigans and the right shoes so that you feel comfortable and add this garment to your daily routine. 

Remember that the tube dress stylizes the figure and accentuates some parts of the body such as the legs, abdomen and hips which makes it a sexy and versatile dress. Different styles of tube dress can be found: with sequins, with heart neckline, in denim, with lace, neon colors and pastel colors, also in its mini, midi and maxi versions.
