Fashion Fundamentals: Difference between a Tank Top, Camisole & Spaghetti

Have you been confused between a camisole, spaghetti and a tank top? All of them kind of look identical, but there are little nuances that differentiate them from each other and they even serve different purposes. Have you ever wondered what they could be? Well, here’s a guide to help you understand the difference. Steal some styling tips and pair the right garment with the right outfit.

What is a Camisole? 

Camisoles are wardrobe staples. They are usually worn as innerwear, underneath sheer tops or deep necks and can also be used as a layering item. They have spaghetti straps and are often crafted with stretchable fabrics like Lycra, cotton spandex or nylon. However, a few could be crafted with satin, which are often used as sleepwear. Some camisoles are also available with inbuilt cups called bramisoles, which allow you to ditch your bra for a day! For a casual outfit, you can pair your camisole underneath a blazer and denim jeans for an effortlessly chic look. 

What is a Spaghetti Top? 

If you’re wondering what a spaghetti top means, it is just a fancier version of a camisole. They are pretty enough to be worn as outerwear. Spaghetti tops can be paired with denim, shorts or even skirts and are mainly characterized by the dainty noodle straps. Spaghetti tops are ideal for layering; you can create a magnitude of looks by teaming them up with shrugs, jackets or blazers. This summer, when the temperatures soar, keep yourself cool and look pretty while pairing your spaghetti top with shorts. 

What is a Tank Top? 

Tank tops are sleeveless tops with racerbacks. They have different strap styles but most of them are broad. Their length could vary from waist-length to cropped. Versatile in nature, they can be worn as sportswear, innerwear or outerwear depending on the design and fabric. In summer, most women prefer wearing long armhole tank tops over sports bras for gym to keep them cool and exercise without any hassle. You can also pair them with denim shorts or skirts for a cool & casual summer look.
