Summary List Placement

As COVID-19 vaccination becomes a reality for more Americans, people are starting to prepare for the realities of getting a shot.

Some are scheduling a day off of work when they get the shot in case they experience side effects, and others are eagerly figuring out where they can get their vaccine cards laminated.

Meanwhile, the fashion retailer Revolve is helping people plan their vaccination outfits with a category dedicated to shirts with exposed shoulders.

Revolve’s vaccine-friendly clothing section is filled with summery sleeveless tops 

On Revolve’s website, shoppers can search items by occasion — including “night out” and “work” — and recently, the brand added the sub-category “vaccine ready” to its tops section. 

The section is filled with shirts that provide easy access to the upper arm and shoulder, making them ideal for people to wear to their vaccinations, as people receive the COVID-19 shots in their arms.

The category offers a plethora of options, including tanks and tube tops that provide shoulder access, and chic off-the-shoulder blouses.

It does not appear that the shirts were made specifically with vaccines in mind. Rather, Revolve has just grouped tops with shoulder access into a convenient category.

Tops from brands including Free People, Alice + Olivia, and Line & Dot are featured in the section, and the prices of the tops range from $38 for a tube top to $297 for a halter.

Revolve also sells face masks, so the vaccine-ready clothing category isn’t its first venture into pandemic fashion.

The vaccine-inspired shirt category has been getting attention on social media

Revolve’s “vaccine ready” section caught the attention of social-media users, notably creators on TikTok.

User @danni____cole shared a video spotlighting the section of Revolve’s website.

Some viewers praised Revolve’s new category in Dannicole’s comments, calling it a “brilliant” marketing move and saying that they had picked out their vaccination outfits with shoulder access in mind too.

In February, Twitter user @ohchrissavidge shared a photo of one of Revolve’s off-the-shoulder sweaters, saying he “might order this” for his vaccination. His tweet has almost 500,000 likes at the time of writing.

Some celebrities have worn open-shoulder styles to their vaccine appointments, too.

Dolly Parton wore a top with cut-out shoulder details when she got vaccinated at the beginning of March, and Amy Schumer recently got vaccinated in a sequined party dress with a hole in the upper arm.

Representatives for Revolve did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
