Is there a way to split up options/variants to be displayed differently?

I'm looking to split up variants to be displayed (but still be able to select) them differently. Basically, I'm making a tabbed product builder. However I can't figure out a way to split the options up to display option1 on first tab option2 on second tab and so on. The tab part I got down pretty well. I'ts the splitting of the options I can't get down.
