We love a good quality basic. It allows you to have fun with the remainder of your outfit and will see out season after season. But sometimes it’s nice to have something extra. A little detailing makes it feel special and takes the pressure of your accessories like Amanda here – she has played down the earrings from her usual statement styling. The ball drop earrings are still stunning and dramatic but refined, allowing the top to be the hero. We’ve pulled together five more not-so-basic black tops to see how simple pieces can be ultra-chic.
Note: we are going to have to do a statement boot feature soon. Amanda’s are always so fun! Who is keen?
Drop hem styles are flattering and add interest to an all-black look.
Layered over white: a brilliant way to make black lace super fresh.
Flowy sleeves make a plain top instantly elegant.
A sheer sleeve is glamorous and perfect for those hot formal nights!
The right cut with a touch of a frill transforms a tee into a style of its own.
