Your girlfriend enquires about what you’re wearing to the upcoming celebrations and you respond “I’m thinking jeans and a dressy top”. How many times have you said that about your outfit plans? It’s the perfect go-to look when you want to wear your favourite pair of trusted bottoms but also know you need to elevate the rest of your clothes for a special occasion. Enter, the “going out tops”!
Whether you like a little bit of bling or a lot, we’ve made a hit list of the best going out tops available now. Because you are the Dancing Queen!
1. Peep Show
Add a light dusting of bronzer along the top of your shoulders to prove a little skin goes a long way to glam.
2. Bling Babe
We love the way embellished details reflect flattering light upon the face.
3. Sheer elegance
Pair with burgundy to pick up on the rich detailing in this exquisite top.
4. Jewel of the Night
Go for deep jewel tones when you want some winter colour.
5. Neutrals Now
Don’t forget to add a very soft pink blush on the cheeks when wearing nude tones.
6. Basic Not Boring
Pair with white denim and a citrus-coloured clutch for a fresh take.
Wear with formal black pants and strong eye makeup or dress it down with blue denim and a crisp blazer. This top is surprisingly versatile if you are willing to experiment. Go on.

8. Dark Horse
The flared sleeve and subtle sparkle make this top a standout for a variety of events.
9. Silver Sister
We’re teaming this with ponte pants, black ankle boots and a statement oversized clutch to be the best dressed (and most comfortable) at our next party.
10. Reliable Beauty
This top is elegance personified. Wear with tonal palazzo pants as a wedding guest or for a formal dinner on your next cruise. It’s the kind of top that you won’t even need to check in the mirror.
