I’m Starting to Dress Up Again, and These Going-Out Tops Are All I Want to Wear

For the better part of a year, anything sparkly, silky, or cropped was shoved to the deepest depths of my closet. After all, do you really need fancy, sparkly fabrics when your main daily destination is your couch? This month (whether it was from sheer excitement from getting my vaccine or seeing all of the Instagram girls slowly emerge in cool non-sweatpants outfits), I’ve rediscovered my love for going-out tops. After endlessly scrolling through all of my favorite shops and social media accounts, I found an exquisite batch of fancy tops you’ll definitely want to put on your radar. All of the season’s big trends are accounted for here: From saucy cutouts to floss tops and the revealing halter micro-trend, you’ll find a taste of everything the fashion set can’t stop wearing. I don’t have any imminent party plans, but just know that when the time is right, I’ll be ready. If you too can’t stop thinking about your post-lockdown fits, read ahead to check out all of the going-out tops for a stylish reemergence. Bonus: Everything is under $100.

Tis the season of the floss-tie top.

A cool brand to put on your radar.

I’ve been going gaga over this top since it first came out. 

We talked about spotting the ruched ring micro-trend, and now, as predicted, it’s one on the rise. 

If you’re looking for something effortless, here’s a winner.

Other than its colorful sweaters, the fashion-girl favorite also makes a darn good special occasion top.
