The 10 'Going Out' Tops We Need This Party Seasonby | November 05, 2019
Exaggerated layers of tulle, blinding sequins, intricate brocade, and glossy lamé: these are the elements that constitute an end-of-the-year wardrobe edit. With party season upon us, we are looking to incorporate these into our existing closet with minimal investment. The best way to do this is in the way of 'going out' tops. You know, the ones that look glamourous worn to dinners and parties, and pair easily with existing separates in your wardrobe.
We searched high and low for such blouses from party-favourite labels such as Halpern and Attico among others, to create an edit with versatile party blouses. Let's give it up for flashy 'going out' party tops.
Embellished Top, Paco Rabanne
Style It: Linked chainmail is a signature of Paco Rabanne and has become synonymous with the sexy label. This all-eyes-on-me blouse featuring gold paillettes will be the centre of attention. Style yours with neutral trousers and minimalist accessories to let it shine to full its potential.
Plissé Metallic Silk-Blend Blouse. Gucci
Style It: This steroid-induced Gucci blouse is ALL drama: lissé silk-blend lamé with dramatic voluminous sleeves. Team this turquoise number with a gathered waist over tapered trousers and metallic accessories.
Layered Pleat Top. Attico
Style It: Add colour to your outfit with this multicoloured tulle top that is crafted using layers of tulle. Made by Attico, the label serving us party-perfect looks, this statement blouse is both sparkly and has drama-induced frills.
Style It: Soaked in silver sequins for abundant sparkle, this off-the-shoulder blouse by Halpern is reminiscent of nightlife in the '70s, a nod to Studio 54. Wear it for the evening with sleek tailored pants.
Pussy-Bow Sequinned Blouse, Ganni
Style It: Sequins have always been and will remain party staples, but we are drawn to this feminine blouse owing to the silhouette and the pussy bow. Smattered with shimmering embellishments, you can tuck it into a high-waisted skirt or over second-skin jeans with tall strappy sandals.
Cropped Metallic Brocade Top, Prada
Style It: This brocade top woven with yellow and gold threads is super versatile. Wear it over a shirt in the day or pair it with a pair of high-waisted bottom at night, complete with gold statement earrings. This top can also lend itself to Indianwear, so dare to pair it with your lehenga for a wedding.
One-Shoulder Sequin-Floral Velvet Top, Self Portrait
Style It: Self-portrait's high-octane aesthetic is translated in this way of this one-shouldered sequinned floral top. Featuring a plush velvet back, style this with a bright skirt and ornate heels for a maximalist eveningwear look.
Orval Floral Lamé Top, Isabel Marant
Style It: There is nothing that says party and disco more than shimmering lamé does. Both dramatic and retro-chic, this floral printed and puffed-sleeve blouse is a complete wardrobe game-changer. Team it with denim or a skirt and a necklace to go.
Ruffled Tulle Blouse, Molly Goddard
Style It: This super-sized cropped black ruffled tulle blouse from Molly Goddard features dramatic puff sleeves. Feminine and pretty, this pouffy blouse can be worn with a streamlined bottom for effect. Go easy on the accessories and pump up the shoes.
