Tops for Every Occasion

I like flexibility. Being flexible in your approach to life allows you to experience more, and take advantage of as many opportunities as possible. It enables you to get more out of life.

Oddly, it is an approach that even extends to my wardrobe. Like most people, I primarily buy on looks, but I am always thinking about versatility. Where possible I like to buy fashion that can be adapted and worn in many different ways. That is probably why I have so many going out tops in my wardrobe. I love them, because you can mix and match them with skirts, trousers, suits or jeans.

This year there are plenty of excellent party tops available. Here is my roundup of some of the best.

Shoulder details

Some of my favourite examples are off the shoulder tops. You can easily wear them during the day with jeans, but they are dressy enough to be paired with a skirt, and a pair of heels, for the evening.

If off the shoulder tops are not for you opt for a cut out shoulder top instead. There are some lovely lace ones available. In black, they are quite classy, but not so glamorous that you could not get away with wearing one to a barbecue.

These are just two great examples of going out tops that are versatile enough to be worn in a number of different ways.

Body tops

I also like body tops. They are perfect for wearing on holiday or for a trip to the shop on a warm day. The fact that they are sleeveless makes them perfect if you want to get a tan. In the winter, you can easily repurpose them and wear them under a blouse or shirt to help you to stay warmer.

Long tops

There are also some nice long tops available. If you buy one that is long enough, these can easily double up as a short dress that can be worn, on the beach, over your swimming costume. Their versatility makes them ideal for taking on a holiday or weekend trip. Sleeveless tunics are also ideal for this. Tunic tops with sleeves also work well as mini dresses provided they are not too short.


One of the most versatile tops out there is the Kimono. Provided you buy one that is made from a reasonably heavy material, it can double as a light jacket for a chilly evening. Yet worn with a belt it can just as easily be used as a party blouse. If you do not like the cut of Kimonos, a lightweight shrug is probably a better option. They look just as nice, but are not quite as versatile because they cannot double up as a blouse.

As you can see, tops are great for those who like to get plenty of use out of their clothes. They are a versatile clothing option and are not expensive. Therefore, they are the perfect way to treat yourself to something new.
