Statement Tops That Upgrade Your Outfit
You made plans to go out this Saturday night. Now, you could get dressed to the nines with an entirely new outfit from head to tassel-sandal-clad toe. Or, you could put on a fabulous statement top that will collect compliments all on its own. Whether paired with jeans, trousers or a skirt—we’ll let you decide—these six styles are perfect to just throw on and go.
BILLOWING WRAP TOP
The feminine staple is getting majorly amped up. Bring on the drama to this outfit with ruffled sleeves or a one-shouldered look.
POM POM EMBELLISHMENTS
Although traditionally paired with more bohemian looks, the pom-pom is popping up on preppy, structured tops—giving them a touch of kitsch (in the very best way).
Looks like a party, feels like a night in.
Gingham is no longer reserved for Dorothy, Toto. Let the old-school print be your punch of pattern in an otherwise subdued look.
The bigger the sleeve, the bigger the impression. (Just skip during any family-style dinner parties or you’ll have a sleeve full of pasta sauce.)
What may seem to be demure (a mock turtleneck lace top) is actually a bit playful (hello, sheer paneling and subtle cutouts).
