The Best Tops For Day Or Night


by Marie Kelly
05th Jun 2017

We all want versatility from our wardrobes, so here are four?tops for summer that will translate seamlessly from day to evening.

Traditional shirts have been deconstructed and reimagined by big-name designers as well as our favourite high-street stores. They’ve taken what used to be innocuous office wear and turned?it into high fashion. I love the playfulness of this Topshop shirt, which gives the impression of a cropped top tied over a pinstriped shirt. Smart enough for work, but chic enough for a dinner date, this is a brilliantly flexible piece.

Tie wrap poplin shirt, €46 at Topshop

The trend for boudoir dressing over the past few seasons has made camisole tops as?common on the high street as they?were in the eighties. The graphic monochrome print of this & Other Stories slip top makes it feel more sophisticated and less pretty than most. Wear over a T-shirt for day, black if you want to dilute down the sexiness of?the piece, or consider colour-blocking it with a vibrant fuchsia or cobalt blue for a fresh, modern look.

Batik slip top, €59 at & Other Stories

A simple round-neck top is given an extra dimension with a lace trim. The prettiness of the lace is balanced by the simplicity of the round-neck cut, which makes it perfect for day or night.

Double layer top with lace details, €19.95 at Zara

I love the print and asymmetric detailing of this piece from Spanish online retailer Bimba Y Lola. Wear it with a blazer and cropped pants for day, then layer it over a midi skirt for evening.

Windmill top, €145 at bimbaylola.com
