If you lived through the late nineties and earlier noughties, you are likely familiar with the term, “jeans and a nice top.” Back then, it represented the foolproof outfit formula that saw women through dates, dinners, nights out and so much more.
Though our collective fashion conscious has very much changed since then with varied outfit combinations gaining more traction, there’s something so timeless about a “nice top” that it still remains a hallmark in many women’s wardrobes. And for summer 2020, the popularity of the item does not seem to be slowing down, as already we’ve seen several fancy top trends start to emerge amongst the fashion set this season.
From embellished straps to bow-tie details, tie-front closures and open back accents, the nice tops of 2020 are decidedly feminine and thoroughly modern. Brands like Musier Paris have added pearlescent beads to dainty shoulder straps, while Free People have created intricate keyhole back details. Sir the Label and Kenzo have added bow ties as front closers or across the shoulders while Christopher Kane and others have included drawstrings as a both functional and fashionable feature. Whether you’re planning to pair yours with jeans or otherwise this season, keep scrolling for five details that help to make your nice tops feel fancy.
