I like how the lace cutouts at the neckline and shoulders here add a nice little hit of bareness—without actually baring much of anything.
Last year around this time, I wrote a post about dressing for holiday parties in which I stated that the best approach regarding this type of event is to choose a really standout top and not worry so much about the rest. As a rule, nobody notices anything but what’s going on from the waist up at big parties—something I realized after attending a crowded and frenetic holiday function in a sweater dress whose sole interesting detail existed at the hem—and felt like the sartorial equivalent of the moment all the liquor runs out. So these days I adhere to what I like to call the Party in a Top philosophy. Everybody should own at least one party in a top, and you probably already do. But it never hurts to widen your array of options. I like this one because it looks like the soul of comfort, could just as easily be paired with jeans as dressy pants or a skirt, and—not least— has a sparkle component.
A black floral is always so damn sophisticated. And also just FYI: don’t let the sheerness scare you off: it’s just styled here with an especially immodest cami.
A party in a top doesn’t always have to make all that big of a statement: the sexy choker neckline here speaks volumes, quietly.
Just the kind of very easy, very feminine but not at all prissy top I live for.
