The best party and going out tops for women

Wherever the party ends up being this Christmas – out-out or in the comfort of our own homes – we need no excuse to dress up for the festive season in all the most sparkly, glitzy clothes we can find. Party tops – aka the type of top you can just throw on with jeans, trousers or skirts and immediately look ready to celebrate – are high on our agenda this year.

From all-over sequin tops to flattering halternecks and printed blouses, there’s a whole host of party-ready tops to choose from on the high street this season. The ‘jeans and a nice top’ combination is a style classic that’s never gone away, and given that it works just as well for a Zoom shindig as a real-life get together, we can see why it’s still going strong in 2021.

Whatever your budget, we’ve got the going out top to suit you – the only question is, can you really just stop at one?!
