When we think ‘cocktail attire’ our mind immediately gravitates to ‘I must find a dress!’, so we pull out that safe little black dress that we all have in our closet. It is a perfectly sexy, carefree and easy accessorizing option… or is it? Now with the exceptional selection of tops, why not explore the other options available to us this summer? Maybe try a cute little crop top or an open back for some sass. I’ve got a superb line-up on the top 5 must wear cocktail hour tops.
This Cotton-linen denim patchwork tank is absolutely exquisite! The mini flare that accentuates the waist without too much flair. The back is just as detailed with the exposed gold zipper. Pair it with some chunky gold earrings, bangles and dark ankle pant for a more dressed up look.
This Leaf indigo print top from the The DVF spring collection is totally boho chic. DVF plays with proportions by adding the oversized billow sleeves and the simple minimal collar mixing a bold look to a classic blouse. Pair it with a white crop pant for an eye catching cocktail look.
This adorable lace camisole with the slender racerback straps has airy overlay and a chic peek-a-boo split back to die for! This is appealing at every angle and will be your new favorite piece. Pair it with some shorts, a high waist skirt or ripped jeans for a fresh, classic modern look.
A beautifully embroidered corset with sweetheart neckline that lays at the hip with a light flare. Straps for support and comfort, this top will leave you feeling absolutely glamorous. Pair it with light colored pants and some chandelier earrings a colorful wedge!
For a play on the grown-up long sleeve lace top. I chose this gorgeous piece by DVF, because it is an elegant sequin vintage inspired look that is always in fashion. Perfect for bangle stacking galore. This top is definitely a more classic approach to cocktail hour, but the nude underlay gives it a sexy modest look.
