No time to change before heading out? Simply slip on one of these great tops for an instant evening-ready look.

When time is short, how do you transform your daytime look into an evening-ready ensemble? Enter a time-honoured failsafe: the going out top. 

The Stylist fashion team has searched the top sites to find the “nice” tops that’ll make you look like you’ve made an effort for after-work cocktails, but not too much. You know the ones – from a sequin cami to a simple satin blouse.

Designers have been focusing on puff sleeve styles – with Rixo opting for a sweetheart neckline that’s flattering on everyone and Attico going for a zebra print off-the-shoulder number. Then there’s Galvan’s glittering sequinned camisole top that’ll work with skinny jeans, and Zara’s under-£30 statement-making top that will look so good with wide-legged jeans.

Whether you love to stand-out in tulle or are looking for a fresh take on florals, we’ve found the most stylish tops to wear with your jeans for an instant evening look that’ll look like you’ve spent hours putting it together.
