Going out tops

(30 Posts)

Can anyone suggest any nice tops to wear with skinny jeans and heels for nights out?
I'm looking for something that's too dressy for daytime, but not too spangly or brightly coloured.
Hoping someone can help!

I like mint velvet for this kind of thing.

I'm looking too so will be watching with interest.

Ooh thanks Mildred Mint Velvet do have some lovely things. smile

Both my go to going out tops are from mint velvet.

GeorginaWorsley Sat 15-Nov-14 17:30:44

And it is Mint Velvet from me too

Hallhuber at HoF can be good too - have nice grey chiffony top from there that's fab with black skinnies. Also like MV.

Mint Velvet for me too - hoping for a discount code soon!

So is this

Winter15 will give you 15% off at mint velvet skinny.

I don't get the mint velvet love....

But then all I have is a concession in dept store that's tiny. Nice stuff on their website if a tad overpriced.

GeorginaWorsley Sat 15-Nov-14 19:54:22

Agree it is expensive.
The code above is welcome!

Sometimes find pieces on ebay but has high resale value.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 15-Nov-14 19:55:18

MV stuff generally horribly overpriced and the quality isn't always great.

SuperFlyHigh Sat 15-Nov-14 20:04:01

Remus have you seen or tried the Jack Wills tops? Am tempted got a shop near my work.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 15-Nov-14 20:08:48

Seen but not tried. I only ever try their stuff on in the sales tbh. smile

SuperFlyHigh Sat 15-Nov-14 21:39:58

Which would be me too Remus.

To be honest the tiny selection in my local concession hasn't tempted me much at all even in the sales or they've been too large sizes left!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 15-Nov-14 21:41:59

I now possess four things from there, and must admit that I have found the quality v good (better than MV!).

LexieSinclair Sat 15-Nov-14 22:04:44

Thanks everyone - I love that first JW top Remus linked to.
Interesting about MV quality not being great - I presumed that because they weren't cheap they would be decent quality.

burnishedsilver Sat 15-Nov-14 22:10:10

They're hit and miss Lexie. Some of my favourite clothes are from there but I've returned some very disappointing items.

SuperFlyHigh Sat 15-Nov-14 22:12:54

Remus sorry my reply was re MV not jack wills!

MyVegasBaby Sat 15-Nov-14 22:13:13

Have just bought this which looks great with dark blue skinnies and heels. Dressy but in a subtle way! [[]]

Zara worth a look too - have a couple of gems from there...

mowglik Sat 15-Nov-14 23:32:23

Agree with zara and MV and also H&m are quite good too for cheaper going out tops
