Help me find a party top

I'm going to a 40th birthday party in a couple of weeks and will be seeing lots of people I haven't seen for a long while. I've lost some weight recently and want to look my best. Ideally I want to wear skinny dark black jeans and smart boots with a top of some kind. I usually opt for black but would really like something different for a change. Im a size 12, bit of a mum tum, 39. Brunette, pale skin, brown eyes. Has anyone seen anything nice?
I definitely don't want a cold shoulder top or anything with giant sleeves. No pastel colours and no florals.

Thanks milli, I like that but it seems a bit shapeless, might try it on.

Thanks white. I'm not keen on the mint velvet one but do like the blue one. It's a bit pricey though. I don't really want to spend more than £50..

I think i like the back more than the front !, are you looking for something fitted ? Longish ?

So I tried the sequin top from mint velvet today but I wasn't too keen on the green khaki colour. More suggestions please although I do like the idea of sequins!
