Name a more iconic duo.
"What are you wearing tonight?" "Not sure, probs jeans and a nice top?"
So goes every Whatsapp group chat between friends every night out. It's the not-so-secret outfit formula that has been uttered across WhatsApp groups, Facebook groups and group chats, for years: jeans and a nice top. It's the gift that keeps on giving, it's an outfit that knows no bounds, and the reasons it's so prolific is that it's versatile, easy and dependable.
And yet as winter creeps in and it's time for us to break out our old favourites and stock up on a few new ones, too - we're short-sighted. We load up on our partywear, black leather boots, woolly knits and other obvious must-haves, entirely neglecting corners of our wardrobes that are dependable for our everyday lives.
Nice tops, going-out-tops, GOTs - whatever you call them, often go overlooked, leaving us with a closet full of day-to-day clothes, but nothing to wear on our next night out.
No longer. We're done loading up on sequin party dresses, winter boots and faux fur coats (Okay, we're not done-done but we are willing to take a break for a hot minute). It's time for us, and you to right our mutual sartorial wrong with these winter going out tops.
