*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
H requested a few picks for long-sleeved cocktail-appropriate tops, so here we go:
Sheer Sophistication Top – was $34.99, now $23.99
Lace is a classic, but also trending for spring and summer this year! This top is lovely from the front, and has a really fun criss-crossed lace detail in the back … which might make it challenging bra-wise. Consider layering over a simple dress if an exposed bra isn’t your thing. Available in sizes S – L. (Or check out this similar design/price top that’s sadly not on sale! Or this boxier lace top available in colors.)
Night Sky Floral Print Blouse – was $78, now $35.99
Black and white prints? Also huge for spring. And this graceful crepe blouse will pair equally well with black (in matte, shine, or even sequins) or with cool bright colors. The design even allows for a statement necklace if you want to go bold. Available in sizes XS – XL.
Calvin Klein Sequin Boat-Neck Top – was $79.50, now $39.99
Plus extra 15% off with code EASTER
As is the case with many formal tops, this guy features 3/4 sleeves. Hopefully that will pass muster, as it was one of the few colorful options I could find! Available in this blue, trendy emerald green, and classic black in sizes XS – L. Size availability varies by color. (Also see this silver sequin top with matte sleeves.)
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for long-sleeved cocktail-appropriate tops:
- ASOS – Lots of trendy tops, but also a few classic ones like this sheer drop-neck blouse. It’s look amazing with a lace pencil skirt!
- Bluefly – Some prices may be high as this is a designer discount site, but they’re offering some great sleeved options like this lace top in three colors.
- Anthropologie – Look to their selection of blouses and button-downs for long-sleeved options like this goth-glam pussybow blouse.
- And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Fancy items are donated frequently as they’re bought, worn, and then ignored for ages. Check secondhand options for long-sleeved cocktail tops. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
