17 Going-Out Tops That You Can Actually Wear in the Winter

Michaela Bushkin

The term "going out" is quite loose when you think about it. Whether your interpretation is an elegant date night at the city's hottest new restaurant, casual drinks at a wine bar with your few closest friends, or a night of clubbing with relative strangers, the fact is you'll need a dressy top for the occasion.

These going-out tops become decidedly more complicated during winter months because your go-to combo of a silky or cropped tank top and a leather jacket just won't cut it. Instead, opt for one of these long-sleeved options that pair with your favorite skinny jeans just as well. Plus, these options won't require you to wear a coat that you'll have to carry around all night. Until the warmer months roll around, shop these 17 picks for your next night out.

Reformation Salida Top ($78)

Reformation never fails to disappoint when it comes to elevated basics. I also really like the black color this top comes in.

Alix NYC Catherine Blouse ($345)

This rich marigold color makes this blouse look extra luxe.

Wolford Katharina Pullover ($350)

Throw on an oversize black blazer for a really sexy yet polished date night look.

New Look Long Sleeve Organza Top ($24)

Any excuse for fun sleeves, am I right?

Orseund Iris Night Out Open-Back Ruched Satin Blouse ($450)

I love wearing this type of top with layered gold necklaces peeking through the cutout.

AFRM Rexy Button Front Thong Bodysuit ($78)

A case for elevated polka dots.

Business in the front, party in the back.

I personally own this nude bodysuit and can attest to how flattering it is.

I love the texture on this seemingly simple blouse.

The bustier trend will be everywhere this spring, so get ahead of it with this long-sleeved knit.

Rotate Birger Christensen Metallic Sequin Top ($190)

This would make the perfect birthday-party top.

Maisie Wilen Open-Back Printed Stretch-Jersey Bodysuit ($450)

There's a lot going on here—the tiger print, the ring adornments, and the open back—but it somehow all works.

One Clothing Button Waist V-Neck Top ($39)

Pair this with black blouse with jeans and heels for a last-minute look.

Free People Little Crush Long Sleeve ($58)

This fun mock-neck top will take you from work to drinks seamlessly.
