A Fun Twist on Every Girl’s Go-To Black Top and Jeans Outfit

How to dress up your black top and jeans

I love seeing photos from a GNO (girl’s night out) and usually 80% of the women are in a fun take on the classic black top and jeans outfit? It’s pretty universally flattering, and there’s a million ways to mix up the look with accessories, heels, etc.

I somehow stumbled across this cut-out black top on Amazon… and who doesn’t love a good Amazon Prime purchase under $20?! I love how it’s subtly sexy without being too showy. And, this might sound silly but I actually find showing off a collarbone incredibly hot. Ha! Just me?

If you’re on a budget or just want to add a few fresh black tops to your wardrobe I noticed Amazon has so, so many good ones under $30. Plus, with social media, we can only get away with wearing the same top so many times (and it’s kinda fun to get a new top along with a book, kitchen utensil and paper towels!). 😉

Scroll down for more of this outfit, PLUS about 15 really cute Amazon black tops that would look so good with any denim — blue, white, olive green, black, you name it.

Psst: these heels are the best! They’re the Sam Edelman “hazel” and I’m slowly getting a collection of these. They’re comfortable, flattering, and go with everything… the leopard is such a fun pop, whether it’s for work or date night.

Let’s talk JEANS! These jeans are my go-to Citizens of Humanity, in the “rocket sculpt” style — so, so flattering, and I love the higher waist.

My top three denim brands: Citizens of Humanity, Good American (particularly flattering for curvier shapes), and Abercrombie (as I’ve talked about so much, and are currently 50% off!!). I know some people love American Eagle denim but I’m personally not a huge fan of the seaming on the tush pockets (with the classic exception of Levi’s) — it’s not super flattering and gives away the brand.
