To be honest, I don’t think I own any “going-out tops” anymore. But if you asked me this question five years ago, I’d reference my drawer of crop tops I heavily relied on for college parties and bar-hopping events. I used to adore my drawer of one-size-too-small crop tops — they made me feel confident, sexy, and dare I say . . . hot? These days, my tops are all encompassing; a shirt I can wear to lunch with the girls and to a cool bar at night is my speed. I’ve enjoyed it this way, or at least I thought I did until I ordered KOTN’s Offset Shoulder Top ($24, originally $48). It was a spur-of-the-moment decision, but I’m happy I picked up this asymmetrical, long-sleeve going-out top. I tried it on as soon as I received it and immediately fell in love. Its sustainably sourced Egyptian cotton was not only comfortable, but it also felt expensive. I did a little photoshoot in my living room (I may or may not have been wearing pajama bottoms) and knew I needed to wear it out immediately — like that night.
The top is sexy but not too suggestive, and I love that it’s made with nontoxic dyes, so it’s completely harmless to my health. It’s not a top that will look out of place with a pair of light-washed jeans or sneakers; in fact, that was my first thought when trying it on — it can go with practically anything (even not-pictured pajama bottoms). It’s the modern going-out top: sexy but casual, classy but cool, and something I could totally see Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber rocking in an edgy paparazzi pic. Can I get some 818 Tequila, please? All I’m saying is that I plan to wear this shirt to all of my future date nights and evening cocktail meet ups. It’s the start of my new and improved drawer of going-out tops, a drawer I’ve wholeheartedly missed.
This top’s so popular that it already sold out in most sizes — but don’t fret! You can join KOTN’s waitlist for stock updates. Plus, there are more minimalist going-out tops worth shopping for. See them all ahead.
