Opinion: The party top phenomenon

Opinion: The party top phenomenon

Editorial Director, Leah Chernikoff for Elle Magazine wrote an article on December 30th that said the unthinkable. “It’s time to retire the going-out top.”

As I read the article and pondered this strange advice, I thought to myself…if I ditch the going-out top, what do I wear? The joy of quickly buying a top for a party will disappear! This despicable thought was short lived. For college students like myself, the going-out top is the heartbeat of fun. The top is a token of procrastination and quick decisions.



The going-out top can easily become your next fashion statement but, for some that only depends on what crazy shenanigans they’ve gotten into the night of top’s big debut.

Now, if you are the type to ditch your going-out top because of sad mistakes and toss it into the abyss then, do what you must! In my opinion, those tops have memories of fun and pure recklessness. One thing that I always say is, no memory is a bad memory, it’s just another stepping stone of growth and wisdom.  So, I love my going-out top! I can easily toss it in the wash and make it a great addition to another sexy outfit.


To my friends that decide to pre-plan their going-out outfit, I salute to you. I wish you the best of luck! New year and new you right? *side eye*

To everyone else, I will faithfully purchase going- out tops, and I welcome all who join me!

Long live the going-out top!



P.S.: Sending lots of hearts to Leah and Elle Magazine. This was all written out of love! 🙂
