Dress Code: ‘Jeans and a Nice Top’

There are always those occasions which call for the popular dress code of ‘jeans and a nice top’ or when on a Saturday night you’re struggling to find something to wear and the entire girls WhatsApp group seems to have adopted this unofficial dress code.

While the Irish mammy has the ‘good scissors’ or the ‘good towels’  apparently we should all be in possession of the ‘nice top’. So what is this mysterious item and how can you ensure you are in possession of it?

I recently saw a tweet saying that shops should have a ‘nice top’ section in order to make these occasions easier. Although it doesn’t look like that will happen anytime soon, until then hopefully this post will help you to better navigate your way to those ‘nice tops’.

This post has been especially difficult to write as we are between seasons and most shops are still trying to get rid of the last of the sale items before bringing in the A/W ’17 collections. I am looking forward to Zara no longer looking like it has just survived an aggravated burglary.
