Five Cool Tops To Wear With Jeans Under $30

The “jeans and a nice top” mantra is a surefire vibe. But in many cases, finding tops to wear that are versatile and ultimately worth buying can be a tricky mission. Here are five fashion-forward tops with style potential galore.

1. The revival of the 70s

Dresses.ie is making waves this summer, especially thanks to its collaboration with Dubliner Influencer and It-girl Charleen Murphy. Even outside of Charleen’s best-selling Gen Z collection, there are plenty of options for casual luxury.

If you’re looking to emulate Topshop’s retro vibes and have an ethereal bohemian feel, this £29.99 top will seal the deal. A retro revival is here, so go for fluidity in your sleeves, contrasting tangy florals, a milkmaid aesthetic and make sure your cut radiates summery chic.

I would recommend styling this top with high waisted white mom jeans and gold strappy heels and accessories for high glam. Slip on a peekaboo lace bra or a melange camisole if you want to visibly frame your bust. It is available in size SL and you can buy it online here.

2. Back to basics

When it comes to the basics, the devil really is in the details. It can be the most minimalist elements that make or break an outfit. This black v-neck tank top has an ingenious silhouette that emphasizes expectation with a slight peplum feature on the hips.

It’s understated but effective, it can work for two reasons, if you want something that embodies fit and flare to avoid swaddling your shape, or also if you’re more square or inverted triangle shaped and you’re looking for something like this ruched side split hem that does you justice! It is available in sizes XS-L. The large is realistic on a UK12.

It has a V-neck front and back, adjustable straps, it is partially lined and hand washable. In terms of style, it would look fantastic with Freddy high waisted skinny leather pants. Or, if you wanted to opt for cropped straight leg printed jeans in a pop color, you’d be a winner too! You can buy it online for €17 here.

3. Violet mist

This purple polka dot peplum top is so feminine and elegant. From the detail of the sleeves to the neckline, it combines class and sexy effortlessly.

With both day and night potential, it would be a welcome addition to your wardrobe that could be mixed and matched with your existing wardrobe. I like it styled with pale denim, it keeps the look soft and fresh.

It would also look great paired with pale ripped denim in a flare style to update the look. It has a concealed zipper on the left side, a peplum-style hem and frames the arms with a fitted puff sleeve. It costs €29, is available in sizes 8 to 12 and you can buy it online here.
