Welcome to Currently Trending, a special series where we highlight the products people can’t get enough of right now. Whether it’s blowing up on social media or selling nonstop on Rank & Style, this is where you'll find it.

What’s a closet without a couple of statement tops? These versatile tops require minimal effort but pack maximum impact. Dress them up or down, statement tops do all the work for you whether you pair them with jeans for a casual day out or dressier pants for a more formal event. 

Some of the best statement blouses come with eye-catching details—a puff sleeve, a bold pattern, or maybe some ruffles or embellished studs. They have an elevated look that needs less styling than your average top, making them especially great for events or when you just feel like wearing something extra special. 

With that in mind, we rounded up an edit of 20 statement-making tops you can pair with jeans, maxi skirts, shorts, and everything in between. Whether you need a floral blouse for the office or an embellished top for a date night, we've got you covered. 

Ahead, take a look at our selection of 20 statement tops, carefully chosen and approved by our product experts according to our R&S standards, and see how easy it is to transform your outfit with just a top.
