Our Top 10 Lists help shoppers quickly and easily find what they need. Using an intense review and approval process (which you can learn more about here), we break down the best styles according to what consumers most commonly search for and want.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: party season. From intimate, small gatherings to all-out galas, we love any opportunity to get dolled up and indulge in a little eggnog. And while a sexy little party dress certainly gives us a confidence boost, the cooler weather and chance we’ll be around coworkers or extended family means something a little more versatile is in order. Enter: party tops.
A gorgeous blouse hanging in your closet is equivalent to having an ace up your sleeve. You can pair it with your favorite jeans, a fancy slip skirt, or even a pair of slacks. But is it just us, or is finding the right curve-friendly top for your party ensemble more difficult than choosing a gift for your pickiest family member? Don’t fret, though, because we did the hard part for you and found 10 of the best curve-friendly party tops out there.

Anthropologie Tie-Back Corset Top
THE TIE-BACK TOP

WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: Anthropologie handled this part for us—they recommend pairing this top with menswear-inspired trousers and heeled booties for an elevated look.
Venus Off The Shoulder Velvet Top
THE VELVET TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: We were waiting for something velvet to pop up in this list, and this off-the-shoulder top did not disappoint. Plus, we love the curve-complementing ruching and center seams.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: Leather pants or leggings would contrast the jewel tone of this velvet top nicely.
Old Navy Smocked Long-Sleeve V-Neck Blouse
THE SMOCKED TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: First off, the ruffled hem is perfect for twirling in. Secondly, this top expertly toes the line between femininity and comfort, which means there’s a high probability that it will be your new go-to blouse.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: If you’re in the mood for a mod-inspired look, try styling this blouse with a pencil skirt and tall boots.
Eloquii Faux Leather Wrap Top
THE FAUX LEATHER TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: What’s better than a wrap top? A wrap top made of faux leather—especially one with a waist tie that accentuates your natural shape.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: Eloquii has a few ideas for how to style this wrap top, including an A-line skirt we’re obsessed with. Add a necklace and statement earrings to make it a night out ‘fit.
Anthropologie Shimmer Puff-Sleeved Top
THE PUFF SLEEVE TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: If there’s one thing we’re firm believers in, it’s that everyone needs at least one shiny thing in their closet. And this blouse’s shine is subtle enough that you’ll want to wear it again and again.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: We’re picturing this blouse with high-waisted trousers and a wide belt.
Mare Mare Draped Puff-Sleeved Blouse
THE SILKY TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: In case you haven’t noticed yet, Anthropologie is really delivering the curve-friendly party tops. And frankly, we think this one-sleeve drape blouse is their best yet.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: This top would look lovely with a pair of bootcut black jeans (or wide-legged pants) and pointed-toe heels.
East Adeline Hailey Cowl-Neck Blouse
THE COWL-NECK TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: Is there anyone out there who doesn’t look good in a cowl neck? We don’t think so. And this blouse’s cowl neck is layered over a soft and stretchy tank for comfort, support, and coverage.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: Is there a work holiday party on your calendar? This blouse wants to be your +1, and it’s bringing a blazer with it.
CeCe Leopard Print Ruffle Sleeve Top
THE ANIMAL-PRINT TOP
WHY YOU NEED IT: A little animal print leaves a big impression, especially when paired with ruffles and a neck tie. And let us not gloss over the sheer sleeves that add a flirty touch to this blouse.
WHAT TO WEAR IT WITH: The upside of a patterned top is that it dresses up a pair of jeans, but you can also wear this one with a satin skirt and chunky boots for an edgier vibe.
