8 going-out tops for when you just want to wear 'jeans and a nice top'

If there is one outfit combination that should be taking up the bulk of your wardrobe (excluding fleecy pyjamas) it's jeans and nice tops. 

Finally convinced a babysitter to come round for the evening? Jeans and a nice top. Drinks with the girls? Jeans and a nice top. Mother-in-law's annual family get together? Jeans and a nice top.

We owe a lot to the winning combination, as without it, we'd be sobbing in our wardrobe surrounded by 2014's sweater dresses and pre-pregnancy body-con dresses. Shudder.

Here's all the best dressy tops that would look sensational with your favourite denim...
