The old-school trend is back!

If you grew up in the 2000s, you’ll likely remember the early aughts style cheat known as the “going out top” a.k.a. just grab your fave pair of jeans and choose whatever flashy (read: NSFW) top you’ve got in your closet and you’re good to go. Yes, times were once so simple. The style took on many forms—from teeny-tiny crop tops to off-shoulder or one-shoulder blouses, and even the infamous dress-over-jeans look (yikes!). Another 2000s style favorite you probably still remember is the lace tank. We’ll have to admit there came a time that lingerie-inspired outerwear was suddenly banished to the tackiest corners of the fashion orbit and could only be described as “cringey,” but as with any old-school trend, it was bound to make a comeback. Fast forward to the 2020s and it looks like the world is ready to embrace the style once again. Ready to try it?

This top from Promod gives the classic blank tank a seductive twist thanks to its soft velvety finish and lacy neckline. Wear it the way you would a regular black top—which is to say, with pretty much anything. Whether paired with casual old jeans or a fancy skirt, this top would make any look instantly more alluring.

2. Mango Flowered Lace Top (P1,495)

Lace often gets a bad rep as the “naughty” girl’s go-to style, but as this Mango tank demonstrates, the fabric can also be used to create a delicate, feminine feel on clothing. The top is perfect for weekends spent out in the sun thanks to the pretty floral pattern and bright yellow color. Plus, the barely-there lace trimmings on the neckline would instantly flatter your collarbone and cleavage area.

3. H&M Satin Top With Lace (P1,190)

The muted moss green shade on this lacy top from H&M makes us think of DC’s seductive super villain Poison Ivy—or at least a softer, more sophisticated version of Batman’s recurring not-love interest. Pair it with flowy bottoms for an elegant daytime look or with grungy leather and vampy makeup for a wild night out.

4. Forever 21 Floral Lace Trim Top (P1,400)

This lace-trim top from Forever 21 would flatter your form in all the best possible ways—the delicate trimmings on the neckline, shoulders, and bust delicately draw attention to the natural curves and contours of your body. Meanwhile, the ruched center gives the top extra structure, preventing a slouchy, shapeless silhouette despite the loose fit. Plus, the bold but mysterious wine color is always a showstopper.

In 2011, One Direction said, “You don’t know you’re beautiful [and] that’s what makes you beautiful,” and we’ve since been aspiring for that kind of effortless charm. If you feel the same way, this top from Stradivarius could help you achieve that “sexy yet totally unaware” look thanks to the top’s innocent take on lace care of the angelic white shade and dainty polka-dot pattern.

The ultra-thin spaghetti straps, midriff cut, and straight neckline on this satin Bershka top make for a piece that looks like it came straight out of the early 2000s. Rock it with straight-cut, low-waist jeans (if you dare) to go all-out early aughts.

This black lace tank from Pomelo would be suitable for any of your usual bottoms on casual days, but it would also pair well with dressier outfits thanks to the pleats all around. The vertical folds are a good contrast against the frilly lace material and they help add structure to the top, preventing that unflattering baggy silhouette.
