There's no question about it: In 2021, the concept of "going out" is a foreign one -- at least, in the way the world once did. But now that vaccines are available to everyone, it's likely that you're itching to put a sartorial spark back into your wardrobe and add in some "post-pandemic" going out looks. 

By now, outdoor dining and al fresco get-togethers are nothing new. Summer gives you a virtually endless number of opportunities to showcase your latest closet additions -- including going out tops and other fashion pieces that were truly meant to be seen. 

Look, we get it: After spending month after month in your most comfortable staples, you're ready to get dressed like never before. But if you're not quite sure what types of going out tops you want to sport, we're here to help. Perhaps you're on the hunt for some stunning pieces to mix and match with your everyday pieces for an impromptu date night outfit. Or, maybe you're getting dressed to actually go out -- but going out is actually a small party at someone's home (hey, as long as it isn't yours!) -- in which case, feel free to skip the heels. Either way, there are plenty of cool options and going out fashion trends that are practically begging for a place in your collection, like the return of tube tops, '70s-inspired halter styles and sexy corsets.

Plus, check out face mask options to help protect against the Delta variant. See ET Style's top picks, including the best face masks for exercisefor kids and for double masking, along with vaccination card holderscleaning supplies and hand sanitizer.

Princess Polly is a favorite among influencers, like this cross-over, cut-out bodysuit. 


A black bodysuit is the ultimate going-out piece -- just pair with jeans and done! We love this sleeveless one-piece from Eloquii, featuring a peek-a-boo cut-out above the bust. Use the code YESPLEASE to get 50% off. 


This one-shoulder fitted top from Cotton On is a going-out wardrobe staple. 


If you're going out during daytime, this Missguided shirred top is perfect. We love the romantic organza sleeves! 


This chocolate-colored Showpo top is business in the front and party in the back.


We love the idea of pairing this with the matching skirt. That said, it'll look just as pretty with a pair of straight-leg jeans and heels.


There's no denying it, the ruffles on this top make this casual tee into so much more.


We may never get over corset tops as going out tops, and we're okay with that.


From the front, this looks like one of many going out tops, but just wait until you see the back.


Now's the perfect time to get yourself a piece from one of Instagram's favorite brands.


By now, you've probably seen this neckline everywhere. And if you're ready to take on the halter top trend, style this under-$20 top with everything from your favorite jeans to the matching shorts.

$11 AT H&M (REGULARLY $18)

For those who want a sleeveless top to wear from day to night, reach for this linen style from Madewell.


Looking for a style to add to your collection of dressy tops? This scarf-inspired option from Reformation will go just as well with a pair of jeans as it will with a mini skirt and a strappy heel.


We mentioned that halter tops are one of the biggest trends for summer, right?
