As college students everywhere are begging for a sense of some summer weather, some girls (like me) are already planning their outfits for a night out on the town. In Champaign-Urbana, girls can be spotted everywhere wearing the CUTEST outfits. While they may look a bit chilly… a jacket can indeed ruin an entire outfit. I have been on the search to find the cutest, most affordable going-out tops that belong in every college girl’s closet. Here is a list of three of my favorites!

Edikted Eira Sheer Lace Tank Top ($35.20)

This top has officially taken over my social media feed. I swear that I am always seeing TikTok Shop Ads for this specific top from Edikted! Offered in three different colors, the black version proves to be the most classic look. I am so obsessed with the lace details that are visible throughout this top, as it gives more of a dainty look. The small black bow near the middle of the v-neck is perfect in every way! I know how obsessed everyone is with the trending coquette style. And the best part about this tank top: adjustable straps! 

Lia Lace Trim Bustier Top ($44.95)

While black summer tops are any girl’s go-to look for a night out, it is still fun to have some brightly colored tops in your rotation! This brightly colored tank top is perfect for the day-to-night transition. Offered in shades of baby blue, yellow and white, the yellow proves to be my all-time favorite! Again, I am beyond obsessed with the lace details near the cups of this tank top as it adds a subtle feminine touch. The corset look is also a style that will always grab my attention! I think this tank top from Garage is so fun and girly, it will be a definite summer purchase of mine.

Lacey Knit Tank Top ($46)

This navy knitted tank top from Edikted will scream that you are ready for summer! The ruffled hem near the bottom of the shirt adds a subtle flare, which would be perfect to pair with your go-to jean shorts. I am in love with the tie front, as I feel that this is a style that has been trending for years now (and obviously for a good reason). Again, this tank top features adjustable straps, which ensures a great fit for anyone! Girl, what are you waiting for?? You better add this to your shopping bag ASAP!

Kimchi Blue Madison Semi-Sheer Lace Blouse ($39)

Another top that follows the lace and coquette trend is this Semi-Sheer Lace Blouse from Urban Outfitters! The majority of this short-sleeved top is white, but it also includes black piping near the chest area. A small, dainty bow is also featured on this top which is an accent that I absolutely adore! If you loved the lace tank from Edikted but wanted something that showed a little less skin, I think that this top would be perfect for you! I love that the sheer lace details even translate to the back of this top. The details are just everything and more!
