Best Bet: Carven Draped Top


The summer sales are in full effect, making it a little easier on the wallet for those looking for last-minute holiday weekend wear. At first glance, this top from French label Carven seems basic, but the subtle draping, cap sleeve detail, and slim fit make it suitable for nights out. (Plus, the stretch-jersey fabric keeps it breathable for warmer evenings.) Extra points for the top’s bold hue, which adds a bit of patriotic spirit.
