Studio 54 glam aside, one could argue that the era of the going-out top was the Golden Age of nightlife fashion. From the vast array of tube tops hovering above low-rise jeans to the sea of Paris Hilton–inspired slinky sequin halters, the late ’90s and early 2000s were filled with fashion tops the ladies would accessorize with Cosmos and flip phones.

But in the age of Netflix binges and choosing to hang with Instagram instead of actual human beings, what does one wear when they actually decide to go out? Though we’ll always have a soft spot (and a dedicated bottom drawer) for the OG going-out top, the following 2020 nighttime outfit ideas are inspiring us to hit the town over starting another series binge on the couch. Because, yes, there will be a time when we’ll be out with friends again. Might as well start brainstorming, and shopping, now.
