I really looked hard for tops that very much don’t look like they cost under $100, and was pleased to find so many, all of which I hope you like. This blouse has so much going for it: a nice deep neckline, cool, subtle print, and satisfyingly over-long sleeves.
This origami top is not left in a lot of sizes, but I think it’s so lovely and sculptural—and looks so much more pricey than it is—that I had to include it.
Just a good, crisp, white popover for throwing on when you want to feel pulled-together.
I like how the sleeves on this blouse are kind of sweet and romantic, but the rest of the top is nicely streamlined.
This is actually made of t-shirt material, but it looks much fancier, and is definitely work-worthy.
I don’t usually dig a high-neck blouse, but this is so chic, and feminine too.
A simple flowy top for throwing on whenever.
If you like plaid shirts but aren’t so crazy about button-downs, this popover might be the answer.
This t shirt looks appealingly like a kimono.
A cozy flannel shirt with graphic black and white stripes.
I’d wear this camisole top under a blazer on a date.
I have an army green shirt exactly like this one and wear it endlessly.
Pintucks give this a put-together feel.
The ruffle neck here is nice and subtle, and I love the red.
A good blouse for layering under a V-neck sweater.
This tie-front top comes in black and army green too, but I think this so-subtle shade of pink is quite pretty.
Give me stripes any old time.
OK, the print of this blouse is on the loud side, but I think if you wore it under a blazer or sweater and only part of it was visible, it would be great.
This is the kind of top that doesn’t make the hugest statement, but goes with everything.
And finally: a brilliant, vivid green bow-sleeve top.
If you missed it last week, here is a post on colorful, happy tops to combat the winter blahs.
