So, for some reason, there were like zero short sleeve tops again this year. Ok, I take that back. There were lots of t-shirts this summer and shirts with open backs and flowy, boho numbers, but your typical “work/casual” top was sort of non-existent.
You can imagine my delight when I found four, really great, versatile options over the last few weeks. Here they are (left to right):
- Lace t-shirt, J. Crew: This shirt comes in gray and white as well. I love it with jeans, but think it would look equally cute with a skirt. Also, the price point is fantastic. ($29.50)
- Wrap shirt with dots, Banana Republic: Let’s start with one of this top’s greatest assets. It’s machine washable and doesn’t wrinkle. It’s also really flattering and work appropriate. ($88.00)
- Striped tee with ruffle sleeve, J. Crew: This t-shirt is actually a really heavy weight and would work with a skirt or pair of dress pants, as easily as it would with shorts and jeans. ($49.50)
- Olive short-sleeve sweatshirt, Sincerely Jules: You may not be able to get away with a short-sleeve sweatshirt at work, but I promise, you’ll want to live in this sucker all weekend. The fabric is soft and substantial, and in case olive isn’t your color, it comes in a bunch of other shades as well. ($75.00)
