H&M Patterned Satin Blouse ($25) // Limited Envelope Neck Top ($39) // Factory Lace Shirt ($55) // Bobeau Bell Sleeve Top ($48) // H&M Sleeveless Chiffon Blouse ($25)

I need a few blouses and tops to tide me over through summer.  I’m good on skirts and dresses, but tops always seem to be the thing I’m missing.  Here are a few affordable choices and some tips on how to wear them.

One. The understated animal print on this top is adorable.  I’d wear this blouse with a colored trouser.  I also wouldn’t tuck it in because the layered accent at the bottom should show.  Try these Campbell trousers in ‘dark cobalt’ with a sleek, black necklace.

Two. These envelope tops from Limited are some of my faves.  I love the neckline for those of us who weren’t graced with a large bust.  I would wear this one on casual Friday with a pair of trouser jeans and a belted cardigan, like this pretty one from Boden.

Three. Red lace is a bold choice for the office, but doable with the right separates.  For a more understated look, try a navy inverted-pleated skirt and simple jewelry.  For a bolder look, I would try this $25 scalloped-edge coral pencil skirt from JCPenney.  Try flesh-toned shoes with both looks.

Four.  The bell sleeves on this top are so much fun.  I would tuck this blouse into this extremely chic and unique Lavish skirt.  It’s pale pink with a tie waist, and will add a dramatic flair to the outfit.

Five. This sleeveless blouse with a delicate black ruffle on the collar is a classic.  I would pair it with this full, white skirt from the Dreslyn.  I would also wear a black crewneck cardigan and a pair of pearls to keep the whole look very Jackie O.

Any outfit ideas to share with the class?  Leave them in the comments!

      That’s my bad. I should have included some. I have 40hrs of externship and 30 community service hours to finish in 9 days, so I was rushing.

    Thanks, Belle! I’ve just been thinking I need a few more tops.

  4. Christine says:

    I have the H&M top and LOVE IT! It wears and washes well, looks flattering, and feels comfortable. Plenty of H&M items look their price, but this one looks more like a $60+ top.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
