Essentially Flattering Casual and Dressy Tops

Casual and Dressy

This month in our wardrobe essentials post, we want to call your attention to that attention-attracting detail on the latest tops. Casual and dressy tops are everywhere, and whether it’s statement sleeves, bell sleeves, cold shoulder, off the shoulder, bows, ruffles, puffed shoulders or wide cuffs, the top can be tops when it comes to making your outfit. More is definitely MORE and the devil is in the details.

The best top is one that can be used both for casual and dressy outfits – skirts, slacks, jeans. That’s why we picked this Rag & Bone top from Nordstrom for its conservative front but rock & roll back. You can wear it to work under a cute blazer – then slip off your jacket for that after work happy hour or dinner.

This one selling out fast!
