19 cute and easy tops for under $100

I like the pretty neckline here, and the slightly faded-out blue.

And I’m a fan of the boxy shape of this snake print shirt.

This is a nice, somewhat elevated alternative to a tee.

The big patch pockets and roll-tab sleeves are nice touches here.

This crisp popover is from Universal Standard, where they’re now offering clothes in sizes 8 to 32.

The drape front shirt is so ubiquitous I’d almost call it a new classic, and the stripes are very spiff.

The inverted pleat here feels very Maria Cornejo-ish.

There’s a subtle plaid print on this cute cotton blouse that adds the just-right amount of interest.

I usually don’t go in for tie-front tops because they’re often too cropped, but the tie-front here is nice and low.

Just a very winning red floral on a flattering shape.

Polka dots get a lot more sophisticated in black and white.

This gauze top looks a lot like something by Xirena, but it’s much cheaper.

The simplest notch collar blouse for wearing under blazers.

I dig the fact that this sweet, kind of retroish print is on a pretty straightforward button-down.

I always like a floral on a black background, and this wrap top looks quite wearable.

This crisp-but-slouchy linen button down is right out of my playbook.

This shirt is so clean-lined and designer-y-looking.

Why not something in a vibrant tomato red?

I just think this would be quite flattering—with jeans, or dressed up with skinny trousers.

    I have the red floral and it’s lovely! Have been wearing it weekly.

    The black linen shirt has my name all over it. I’m kind of into the bright orangey-red, too, but I always think I look like a linebacker in that shape. And speaking of cropped, will it EVER be over?

    Would love to see your list of cotton tops. For my job I’m required to walk between our organization’s buildings (15-20 minute walks) all year round. In the summer I only wear cotton and I’m super tired of v-neck tees. Dress is casual business casual. 🙂

    These are all great alternatives to my usual summer wear of a tee&jeans. No doubt a few of these will worm their way into my closet! I’ve been seeing so many snake/python prints showing up––is it our new leopard print?

    Seeing as I wear jeans pretty much every day, I need more tops like these. Great picks !

    I went to Anthropologie today (everything is 20% off this weekend) to try on that top and it looked terrible on me. Sleeves cut me in a bad place and not flattering at all.
