In recent years, I’ve become increasingly devoted to these pieces once the weather cools. Because first off, they hang so nicely. And secondly, they’re mostly thin and layer easily, and I’m all about layering once fall hits. They can be pricey, so I stuck to ones on the more affordable (if not outright cheap) end of the spectrum. I think this rich taupe shirt is pretty elegant, and if taupe isn’t your thing, it comes in a few other good colors too.
And speaking of good colors, I am of course crazy for this yellow top, which has such a comfy-looking sweatshirt-y fit.
A cheetah print in always-appealing blue and black.
The barely-there blush-hued houndstooth print here is rather unexpected and sweet.
A good mandarin collar popover with subtle stripes. Click through to see it in black, which I also like.
A stretch silk shirt made of washable silk, and super well-priced. It’s also washable.
This three quarter sleeve boatneck comes in a veritable army of colors, and is such a key basic.
I like the idea of a silk shirt in plaid; it’d be the basis of a strong menswear look, if that’s what you’re game for.
I want to order a dozen of this stretch silk tee, and layer it under everything.
This pretty round neck silk top has a nice, subtle sheen and comes in millions of colors.
I live in stand collar popovers not unlike this one, and I really like the glam gold hue here.
