The ladies strutting around town just love their satin tops for work. Every morning I see one in just about every color, from short-sleeved to long, simple to super ruffled. Take your pick and pair one of these bold beauties with a black skirt or pair of slacks for a polished, yet feminine and fashionable look that easily goes from day to night. And, for an added bonus, these tops are all affordable.
Ralph Lauren makes a $560 silk blend sleeveless bow-tie top for showing off the guns you've been working on at the gym, but for those who want the look for less, try this near carbon copy from Target's Isaac Mizrahi line: the Satin Shell ($28) in black, beige, or sea blue.
Another super value is this cheery pink blouse ($29) with pin-tuck details, trendy balloon sleeves, and a low-slung belted waist.
This hot gold ruffle neck blouse by NY and Company will put you back a trifling $25. The bright yellow is a very in-style color and instantly adds life to a dreary Monday morning.
On the lighter side (colorphobes, I'm talking to you) is this fair and easy to wear champagne-hued, cowl neck top with a drawstring waist by BCBGMaxAzria (on sale for $90).
For ladies with a big personality, here's one top that will be equally as vivacious. This shimmering ruffle neck blouse by 7 for All Mankind is 100 percent pure silk and will only put you back $150.
