You’re right, now that you have a pair of pants and a skirt, you’ll need some tops to wear with them. I’ll suggest a few tops today and tomorrow before we move on to a few other key basics for your professional wardrobe.

Let’s start first with two tops from our “Essentials with Shaping” collection. These are pieces that include a hidden “shaping sleeve” in the garment that smoothes and shapes in the places that some of us need it. They are comfortable and flattering.

This royal blue color will look amazing on so many women. The Drape Neck Shaping Top  is striking in a beautiful red with a subtle neckline.

Both of these are going to work great in summer since they’re sleeveless, but still layer well as the seasons change.

Stop back tomorrow to see even more options for fashion tops for business.
