Our Editors Are Convinced You Need These 7 Tops

Whether you’re going for the ultimate capsule wardrobe or upgrading your current closet go-to’s, we think there are a few staple items that every woman’s wardrobe should include. They are your hard-working versatile multitaskers, your favorite pieces you find yourself reaching for again and again, and your saving grace when you’re running just a bit late and need a safe option you know will look great. From blouses to sweaters, we’ve compiled a list of the top seven tops we know you’ll love as much as we do.

A Cardigan Sweater

A cardigan sweater is the ultimate fashion-meets-function clothing item. A neutral color like gray, navy, or black can go with a variety of outfits from your wardrobe, or a printed or colorful sweater can add a pop of classy fun. You can even try different styles of cardigans like the popular grandpa cardigan or the long cardigan that’s perfect for fall. These sweaters are ideal layering pieces - they can be worn over a top or dress for a touch of warmth in the summer, or layered under heavier jackets or coats in colder months. And the best part? Cardigan sweaters are light enough to throw in your bag or carry around when you’re out and about so you’ll always be prepared to ward off the chill of the grocery store or a restaurant that feels like the thermometer is set at sub-zero temperatures.

A Plain White T-Shirt

A plain white T-shirt is an absolute wardrobe must-have. Trust us on this one. It can be worn in so many different ways that you honestly could wear it every day and have a completely different look. Dress it up with a printed skirt and heels, dress it down with denim and your favorite sneakers, pair it with a pinafold for a sweet summer-day look, or even wear it under a blazer for a casual-yet-professional ensemble. We also love this staple because a plain white T-shirt is a safe bet when trying out bold new print pants or when you want to wear sweats but don’t want to look too grungy. From a sleek v-neck to comfy crew - keep a variety of styles on hand to grab and rock anytime.

A Striped Shirt

Whether it’s a soft T-shirt or a slouchy boyfriend shirt, a nautical-inspired striped shirt goes with way more than you might realize. It's simple yet elegant pattern goes with almost any look or accessory pairing. Dress it up with bold jewelry, add a trendy pop of color by layering it under a colorful blazer, or add fun accessories with contrasting patterns. Navy or blue stripes go with everything from white denim to dark dress pants. Wear it to work, to a coffee date with your friends, or while running errands around town.

A Black Tank

You have two main options when it comes to this closet essential. With black tanks, you can go casual or dressy - either style will work wonders as a wardrobe addition. Take the casual approach, for example. Just like your go-to white T-Shirt, a casual black tank top can pull together an amazing number of outfits. Throw it on with jeans and a floppy hat for summer, layer it under a flowy kimono during spring, or top it with a blazer or comfy sweater during fall and winter. A dressier tank, on the other hand, will take you from your morning meetings to after-work drinks with absolute ease. If you’re going for a professional look, make sure to choose a tank with wider straps or an elegant halter style and grab a sweater or blazer to have on hand if layers become necessary.

A White Button-Down Shirt

A white button-down shirt is the perfect blank canvas for any style. Opt for a pencil skirt or dress pants for a look that means business, or pair with a flowy skirt or boyfriend jeans for a casual, chic day-off outfit. The best thing about this top is its wonderful potential to show off accessories. Rock a bold necklace, a fabulous handbag, a chic bandana, or fun statement shoes for a pop of color and style that shines against the classic white top. Since this top is so simple, you can really have fun with your accessories without having to worry about overdoing it. This is also the perfect top to take you from season to season. Wear it on its own during warmer months, and layer it under sweaters or jackets during colder seasons.

A Stylish Bodysuit

We’ve all been there. That adorable top you love is just a bit too short for the pants you’re wearing, leaving you with the uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing moments where it rides up and shows more skin than you’d like. Say hello to your new best friend - the bodysuit. These onesie-type tops snap or fasten at the bottom, leaving you with a stylish ensemble that stays tucked in perfectly. With a fit and style you adore, this piece will easily become your new go-to for all occasions, from dancing the night away in a sleek bodysuit to walking around the farmers market, and yes, even to the gym.

A Comfy Hoodie

A go-to hoodie should be a part of any closet simply because it may be the most amazing thing to throw on for warmth and comfort. Pair an oversized hoodie with leggings and sneakers for the ultimate casual day, or dress a more fitted hoodie up with dark jeans and booties for a comfortable look that also has a touch of chic style. Or go with the trendy tracksuit look by pairing matching designer hoodies and sweatpants. Need more convincing? Witness Beyoncé rock hers.
