Something Simple

Sometimes, you just don't need anything fancy. For moms on the go, errands to run, or a lazy day around the house, there's the simple v-neck style t-shirt, available for less than $20.00 in eight shades, in sizes 1X to 5X. Pair them up with yoga pants, jeans, shorts, or a casual skirt.

If you want to take it further, this is the perfect starting point to an outfit that's all about accessories. Add on some chunky jewelry or a scarf and you won't look like you're wearing "just" a t-shirt and jeans at all.

Boutique + 3/4 Sleeve Keyhole Neck Woven Blouse-Plus
More Details

Flowers and Lace

This 3/4-sleeve keyhole neck woven blouse is feminine, but it has an edge. Flowers and lace are paired up together here in what would normally be considered completely girly, but the lace is black and balances that effect out. The mid-hip length makes it a good match for jeans, skirts, shorts, or slacks. This top is available in two color options in sizes 1X to 5X for less than $50.00.

Party Time Halter Top

Party Time Halter Top

When it's time to let your hair down and have a good time, this halter top is a sexy winner. The black mesh combines with the attention-grabbing halter shape and peplum style that play up a woman's curves. It's available in sizes 14W to 18W (only in black) for around $70.00.

Bell Sleeve Wrap Blouse
More Details

Wrap Style

Feminine sleeve detail combines with a wrap style that will show off an hourglass shape in this bell sleeve wrap blouse, available for right around $100.00 in 0X to 3X. Where the waist ties at the waist, there's a tassel for an extra fun detail that doesn't stand out at first. If this muted shade isn't your thing, you may love the bright yellow floral option.

You could wear this style almost anywhere, but make sure the bottom half of the outfit hugs your body in the thigh and hip area. A bootcut jean could complement this top nicely, but the flowy style of the shirt needs to be balanced by something a little more form-fitting than a loose, long skirt or flares, for example.

L&L Floral Blouse
More Details

Sheer Florals for Layering

Here's a similar style, minus the bell sleeves, available for around $70.00 in a size 18W. It's sheer, so you may wish to wear a camisole or tank top underneath, either in nude or black. This will pair well with work slacks when layered modestly, and will also be great for jeans or short- to- mid-length skirts.

There are so many styles on the market, from t-shirts to tunics, that you can dress up or down to show off your curves. With some layering, several of them can carry you through the whole year (or at least two or three seasons). If you like a top and have a creative way to pair it up or think it may be a "don't," don't be afraid to break the rules and flaunt your own personal style.
