BELL SLEEVE BASIC

RAY-BAN Sunglasses // TOME Top (similar options here, here, and here) // FRAME Jeans // ELINA LINARDAKI Sandals (also available here) // Straw Tote // LAURA MERCIER “Radiance” Primer // NARS Blush in “Orgasm” // SISLEY-PARIS Lipstick in “Baby” 

A classic white shirt is one of those things that every girl should have in her closet. There simply is no other shirt (except for maybe the striped tee) that is more timeless and offers more versatility. This top from Tome (check out this H&M lookalike!)  has all of that plus something more: a bell sleeve. I love a bell sleeve! (Proof: I own this top in three colors.) It’s a simple detail that instantly makes any top a little more interesting. (It’s also what gives this dress the va-va-voom!)  I love what it does for this shirt: it adds a feminine touch and turns it into a not-so-basic basic.

I did a little perusing and found some equally amazing bell-sleeve shirts. I’ve already ordered this Theory one and I’m really tempted to splurge on this one, too. Other favorites include this one (love the peplum!), this one and this one. Looking for something under $100? Check out this one, this one, and this one. Another really good style steal: this one! It’s $55 and on its way to me in blue.
