11 Sleeveless Tops That Still Look Professional

By

Figuring out what to wear to work shouldn’t be a bore. To make your weekdays easier, welcome to Business Casual. Every Wednesday, we’ll highlight the best office-appropriate clothes, whether it’s for the job you have or the one you want.

Dressing for the office this time of year is a delicate balance between staying cool during your commute while still looking professional at your desk. Throwing on a dress is the easiest way to go about this but the downside is that there are only so many unique outfits you can make. And really, most people get bored and want to mix things up when it comes to their weekday wardrobe. The best way to maximize your options is to have a few simple sleeveless tops in your closet. You can wear them tucked into a fun patterned skirt, throw them over culottes, or extend their lives by taking them into the weekend with jeans or cutoffs. Plus, should you get cold, they also layer nicely under blazers. Scroll ahead to shop our favorites, some of which are on deep discount.
