Why you need a shell top this season

As the warmer weather begins to creep up, the jacket-wearing becomes scarce and thick sweaters become non-existent. One of my favorite spring transition tops is a shell top. Why, you ask? It’s a great layering piece [as seen on me], and a shell top is conservative enough to wear by itself at the office on those hot and humid days. When shopping for a shell top, make sure that it’s fitted around your armpit – no need for bra exposure in the office. If the shell top does come lower under your arm, layer a lightweight cami under it. Since it’s not warm enough to wear the top by itself, I’ve layered the shell top over a bell sleeve blouse and paired it with wide leg pants.
