There's something so playful and lady-like about this top by Karen Walker that features a trompe l'oeil design of a broken strand of pearls. Elegant yet subversive, you could easily pair it with a high-waisted black pencil skirt or ripped jeans. Plus, the armholes are cut comfortably (I hate it when the armholes on shirts are cut too high), giving it a feminine and flattering fit. It retails for $69 at Creatures of Comfort.
