A black shirt is a simple wardrobe staple that never gets tired. For me, owning too many is impossible—varying cuts, details and finishes makes each one different and easy to pair with much louder separates.
While hunting for new pieces to add to my collection, I stumbled across this open back shell top on Asos that is a healthy balance between work and play. Though it shows a bit of skin, it can easily go from the office (if yours is more conservative, throw on a cardigan) to a date night.
When dressing heavily in black, I have found that it’s important to take my look up a notch with eye-catching accessories or a pair of bright patterned silk trousers, but I plan on pairing this piece with some lingerie I wouldn’t mind showing off.
Asos Open Back Shell Top, $47.64, available at Asos.
