This Vince Camuto top looks like a great basic — you can wear it to work or on the weekend, you can pair it with skinny pants, and you can layer it under a cardigan or blazer. It looks flattering and also not too out-there in terms of the high/low style. (Note that it does seem to be slightly sheer on most of the back.) It only has a couple of reviews so far, but they’re very positive. And, bonus: It’s machine washable, tumble dry low. The top, which is $69 at Nordstrom, is available in plus sizes in black and coral, as well as other colors in regular sizes. Woven Back High/Low Knit Top
These flats happen to have a zipper up the back — huzzah! That’s great news for the harried mom who can’t actually be bothered to undo or redo these straps every time. This shoe comes in burgundy suede, black suede, and this charcoal suede (all lucky sizes at this point) for $89.95 at Nordstrom. (I should note, if you’re a fan of this sort of style you should check out this similar shoe with grommets — and in fuchsia.) Pictured: ‘Bristal’ Ankle Strap Pointy Toe Flat
This Halogen top comes in black, red, and navy, and it looks like it could hide a multitude of sins — if you’re trying to camouflage a mummy tummy or you don’t like how the top of your thighs look — but without having too much fabric. I think the jewel neckline would be perfect for a short, little necklace. The size range is XS-XL and the top is machine washable. It’s 40% off right now, which brings the original $49 to $29. Tuck Detail Sleeveless Top
Here’s a plus-size option from Eloquii.

These packable totes are great for traveling — especially if you’re the kind of person who enjoys switching bags when you travel and you don’t want to take something bulky.
