Best Bet: Silk Drafter’s Blouse

Each season, certain colors have their fleeting moments of glory — be it orange, chartreuse, or bright green — but black and white remain classic staples. Madewell’s Drafter’s blouse offers a chic spin on the classic white button-down with contrasting black cuffs and trim. Though it looks sharp, the silk top is comfortable and easy to style. Pair it with a blazer or pencil skirt for work or dress it down with skinny jeans.
