The best women’s tops for working and dating from home

Working women like Kim Kardashian are prioritizing above-the-waist fashion for virtual meetings. @kimkardashian

We have officially entered the pants-free era.

As the coronavirus lockdown forces the world to work and date via webcam, women are slipping into their comfiest leggings and prioritizing fashion from the waist up.

A Walmart exec noted last week that sales of tops are skyrocketing, while pants purchases are dragging behind. (Call it the mullet of the Zoom era: Business up high, party down below.)

During this new stay-home normal, impressing your boss, enticing your crush and haute-ing up happy hour requires nothing more than a chic shirt.

So upgrade your virtual presence with one of these beautiful blouses — all for under $100.
