Fact: There's nothing that makes getting dressed easier than a pretty top. I mean, really—it takes all the work out of putting together an outfit. All you do is add jeans or trousers and you're done. A pretty top does all the heavy lifting for you. That's why I recently went on a mission to find the prettiest tops for fall to add to my closet to make my life just a little bit easier in the coming months.
So, we already know that there's nothing better than a pretty top. But one that's also affordable? Well, that's basically a unicorn right there. From the cropped $48 cardigan that goes with every bottom imaginable to the $55 blouse your whole office will be asking you about, these are the 19 best pretty, affordable tops (aka unicorns) I've come across.
