Classic summer whites
You can spend as much as you want on this tan-enhancing classic. No one but you has to know. The simple lines and basic color make this an easy piece to pick up at stores like Forever 21, Old Navy, Gap, Target or even (gasp) Wal-Mart. The trendy diva might go for a ruffle down the front, or a blouse with an ultra feminine loopy tie.
While there's nothing wrong with spending a little more for quality, don't go crazy. Between spills and sweat stains -- admit it, they happen -- I have yet to keep a white blouse clean for more than two seasons. Do you think the $40 difference between Forever 21's cargo shirt ($19.80, left) and Banana Republic's puff-sleeve cotton blouse ($59, right) is worth it?
