This is not the sort of top that I expect to cost under $50, but Catherine Malandrino’s diffusion line (named “Catherine”) is a great place to find stylish details at an affordable price.
The colorful “dazed pansies” print and stripes first caught my eye, but the pleating makes it something truly special. This sort of narrow v-neck and peplum hem is also one of my favorite shapes for wearing under a suit – but you don’t see it very often.
The Catherine Malandrino Rea Mix Print Pleat V-Neck Top is $48 from Nordstrom. It’s washable jersey.
