*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Allison requested a few picks for structured tops, so here we go:
Boden Maggie Ottoman Top – was $88.50, now $75.22
with code 3Y9L
Confession: I don’t own any ottoman garments myself, but it sure popped up a lot as I searched for structured tops! This ribbed weave – in this case a cotton/poly blend – will hold its shape better than most knits. The wide collar gives this particular top a fun retro feel. Available in this black/ivory stripe as well as turquoise/blue stripe or solid navy in sizes 2 – 18. Size availability varies by color. This ribbed top has a very similar shape and comes in petite, plus, and petite plus sizes, and also comes in stripes.
eShakti Heart Print Peplum Top – was $44.95, now $33.71
discount taken in shopping cart
Great for Valentine’s Day, but this heart print will work well beyond, too. Peplums are a safe bet for structure, and I love the cutaway hem on this top. Since this is an eShakti blouse, that means it’s available in sizes 0 – 36W AND that you can customize sleeve style and length. So if cap sleeves don’t work for you, you’ve got lots of other options!
Calvin Klein Ponte Top with Pockets – was $89.50, now $19.99
I was hoping to find more ponte options for tonight’s roundup, but this was one of the only ponte tops that I came across. If you’re in a cold climate and need to layer, you might lose some of the structure and detail for the time being. But worn alone, this top has a fantastic structured shape. Also has an exposed back zipper. Available in sizes S – XL. This top is sleeveless, but available in black in sizes 14W – 24W.
J.Jill Lightweight Ottoman Pullover – was $69, now $29.99
We might be entering sweater territory here, but in case you’re curious about ottoman but don’t dig the portrait collar on the striped top, I wanted to offer another option. This one comes in this pale blue as well as red, white, black, or camel in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite and plus sizes.
