The best women’s tops for working from home and virtual dates

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.

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.
