Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

If you're trying to impress your co-workers in an important Zoom meeting or you're reinvigorating your romantic life via a socially-distanced FaceTime date, a silk printed top is an elegant solution to appear polished, (from the waist up). If you care to change out of stretch pants, the mix-and-match pairing options are virtually endless. A feminine floral button-down can hold its own with a tailored suit, a pair of baggy tomboy jeans, or your floaty vintage maxi skirt. Lightweight enough for dreaded summer heat waves, the versatility of a silk printed top will give even your trusty white button-down some hefty competition. Go for an iconic '70s print, find a sheer version to pair with your arsenal of bralettes, or invest in a designer piece adorned with a signature print. Ahead, we've got 10 options to shop now.
