Desk-Bound Buys: Top Ten Chic Shell Tops

We're not quite sure why, but we've got a sudden hankering for shell tops. Not sure what that is, exactly? Let us enlighten you! A shell top is basically a structured version of a crew-necked sleeveless tee, which typically sits a little big on the body — like a hard, outside 'shell' of sorts. If you fancy yourself a sleeve, pick a squarish shape that hits just off the shoulder line; no frills, please! The appeal comes from the minimalist silhouette and the ability for this somewhat boxy topper to temper more body-con bottoms with a unisex, fuss-free feel. Think Gwyneth Paltrow teaming a boxy tee with a pair of spray-on leather skinnies, or Kate Bosworth working an embellished shell with a figure-hugging pencil skirt. We've found ten winners online for you to peruse. Go on then!
