You might have a drawer overstuffed with a million t-shirts or shelves cluttered with dozens of printed blouses, but when it comes to tops, less is more as long as you've stocked up where it counts. Sure, it's fun to take every trend for a test-drive, but with limited closet space, we've made it a point to eke out only the essentials — and if you do it right, you can get by with just 11 tops. We started with the traditional basics and made room for the necessary new additions, but inside, you'll find every blouse and tee you need to stock your closet from the workweek through the weekend, season after season. Consider this your guide to a foolproof top and t-shirt wardrobe.
