5. Polka Dots Top

Did you know that dots were avoided in the middle ages as they reminded people of the plague epidemic? But polka dots made a raring comeback in the 1800s and have stayed ever since. We are never letting this one go out of our wardrobe. The eternal cubicle confetti and polka dots are the best representation of “less is more”. So elegant whether you pair it with a pencil or a-line skirt, or skinny or wide-leg pants. This is just one all-rounder. Go ahead, and ensure you have one go-to polka dot top on your shelf to beat the work blues.

Depending on how you style your floral top, you can portray a fine balance between the confidence of a boss and the charm of a garden party. From small blossoms to vibrant petals, it's like wearing a garden on your sleeves. So pick a floral pattern and let it remind you of the beauty in every workday.

7. Sleeveless Solid Top

Yes, we know that a sleeveless top for office wear has been a point of contention forever. Can you or can you not wear it to work? Sleeveless tops stand for boldness, freedom, and individuality. We say go ahead and embrace the arms-out attitude with a sleeveless top for the office. Sleeveless tops are a no-brainer if you want to pair them with a blazer or jacket for a layered look. It’s high up on comfort along with a jacket and makes one look very sleek at work. Also, it’s super versatile as you move from your desk to dinner. When the clock strikes five, ditch the blazer, add a statement necklace, and you're ready to dazzle over dinner.

8. Peplum Top

Peplum Top


Peplum tops can be sleek and flowy at the same time. The flared waistline makes it comfortable for any body shape or type, especially for conscious ones. At IREA, we have added a twist to the peplum, as seen in Carissa and Cora, by adding slits so that they can be paired with high-waist trousers giving the much-needed professional look while evoking a sense of dynamism in the attire. We cannot imagine a wardrobe without the super comfortable peplum top!

9. Satin Blouse Top

Satin tops at the office? Oh, it's like bringing a touch of glam to the grind! Imagine strolling into the office with a soft shimmer of confidence. These tops aren't just fabric; they're your secret weapon against mundane Mondays - smooth, sleek, and so utterly stylish. Tuck one into tailored pants for a CEO-worthy look or pair it with a pencil skirt for a dose of "I mean business and I'm fabulous" vibes. Choose a solid or printed satin blouse, you just cannot go wrong here, if you want to stand out of the crowd.
