We've written about a few fabulous plaid tops this season already, but here's one more. The Tartan Shirt by L.A.M.B. has four D-ring straps at the fold-over collar, four buttons at the front, a flap snap bust pocket, buttoned storm flap at the back, button-tab gathers at the cuff, single button cuff closure, and long sleeves. It's a unique top by itself, but adding the plaid makes it extra special in our opinion.
The Coverstitch Turtleneck by Vince is a basic that you'll get a ton of use of this winter. It has a turtleneck, tonal topstitched seams at the sides, hem, and shoulders, and long sleeves. It is made from a stretchy jersey and is available in three colors: heather oatmeal, heather coal, and black.

When we are shopping for the simple, basic tops that we need in our wardrobe, we like to have a bunch of colors to choose from. That is one reason we like this week's Frugal Friday, the City Style Puff Sleeve Knit Top at New York & Co. This top has draping at the scoop neck, pleat detail at the bust, and short puff sleeves. The best part is that it is available in five colors: black, mossy forest, metallic teal, proudly gold, and charming pearl.
