Building Wardrobes That Make You Shine

The Best Looks For Less: Amazon Essentials Tops

black, white, and blue dress shirts, t-shirts, and tank tops


As you may already know, Amazon Essentials is a private-label brand owned by Amazon offering a wide variety of products including women’s clothing and accessories. It’s an affordable clothing line offering quality options for the basic building blocks of your wardrobe.

Amazon Essentials

Like any “look for less” clothing line, there are hits and there are misses. It’s important to pay attention to the customer comments for clues to fabric quality, fit, and determining the right size for you. I’ve found some tried and true contenders that just might be what you need to fill in the gaps of your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

Tees and Tanks

Amazon Essentials has the perfect choices for your basic short and long sleeve tees, as well as tank tops. This group comes in a large variety of colors and patterns. They skim the lines of your body without being too fitted. Lastly, the fabric blend of cotton, modal, and spandex provides comfort and just the right amount of stretch.


Shirts and Blouses

I’ve chosen an Amazon Essentials satin blouse and a J.Ver stand out classic dress shirt, also available on Amazon. The satin blouse’s quality fabric drapes beautifully and is available in several colors, including a stand out pink. The dress shirt is available in a multitude of colors and provides exceptional quality for its very low price tag. This style skims the body while being incredibly comfortable and long lasting.


Knitwear and Sweaters

Amazon Essentials knitwear and sweaters provide expensive looking quality at an incredibly affordable price. They are lightweight and comfortable, which makes them an ideal basic for layering. And the color choices are endless, so you have plenty of options. One commenter called them “the goldilocks of sweaters – just right!”
