Just Add Jeans! 14 Affordable Summer Tops You’ll Wear On Repeat
Affordable Summer Tops
One of the easiest outfits to throw together come spring and summer is a cute top and a pair of white jeans. White jeans are just SO fresh and lighter for the warmer weather. So, having a few tops on hand to pair with your white jeans will make getting dressed a breeze! This got us thinking…Could we find a roundup of beautiful tops that are really affordable AND For Less Friday worthy?!?! We didn’t just want to throw out any old brand or top that we didn’t feel good about so we searched for quality brands and fabrics and you know what? Bingo…we found 14 tops under $65 that will look AMAZING with your white jeans (blue denim, black denim, shorts, and skirts too!) Without further ado, let’s get to it!
Speaking of white jeans, we feature a pair of Erin’s favorites below. She shares more about them and 6 other pairs she loves in this post!
Let’s start off with 2 tops Erin owns and loves. If you like a little drama with your white jeans, try this one-shoulder, French Connection puff-sleeve top! It’s currently on sale for…drumroll… $36🤯 It does run small. Erin is wearing a size 4 but said she’d be more comfortable in a 6. She suggests sizing up at least one size depending on how fitted you want it to be. It also comes in pink, blue, and white. This would be a confident and on-trend look for a girls’ night, dinner out, or a casual summer party.
Erin always talks about how you need the basics in your wardrobe to make it function properly. This white tee is a basic with a twist. The eyelet embroidered flutter sleeves look expensive, but this top is only $49. Really! Most white t-shirts need a refresh after a season or two from yellowing stains in the armpit, or just from day-to-day wear and tear. This pretty top is an outfit-making no-brainer!

Crew Neck Puff Sleeve T-Shirt
Let’s start off with another elevated t-shirt that you’ll wear all summer long. It comes in 7 colors including classic navy, pink, blue, and black. The slight puff, pleated sleeve gives this basic a chic twist so you feel a little more stylish and put together. Any of the colors including white would look amazing with white jeans. An all-white monochromatic look is very on-trend. But you can also wear it with blue denim, shorts, and skirts. This one is a must-have!
For a fresh take on a classic button-down, this cropped (but not too cropped) top is a cool option. If you worry about the cropped length, wear it with your favorite high-waisted jeans or pants. These cropped button-downs can be on the pricey side, so we are thrilled to find out for under $60.
Next up is this beautiful crochet, bell sleeve top. Not everyone loves short sleeves in the summer and a lightweight, ¾ sleeve top like this one is nice to have in your wardrobe. If you’re wearing this with your white jeans, just add a tan or brown waist belt for some added definition.
This top is sneaky flattering with its V-neckline and strategic diagonal stripes which create the illusion of a nipped in waist. The dolman sleeve is perfect for covering your arms and the linen blend will keep you cool. This top comes in 5 striped patterns including a really pretty navy!
If you are a fan of the Rails Ellis button down shirt that Erin wears on repeat (but not the price tag) this dupe is for you! It’s a tunic length, very lightweight, and has a relaxed fit. It comes in 3 other colors.
We had to do a double-take when we saw that this ASTR The Label top was $65! It’s 100% cotton, has a smocked bodice, and a flattering square neckline. The peplum is also great for concealing a tummy. Pair with white jeans for a really chic elevated casual outfit.
This pretty pink blouse has swiss dots that add texture to the fabric. It has a flattering split hem so it will look just as good untucked as it does tucked in. The fabric is a cotton blend and semi sheer, so you’ll want to wear a nude bra or maybe even a cami underneath. The sleeves are just that perfect amount of billowy too!
Who loves green? This gauzy flutter sleeve top is by Caslon, Nordstrom’s in-house brand. It’s 100% cotton and has (yet again!) that V-neckline that looks so good on everyone. Are you noticing a V-neckline trend?? It comes in 3 other pretty summer colors.
For more of a sexy white jeans outfit, this silky plunge neck top might have your name on it. The ties in the front can be adjusted to show a little more or less skin and the ruffle peplum is great for hiding a tummy if that’s an issue for you.
If you need a party-ready halter top to wear with your white jeans, look no further than this pretty blue number! A halter neckline is so flattering especially if you love your shoulders! It has stretchy smocking at the back so you get the perfect fit.
This is a versatile, split neck top can work for the weekend and the workplace. It’s been a best-seller for a few weeks now…you all have been loving it! The ruffle sleeves add such an elegant touch! Also comes in 5 other colors. It does run large so if you don’t prefer a roomy fit, consider sizing down one size.
