The startlingly simple V-Neck Top ($98) by up-and-coming designer, Eighteenth, defies logic. That is, we'd think a minimalistic poly-rayon blend wouldn't be nearly a hundred bones... Think again. Alterations to the standard T-shirt, usually made by a high-school girl with a pair of kitchen shears, tend to be unimpressive, but these careful edits are a stroke of genius. These extraordinary cut-outs are mindful and progressive, so take notice.
