Thankfully, looking expensive has little to do with rocking designer threads. Instead, it’s all about presentation — an ironed dress, some properly fitted shorts and cute tops can make all the difference. That’s why when it comes to finding charming items that look a lot more expensive than they really are, Nordstrom tops are at the top.

Online at Nordstrom, you can find hundreds of stylish tops and blouses that are less than $25 yet easily look twice the price. And the best part is that you know you’re getting quality clothing when you shop online, which is always a plus (especially when you need each piece in your wardrobe to last a long time).

Here are five different tops under $25 on Nordstrom right now that you can dress up or down.
