We love to see girly floral prints like on the Spring Posey Camisole by Rebecca Taylor. This scoop neck tank has unfinished ruffle trim and four buttons at the front, an inverted front pleat, gathered elastic banding at the back, an asymmetrical hem, and adjustable spaghetti straps. It is 100% silk.

Both the print and the silhouette of the Print Tunic by A.L.C. are rather uncommon, which makes this top one that people will notice. There is draping and crossover detail at the neck, ruching at the front, deep arm openings, a solid panel and inverted pleat at the back, and a shirttail hem. It is 100% silk with a jersey tank lining and is 31 inches long.

While the Shirt Snob does not think this is the perfect season for this next top, it's too interesting to not write about now. The Sea Turtle Tunic by Winter Kate has embroidery and metallic accents throughout, a ruched and split V-neck, and long bell sleeves. It is double layered at the front and semi-sheer at the back and sleeves.

If you want to look extra patriotic this July 4th, check out the American Flag Boyfriend Tee by Torn by Ronny Kobo. It has an American flag graphic as well as a crew neck, tiny holes throughout, and short sleeves. Great for any cook outs you will attend during the long weekend.

We adore polka dots, and the Smocked Collar Blouse by Tucker is a fun way to see them. This blouse has a smocked elastic collar, six buttons down the front, gathered elastic cuffs, and 3/4 length raglan sleeves. It is sheer and 100% silk.

The Masona Top by Joie is a casual blouse with a calming print. There is a split V-neck with a tie, embroidery at the ruched neck, gathering at the elastic cuffs, and short sleeves. It is semi-sheer too.
June 21, 2011
The Eugina Top by Velvet is a top you'll get a lot of use out of. It looks great with so many bottoms and can be worn through the fall too. It has a crew neck with a drawstring, five buttons at the front, button tabs that gather the cuffs, and sleeves that can be worn either elbow-length or 3/4 length. It is a jersey gauze too.
June 20, 2011
Now, we'd wear this next top with something underneath of course, but the Lily Blouse by Velvet is quite pretty. There is a very deep crossover V-neck, smocked elastic bottom hem, vertical back seam, serged edge at the cuffs, and elbow-length dolman sleeves. It is semi-sheer and made from a cottom and silk blend.

Add some sunshine to your wardrobe with the Luisa Top by Tory Burch. This blouse has a scoop neck with a tasseled drawstring, six buttons at the front, button-flap pockets at the bust, ruching at the single button cuffs, and long raglan sleeves. It is sheer and made from a wrinkled voile.

Casual tanks like the Doheny Tank by Patterson J. Kincaid are a go to for the Shirt Snob in the summer. This one is tie-dyed and oversized and features a scoop neck, oversized pintuck, and knotted one inch straps. It is 100% silk and available in persian rug/hot pink and forest/citron.
June 15, 2011
If you still can't get enough of florals, the Double Take Tank by Blu Moon is another pretty one. There is a V-neck, draped bodice overlay, and adjustable spaghetti straps.
June 14, 2011

June 10, 2011
The Thea Tank by Joie is a bit dressier than most other tanks, so you could probably even sneak it under a jacket for the office. There is a tasseled tie at the split V-neck, embroidery and beading at the neck and bust, pintucking at the front and back, and 1.5 inch straps. It is made from a wrinkled cotton gauze.
June 9, 2011
The Japan Disaster Relief Project Long Sleeve Tee by James Perse is an extra special top because 100% of the profits made from it will go to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund. The tee has a scoop neck, Japanese flag graphic at the back, and 'We Are All In This Together' characters at the sleeve. There are short sleeves, and it is semi-sheer.

The Simone Solid Blouse by Marc by Marc Jacobs is quite a girly blouse due to the pale pink color. There is a Peter Pan collar, nine hidden snaps down the front, a patch bust pocket, ruching at the shoulder, back, and single button cuffs, and cap sleeves. It is 100 silk and semi-sheer.
June 3, 2011
We adore black and white combinations, and we can't get enough of stripes, so of course the Ella Striped Peplum Tee by Alice + Olivia is a new favorite. This top has a wide neck, peplum waist, exposed back zipper, unfinished edge at the cap sleeves, and the contrasting buckled belt that adds a pop of color. It is double layered at the bodice and silk-organza lined at the bottom panel.
June 2, 2011
The Simona Camisole by Soft Joie is one of those versatile tops that you can wear with lots of different bottoms to many different occasions, so it's a god staple to own. There is a gathered scoop neck, draping at the sides, thin straps at the shoulders, and crisscross spaghetti straps at the back. It is double layered and available in porcelain and dusty olive.
June 1, 2011
We used to love ponchos in the 90s, so the Milano Poncho Top by Patterson J. Kincaid is a nice find. It features a hood, embroidered stripes, draped sides, dropped seams at the shoulders, an inverted triangle at the bust, rolled edge at the asymmetrical bottom hem, and long dolman sleeves. It is semi-sheer too. Perfect for night time at the beach or roasting smores by the fire!
