It features flocked jacquard polka dots throughout, seven buttons down the front, a grosgrain tie with frayed edges, a keyhole, and ruching at the scoop neck, vertical gathered elastic banding at the front, vertical seams at the back, and gathered elastic banding at the cap sleeves. It is short at 21 inches and is semi-sheer.

The Gemma Top by Torn by Ronny Kobo is eye-catching, and it's not a blouse you'd expect to see in army green. It has an asymmetrical neckline, ruching at the side, pleating at the shoulders, and a cap sleeve at the right shoulder and no sleeve at the left. It is also double layered.

We love seeing pointelle detail in our summer blouses and dresses. The Flutter Sleeve Pointelle Top by Catherine Malandrino has this feature throughout as well as a V-neck, solid banding throughout, a rolled edge at the cuffs, and elbow-length fultter sleeves. The bust is lined, it is semi-sheer, and it is available in two colors, blanc and lantana.
