We were drawn to the Could Be Drawstring Top by Joie because of it's stunning crocheted banding at the split V-neck and cuffs. This blouse also has a drawstring at the waist, ruching, a tie, and keyhole at the cuffs, and elbow-length raglan sleeves. It is semi-sheer also available in orchid taupe and porcelain.
It's hard to see the details on the Ribbon Jacquard Top by Anna Sui, so this is a time when it's really helpful to have the description as well! There is tulle trim and metallic jacquard banding throughout, unfinished edges at the tulle, ruffle trim and a drawstring at the wide neck, ruffle trim and gathered elastic banding at the cuffs, and 3/4 length raglan sleeves. It is semi-sheer as well.

This floral button up top is perfect for jeans or paired with a skirt for work. The Litote Shirt by Paul & Joe Sister has a Peter Pan collar, a small breast pocket, seven buttons up the front, rounded bottom hem, a button at each cuff, and short sleeves. The vintage looking print is also a must have!

We love the print of the Bloom Peasant Top by Ella Moss. This blouse has a keyhole and tie at the scoop neck, smocking at te bottom hem and cuffs, and short sleeves. It is made from a cotton and silk blend and is available in zest and nautical.

Looking for something sort of patriotic to wear this July 4th, but don't want a flag print? The Scribble Flower Print V-Neck Top by Orla Kiely is a good option because it has the red, white, and blue colors, but it's a bit more subtle than obvious patriotic clothing. This blouse has a floral print throughout, V-neck with a ruffle and tie, and striped banding at the short sleeves and bottom hem. It is a cute, girly top, and would look great with your favorite jean shorts.

We adore bright and cheery tops such as the Pleated Silk & Linen Blouse at MaxStudio. There is crinkled textures and silken stripes throughout, vertical pleating down the middle and across the bust, stitch detail at the empire waist and down the front, a scoop neck, a sash that ties at the back, a single button at each cuff, and 3/4 length sleeves. It is made from a silk and linen blend.

Yet another versatile top that you can wear to so many places depending on your bottoms. The Dinner Party Top by Rebecca Taylor has rhinestone and bead detail at the scoop neck and bust, seven hook-and-eye closures at the front, ruching at the bottm hem, and elbow-length dolman sleeves. It is also 100% silk. Pair with a skirt to dress it up or with shorts to dress it down, it look fabulous either way!

It's hard to see the details of the Contrast Piped Blouse by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent from the picture, but this top has metallic pinstriping throughout. There is contrasting print banding at the split V-neck and yoke, ruching at the yoke and shoulders, and short sleeves. It is also sheer.
