You don't see cross stitch on shirts very often, but there are cross stitched flowers across the top of the Aristra Top by Joie. This boho blouse also has a slight stretch at the bodice, a rounded hem, wide neck with a tie, and short sleeves with ruffles. It's also 100% silk.

You have a very flattering blouse in the Pattras Applique Top by Free People, but the cutouts and embroidery at the bib really take it to another level. This striped top also has a scoop neck, single button and keyhole at the back, smocked banding at the waist, surged edge at the asymmetrical bottom hem and cuffs, and short dolman sleeves. We think it's too cute to wear with ripped jeans like on the model. Wear it with simpler bottoms so it will stand out more.

The Pleated Trapeze Tunic at MaxStudio is a little retro, which is why we love it. There is pleating at the empire waist, back, and cuffs, embroidered stitching at the bib, hidden snaps down the front, and elbow-length sleeves. Can be worn as shown or with the snaps open and a cute cami underneath. It is available in white and yellow.

We think the beading and leaf embroidery at the bib and waist of the Boxton Kurta Top by Antik Batik is so pretty! This blouse also has a high neck, six hook-and-eye closures at the front, ruching at the waist, a hidden side zipper, a single button at the cuffs, and long sleeves. It is sheer and made from a cotton and silk blend.
This ethereal top is definitely a hard one to pass up this spring. The Dakota Embroidered V Neck Top by Alice + Olivia has ruching, ruffle trim, and a tasseled drawstring at the scoop neck, keyhole at the bust, tonal embroidery throughout, gathered elastic banding at the cuffs, and long sleeves. It is sheer and 100% silk.

Here is yet another old fashioned looking print that we are coveting. The So Fine Print Draped T-Shirt by Only Hearts has pleating at the scoop neck, draping at the front, pleating and spaghetti strap at the scoop back, and short kimono sleeves. While floral prints are big this spring, this one is unlike any other we've seen, and that makes this top extra special.
The Liberty Top by YAYA AFLALO has a bit of an old fashioned print that somehow feels so now. Maybe it's the stud detail at the notched collar that modernizes it. This blouse also has a single button at the front, patch pocket at the bust, embroidery throughout, ruching at the back, slits at the sides, and short sleeves. It is semi-sheer and 100% silk.
