We find the watercolor print on the Amaya Blouse by Elie Tahari quite pretty. This blouse has ruffle trim at the wide neck, split ruffled cuffs at the elbow length sleeves, and a camisole lining. The shell is also 100% silk.
We are quite fond of bohemian shirts, but the saffron color of the Monique Blouse by Joie is what clinched us. It has a scoop neck and back with slight ruching, single button closure at the neck, and elbow length sleeves with elastic banding. There's an attached slip underneath, and the shell is 100% silk.

The Zandy Top by Sue Stemp has a beautiful floral graphic at the front which will catch everyone's eye. There's also contrast banding at the crew neck, pleating at the front and back, two inch slits at each side, and short kimono sleeves. It is semi-sheer and 100% silk.
We were drawn to the pretty print of the Printed Dolman Halter Top by Free People, but it's an interesting top besides that. It has a surplice neckline, banded bottom hem, dolman sleeves with duffed detail, ad is sheer. However, there is an attached tie halter on the front with lace crochet trims. It has a loose fit and is available in midnight and ruby.

We haven't had a black and white top for a while, so we are happy we discovered the Euphoria Top by Nanette Lepore. It has beading and contrast applique detail at the V-neck, ruching at the shoulders and back, a balloon edge at the cuffs, and elbow-length sleeves. It is also 100% silk.
The checkering on the Open Block Check Shirt by James Perse gives this oxford blouse a 90s feel. It has five buttons down the front, a tapered fit, and fold over collar with a button. Pair with jeans for a casual yet tailored look.

Thinking ahead for spring? The Print Blouse by Rebecca Taylor is now available for pre-order. This stunning blouse has a round neck, deep split V-neck with three buttons, and short flutter sleeves. The beautiful floral print is what makes it truly special though.
The Farmer's Daughter Shirt by Free People is a cute woven shirt with a fold over collar, tiered bottom hem, tie around the waist with leather cord detail, crochet inset at the back, patch pocket at the bust, buttons down the front, and lined cap sleeves. The front is longer than the back, it is made from a linen and cotton blend, and it's available in three colors: pink, royal/white, and tea/white.

If you liked the Sophie Top a few days ago, you'll probably also like the Lilian Blouse by Elizabeth & James. This blouse has a V-neck, pleating throughout, button detail at the neck and down the front, an elastic at the natural waist, and short flutter sleeves. It's also 100% silk and semi-sheer.

The Shirt Snob adores tops like the Braelyn Blouse by Elie Tahari. Flirty and feminine and quite pretty too! Made of a wrinked cotton gauze, there is ruffle trim at the wide neck, unfinished edge at the ruffle, ruffle trim and smocking at the bust, a braided tie at the waist, seven buttons down the front, and ruching at the long sleeves. It is also semi-sheer.
