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.

The Drape Back Shirt by Mara Hoffman has such an unusual print, and we think this blouse could be quite versatile, going well with jeans and skirts. There is a deep V-neck, a thin strap and cowl at the back, four buttons at the front, an asymmetrical hem, and short dolman sleeves. It is made from a stretchy silk.
