If you want a top that will hide your stomach, the Gridlock Jersey Blouse by Mink Pink is the way to go. There's pleating throughout the body which leads to a swingy shape perfect for covering up the belly area. There's also quilted stitching at the bib, five buttons at the front, and short sleeves with a button and keyhole.

Lauren Conrad is making a decent amount of tops that we like, which we must say does surprise us. They are usually good staple pieces that aren't too complex but still super cute. The Bisou Top is our latest find. It has two inch banding at the V-neck, a tie at the bust, and 3/4 length sleeves. Looks great with your favorite jeans.

We adore the print of the Libren Blouse by Diane von Furstenberg. It is black and white with just a hint of red around the flowers. This blouse also has a V-neck, pleating at the shoulders and back, ruching at the empire waist, six buttons at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves.
What first stood out to us was the lilac color of the Shadow Top by Nanette Lepore. It's beautiful and very feminine. This blouse has a V-neck and back, smocked banding at the bust, lace trim at the neck, lace trim at the cuffs, cap sleeves, and a hidden back zipper. It is also 100% silk.

Much like the previous post, the Very Light & Fashionable Long Sleeve Top by Splendid comes in a few different colors (this time vanilla, merlot, and black), and is quite affordable, so you can afford to put many different colors of this staple into your closet. This blouse has gather detail and ribbed banding at the scoop neck, ribbed banding and ruching at the bottom hem, and long sleeves.
The Very Light & Fashionable Tunic by Splendid is a cute blouse that has a very reasonable price, so you can afford to buy it in both colors it comes in, valentine and black. It has ruching at the bust, an empire waist, gathered elastic banding at the V-neck and back, one inch banding and ruching at the cuffs, and long sleeves. It is made from a pima cotton and modal blend.
The Shirred Neck Raglan Top by Vince would be a very simple blouse if it wasn't for the interesting ruching at the scoop neck, which almost looks like it's being tucked in. There is also pleat detail at the bust, ruching at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It is made from a stretchy silk and available in off white and black.

The Pleated Neck Top by Clu is cute because it has a pleated ruffle at the scoop neck of this simple top. There's also fine ribbing throughout and long sleeves. What a great way to dress up a top that we all own!
The details of the Rose Garden Top by Nanette Lepore are hard to see from this picture, so we recommend you check it out yourself. It is an intricate lace top with a scoop neck, velvet banding at the waist, cap sleeves, and a hidden back zipper. It is also lined.

The Ombre Thermal Cowl Neck Top by Splendid is as its name implies. It has an oversized cowl neck, ombre color, and is a thermal top. There's also banding at the cuffs of the long sleeves. It is available in black and merlot, but black (the color we prefer) is selling out quickly.
