The Twist Front Top by Robert Rodriguez is a silk-chiffon top that has know detail at the left shoulder on the asymmetrical neckline. There's also a horizontal seam at the yoke, cap sleeves, and it's semi-sheer. It looks very elegant and could be worn to many different occasions which we love.
Something must be in the water because suddenly there are all these cute tops with ties at the front. Maybe this isn't a look we dislike after all! The Long Sleeve Blouse with Tie by Rebecca Taylor is one such top. It has ruffle trim and a tie at the V-neck, pleating at the bust, seam detail at the waist, ruching at the back, two buttons and ruching at the cuffs and long sleeves. It is made from a silk and spandex mix and comes in rose quartz and ariel.

We've written about tops like the Alessandra Shirt by Elie Tahari before. We love varieties of the typical white button down blouse. This one ha a mandarin collar, split V-neck, six buttons down the front, ruching, seam detail and topstitching at the bust, two buttons and topstiching at the cuffs, and long sleeves. If you need something a little different for the office, this is a great choice!

The Admirer Top by LOVE YAYA has a great name because we sure are admiring it. This nautical-inspired top has a small tie at the front, ribbed banding at the scoop neck, bottom hem, and cuffs, elbow length sleeves, and stripes throughout. We think it's paired quite well with the Leather Pencil Skirt by Vince too.
For all of you fans of wide necks, there's the Band Scoop Top by Susana Monaco. It has a wide scoop neck with one inch banding, ruching at the bust, and long sleeves. It comes in two colors: quarry and black.

We've stated many times that we are not fans of big ties by the neck, but at this time of year, we start really loving everything plaid (we know, it's a character flaw, but we can't help it), so we'll let it go. The Plaid Blouse by Splendid is a plaid blouse with six buttons down the front, a shirttail bottom hem, one inch banding and ruching at the cuffs, 3/4 length sleeves, and it's sheer. It comes in three colors: merlot, evergreen, and navy.
