The Jobi Top by Velvet is one of the sexier tops we've seen recently. There's ruffle trim at the V-neck, atie at the bust, frayed edges at the ruffle and an unfinished edge at the bottom hem, elastic banding at the back and shoulders, ruffle trim at the cuffs, and short voile sleeves. It's available in two colors: cherry and silken.
Here's an adorable one if you want to look sweet and girly. The Rebecca Taylor Peasant Top has a square neckline, pleated bodice, fringe on the bottom hem, lace detailing at the waist, sleeves, and neck, short sleeves, and six back button closures. It's an adorable top for the innocent look if you ever need to go for that.

The Dolman Sleeve Banded Top by Generra is a cute and comfy looking top with banding at the scoop neck, shoulders, and bottom hem, unfinished edges at the cuffs, and elbow length sleeves. It's about to sell out, but as of writing this, it's at least available still in every size. It comes in two colors (black and chalk), but it won't last long.

We think the name of this next top gives a good indicator of when you can use it. The Summer Rain D Tunic by Joie is a great cover up for this summer! There's a split V-neck with topstitching and a tie, tassels at the ties, cross-stitching detail at the bust, topstitiching at the cuffs, long sleeves, and it is semi-sheer.
While we don't think grey is the best color for summer, we think this top is too cute to pass up. The Ruffle Neckline Top by Charlotte Ronson is a pointelle top with a scoop neck and back, ruffle trim at the front, and cap sleeves. It looks like it'd be a lot of fun to wear, being girly but not over the top.
We don't normally like large ties or bows at the bust, but in the case of the Theory Petunia Tee with Bow we can let that slide. This blouse is pretty cute! It has a bow tie at the bust, short sleeves, and a square neck.

If you like ruffles, this is the top for you! The Kristiana Top by Joie has four buttons at the bust, a tie at the neck, smocked elastic banding and beading at the neck and cuffs, and short sleeves. It's 100% silk, semi-sheer, and available in porcelain and grass.

We've always thought off the shoulder tops looked great with bikini tops that tie behind the neck. Here's a great off the shoulder top, the Jen Top by Rachel Pally. It has elastic banding and ruching at the wide neckline and cuffs, short sleeves, and is available in black and lime. It can be worn on the shoulders too if preferred.

The Foster Top by Velvet is one of those easy to wear tops that you want in many different colors. Luckily, it is available in four! It has a sweetheart neckline, a knot at the bust, ruching at the empire waist, and 3/4 length sleeves. It comes in dandelion, empire, sage, and beet.

We were surprised to find this next top is by T-Bags. The Solid Square Neck Short Sleeve Top is not in their usual bold prints but instead available in cherry and winter white, both solid colors. This blouse has a square neck, ruching at the back, band detail and pleating at the bust, unfinished edges at the cuffs of the short flutter sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It is also available in a print too if that's what you prefer.
