We think the Short Sleeve Loose Top by MK2K would look great with a pair of skinny jeans or some other small bottom. It has ruching at the wide neck, seven buttons down the front, ruching and a drawstring tie at the bottom hem, elastic banding and ruching at the cuffs, and short sleeves. It's semi-sheer and also available in charcoal and white.
This top is probably not for everyone, but we really like the color combinations and think that when paired with the correct bottom, it could look amazing! The Gesture Top by Nanette Lepore has pleating and ruching at the bust, balloon edge at the cuffs, lined short puff sleeves, and a hidden back zipper. It's also 100% silk.

The Dainty Top by Madison Marcus is quite an interesting look that we definitely haven't seen before. This top has scalloped sleeves, gathered scallops at the square neck, and is 100% silk. We love the bright yellow color, perfect for spring!

The Grey and Yellow Top by Coven has very interesting color combinations that really allow this blouse to pop out in a crowd. It's slightly oversized with a wide neck, asymmetrical stripe detail, and short sleeves. Would look great with a variety of bottoms.

The Wedge Top by M Missoni is unlike anything we've ever had on Shirt Snob in the past. It has a relaxed boat neck, a removable tie at the waist, and is semi-sheer. We love the bright stripes, and how it can be so loose fitting and yet still so flattering with the tie.
We just can't get enough yellow right now. The Pleated Puff Sleeve Blouse by Laila Azhar is a perfect blouse for spring. It has buttons down the front, pleating at the scoop neck, a scoop back, puff sleeves, and a lining. It's also a cotton and silk mix.

The blue color on this next top is amazing! The Flutter Sleeve Blouse by Lauren Moffatt is made from a beautiful blue stretch satin, and it has a double snap closure at the deep V-neck, ruching at the bodice, and short flutter sleeves.
Here's a white linen top perfect for spring! The Embroidered Linen Date Top by Juicy Couture has embroidered banding at the square neck, a crochet tie at the waist, ruffle trim at the bust and back, lace trim at the two inch straps, and five buttons at the side. We think innocent and flirty tops like this one are so much fun to wear as the weather gets warmer.

The prints on these next two blouses by Elissa Coleman are amazing and so unusual. First there's the Malo Top. This 100% silk top has a square neckline, two inch banding and ruching at the bottom hem, no sleeves, and is hand painted.
The Viva Top is also hand painted with ruching at the covered cord neckline, a split back, no sleeves, and a lining. It too is 100% silk. These both are so pretty and unique, quickly making us big fans of Elissa Coleman!
The Topanga Blouse by Ella Moss would be a great cover up this summer. It has a V-neck, five buttons at the front, smocked elastic banding and a tie at the bottom hem, elastic banding and ruching at the cuffs, elbow length sleeves, and is semi-sheer. There are also stripes throughout, and it's available in black and white.
