What drew us to the Sleeveless Cowl Top by Vince was the great colors. Both of them (coastal and steel) are so rich and inviting, making us wish we were wearing them! Made from a stretchy silk, this blouse has banding at the scoop neck, knife pleats at the bottom hem, and is sleeveless. If you like this top, you may also like Vince's Banded Top too.
While this next top doesn't seem very summery, it's still quite pretty and has some nice details that we really like. The Scoop Neck Blouse by Charlotte Ronson has satin banding at the scoop neck, embroidery throughout, stud detailing at the bust and cuffs, and cap sleeves.
The Mod Button Blouse by L.A.M.B. is certainly a more interesting take on your typical button down blouse. It has matelasse stripes throughout, button detail at the V-neck, four hidden buttons at the front, pleating at the back, and one inch cuffs on the short sleeves. If you want to stand out in the board room, this would be a cute way to do so!

It'll be no surprise to our loyal readers that we adore this top. We can't get enough black and white tops! The Combo Flutter Sleeve Top by Milly has banding and ruching at the square neck, bust, and back, and short flutter sleeves. It has a fun and busy print, and it's also 100% silk.

Here's a stand out top that is in muted colors for a nice change. The Gardenia Top by Robert Rodriguez has rosette detail at the bust, a V-neck, hook and eye closure at the back, a split back, and no sleeves. It's also 100% silk. It's very modern and unusual without trying too hard, which is what makes us so fond of it.

The Embroidered Mexican Top by Min Young Lee has floral embroidery at the lined yoke, lace banding at the crew neck, two buttons at the front, ruching at the bust and back, smocked elastic banding at the cuffs, ruching at the 3/4 length sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It certainly sounds busy, but it actually doesn't seem like too complex of a blouse when you look at it. What we especially love about it is how the embroidery is the same color as the rest of the top. If it was any other color, it could boarder on being costumey. But how it is works just perfectly and keeps it from being over the top.

The Very Light & Fashionable Henley Top by Splendid isn't a super exciting top, but we think it'd be a nice one to own this spring. There's banding and ruching at the scoop neck, seven buttons at the front, short raglan sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It's available in three colors: lemon, white and heather.

The Flutter Top by Loeffler Randall is such a cute top with the ruffle trim along the scoop neck. It's also quite flattering with an empire waist with ruching and then a more loosely fitting body. There's also a hidden side zipper and thick straps. It's available in black and white.

Yesterday we showed you a T-Bags top that we liked. We mentioned how we don't always love their prints. Well, here's one that is available on yesterday's top too that we really like a lot. Print Bra Cup Cap Sleeve Top is in a print that reminds us of a bandanna. It has a knot detail at the bust, ruching at the bust, a wide neck, and no sleeves.

Sometimes the prints that T-Bags uses are a bit much for our tastes. We love to see tops like the Off Shoulder Top by T-Bags therefore. Great shirt but a bit more calming. This top has ruffle trim and elastic banding at the wide neck, thick straps, and unfinished edges at the asymmetrical bottom hem. It can be worn on or off the shoulder. If you prefer the prints, it's also available in three of them.
