We must be in the mood for simple black tops today. The Barbry Top by Theory is a pretty basic black blouse with banding at the wide neck, short sleeves, and inverted pleating at the bust and back. It looks comfortable and like the previous jacket can be work with many different bottoms.

We think the Johannna Top by Velvet has a very unique design that we really like. It has a crossed bodice unlike any other we've seen. There's also a V-neck, rolled hems and cuffs, and shirring at the shoulders. It's available in black and tide.

The Darla Top by Corey Lynn Calter is a little different, but we think it'd be fun to wear. It has a giraffe print, deep square neck with horizontal stripes and eyelet trim, and flutter sleeves. Besides coffee, it's also available in black.

We're already starting to think ahead to spring here at Shirt Snob. We think that the Jennifer Short Sleeve Top by C&C California would be great. It's available in a couple cute spring colors (honeydew and mulberry, and faded black too), and it's lightweight and forgiving for those of you that indulged a bit this winter. This blouse has inverted pleated and ribbed banding at the wide neck, ribbed banding and ruching at the bottom hem, elastic banding at the cuffs, short sleeves, and it is semi-sheer.

We recently showed you a top that incorporated the latest snake trend. Here's another. The Matte Jersey with Snake Detail by Roberto Cavalli has a golden serpent that winds through the center. There's ruching and gathering surrounding the snake, and there's also a deep V-neck and no sleeves. If you like snakes as much as we do, we think this would be a great one to have.

When looking for organic clothing, we mostly see t-shirts. So we are excited that C&C California has a bunch of cute organic tops available. One we really like is the Organic Heather Top. It has a drawstring and keyhole at the scoop neck, ruching and banding at the neckline and cuffs, a single button at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It's available in two colors: mulberry and white.

After the holidays, more than a few of us realize that we've added a pound or two. Need something to wear to hide your stomach while you work off the pounds that is still sophisticated? Try the Etienne Top by Diane von Furstenberg. This blouse has a very high waist, cowl neck, gathering detail at the cuffs, and short sleeves. The top is also ribbed and semi-sheer.

If you're looking for something colorful, we like the Renzo Top by Dallin Chase. The print has a bunch of different colors with a pretty purple background. There's four buttons at the front, smocked banding at the neck, six inch slits at the sides, elastic banding at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves.

The Draping V Top by Free People is a pretty blouse that looks super fun to wear. It has a Deep crossover V-neck, pointelle flutter sleeves, banding at the neck and bottom, and ruching at the neck. It's available in three colors: ivory, black, and violet.

We love white blouses that have an air of innoncence. The Girls Don't Cry Top by Joie definitely fits that bill. This sheer gauze top has six buttons down the front, pintucking at the front and back, lace trim at the placket, shoulders, and cuffs, a drawstring at the hips, a crew neck, and short sleeves. It's quite girly, perfect for when you need a little feminine pick me up.
