The Napoli Top by LaROK has a very interesting bust with the center fabric looking like it was brought over the neckline and tucked into the bust, similarly to what the Shirt Snob used to do with her t-shirts as a child. This satin top also has a V-neck, ruching and banding at the bust, ruching at the empire waist, a single button closure with a keyhole and pleating at the back, a and hidden side zipper. It's available in black, vista, and azure.
Here's a top we are surprised we haven't written about before as it looks quite familiar. The Flutter Sleeve Top by Ella Moss has short flutter sleeves as the name implies, surged edge at the cuffs, ruching at the front and back, a square neck, and a hip metallic color. Wear with your skinny jeans for a great look!

The Serenade Top by Joie is a romantic blouse with an edge. It has embroidered lace overlay at the bodice, shadow stripes throughout, three buttons at the front, ruching at the bust and back, a square back, cap sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It's available in admiral and porcelain.
The Girlie Top by B With G is the perfect choice if you want a white blouse that isn't a button down. There's a single button at the mandarin collar with a small peak-a-boo hole right beneath, ruffles and elastic banding at the short sleeves and waist, ruching and the bust and shoulders, and is semi-sheer.

If you'd like a top that is warm without being heavy, the Lace Pointelle Top by Burning Torch is one to consider. It's made from a wool and silk blend but is still a thinner material. This blouse also has lace and ribbon detail on the front, a deep V-neck, and banding at the cuffs on the long sleeves.

We really like the neck on the Celeste Top by C&C California . There is tonal stitching detail and ruching at the scoop neck which is simple yet pretty and rather flattering to the neck area. There's also elastic banding at the cuffs and 3/4 length puff sleeves. It's available in canary, marine (almost out at the time of writing this), and navy.

The Ginger Sleeveless Top by Burning Torch is a pretty unique top. It is made of a chocolate brown silk and has contrasting ivory crochet trimming the top. There's also a cinched waist with ruching, a V-neck, and a large tie at the back. It's interesting how it looks like two shirts that are layered instead of one, a style that we really enjoy.

We think the Cramer Crochet Top by Sky has beautiful crocheting below the bust. Since it's sheer there, this top is definitely not for meeting your boyfriend's parents. But if you want something a little sexy, it's perfect for you. This blouse also has a V-neck, cap sleeves, an empire waist, ruching throughout, and a loose-fitting bodice.

The Ruched Scoopneck Fiona Belted Top by Fashionista is a pretty plum color that we are quite fond of. This blouse has a scoop neck and back with ruching, a belt at the natural waist that ties at the back, ruching at the belt, and long sleeves. It's also available in black.

Here's a fun and dressy top that would go great paired with a nice skirt. The Sparkle Top by Graham & Spencer has no sleeves, black beaded embellishment at the scoop neck, shirred detail at the neck, and is 100% silk.
