We are quite fond of the caramel color of this next top, the Louisa Puff Sleeve Top by Ella Moss, as it's perfect for fall. This blouse has a wide neck with banding, ruching at the bust and back, a button and keyhole at the back, elbow length sleeves with balloon edges at the cuffs, and banding at the bottom hem. It's also available in slate and army.
Edited October 29:
It's also now available in black.

The Backless Top by Black Halo has an open back as the name suggests. It also has a V-neck with peek-a-boo holes and ruching at the bust and flutter sleeves. The print is not too over the top, which help make this blouse sexy without being sleazy.

Belts at the natural waist became popular again while the Shirt Snob was pregnant, and we feel like we've missed this trend. If you like the look but aren't too sure how to pull it off yourself, the Striped Harness Top by McQ - Alexander McQueen makes everything easy for you. This pinstriped shirt has a contrast belt at the waist, so you don't have to choose one yourself! It also has a contrast, fold over collar, seven buttons down the front, extended button tabl detail at the cuffed short sleeves, and is semi-sheer.
The Elida Blouse by Theory is anything but a boring button down blouse. This satin top has four buttons going down the front, a fold over collar, short sleeves, and balloon edges at the cuffs. You could wear it to work and then out for a date or drinks afterwards.

The Drop Sleeve Blouse by Mint is a fun and sassy blouse. We love the jewels at the V-neck, which give it (and therefore you) a bunch of personality. There's also gathering at the back of the neck and at the empire waist and short balloon sleeves. It's also 100% silk and lined.

If you are interested in a brighter top, the Besette Top by Theory is a pretty option. This satin top has pleating at the scoop neck, balloon edges at the cuffs, and short sleeves. It's available in grape and lapis, two colors that will definitely stand out in a crowded room.
The Over the Rainbow Top by Sky is a sexy top that has ruching throughout the bust and front, deep V-neck, and cap sleeves. We adore the rainbow rhinestone accents at the empire waist. They are so pretty and fun and are what make this blouse extra special!

Here's a cute top that you can buy in a couple of different colors. The Carmela Top by Velvet is a semi-sheer jersey top with ruching at the front, seam detail at the bust, unfinished bottom hem and cuffs, three buttons at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It's available in black, chestnut, snow, and loubelia.
However, if you like this top but want something that is a little longer, there's also the Tenile Tunic by Velvet. It's practically identical, but it's four inches longer, has long sleeves, a boat neck instead of a crew neck, and there are five buttons at the cuffs instead of three. It's available in the same four colors.

If you wish you were more curvy, the Lilly 3/4 Sleeve Top by C&C California is a good option for you. The double strand tie at the waist will help give the illusion of curves. This top also has a wide neck with ruching and ribbed banding, ruching at the back, and 3/4 length sleeves. It's available in faded black, rosemary, and pomegranate.
The Zoe Top by Ella Moss has such bold colors that it probably isn't for everyone, but we love how fun it looks. Anyone wearing it probably has a sassy personality! This blouse has gathering and elastic banding at the wide neck, elastic banding at the cuffs, and short sleeves.
