The Shirt Snob loves this print, probably because we were recently looking for black and white clothes, and this would have been perfect. The Floral Satin Blouse by Tracy Reese is 100% silk, has an empire waist, a belt that can be tied in the front or back, a V-neck, and short sleeves.

Here's another kimono top we should have shown you during our Kimono Week a few weeks back. The Courtney V Kimono Top by Ella Moss has banding at the V-neck, elastic banding and a tie at the very low waist, short kimono sleeves, and grommet detail at the neck and tie. It's available in three colors: mink, black and vanilla.

We love this next blouse, it's sensuous without being too over the top. The Nicolette Empire Waist Tie Top by Miguelina is a silk top with lace trim along the V-neck and down the front. There is also ties at the sleeves, a tie at the empire waist, and ruching at the waist and short sleeves. If you like this blouse, you may also like the Loriel Chantilly Lace Top, also by Miguelina.

Now that winter is on its way, we can pull out the velvet tops! Here's a beauty, the Ferna Top by Diane von Furstenberg. This semi-sheer shirt has a velvet yoke, a deep V-neck, ruching at the bust and shoulders, cap sleeves, and a tie at the back. We think it's a very flattering look for many body types, a great find for almost anyone!

How about an Ella Moss day? First, we found a fun one, the Lila Colorblock Flutter Sleeve Top. This blouse has a deep V-neck, contrast banding at the neck and around the empire waist, short flutter sleeves, and a very uneven bottom hem. It is available in rasberry and olive. A wrap dress version is also available in rasberry and olive as well as a skirt version in flame and olive.

The Shirt Snob seems to be fond of almost every top by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent. This next one is no exception. The V Neck Blouse is a 100% silk to with a deep crossover V-neck, cap sleeves, gathered banding and embroidery detail at the neck, and a rounded bottom hem. It hangs past the hips too, and is available in rust and silver.

This next top isn't super special, but we like it's simplicity. The Drew Scoop with Tie in silver by Ella Moss is great because it'd look good with a variety of different bottoms, like skinny jeans or leggings. It has a large scoop neck, sleeves that fall just beneath the elbows with elastic at the ends, a tie underneath the empire waist, and ruching at the waist. It's also long, falling below the hips. It's so loose and flowing, and it looks very comfortable! You may also like this blouse in navy or the Drew Mini Dress in black and navy.

You all know how much the Shirt Snob loves Catherine Malandrino. She has such great blouses that are beautiful and very wearable. Here is yet another great one from her, the Bubble Blouse. Made of 100% cotton with 100% silk accents, it has a scoop neck, a large removable belt, bubble hem, and short sleeves. The print is very interesting too, with great colors for fall.

Today's kimono blouse comes from one of our favorite designers, Ella Moss. The Sabrina Kimono Top has a V-neck, an empire waist with a tie in the back, ruching at the front, 3/4 length sleeves, and braided moleskin banding at the neck. We love the braiding, it really makes this top stand out and is very pretty. It comes in three colors: mink, vanilla, and black as well as in a dress version.
