Well, we guess the Shirt Snob is just obsessed with Catherine Malandrino right now, here's another beautiful top that we are excited to gush over. The Open Knit Twist Front Cami is an intricately knit top with many patterns in the knitting. The fabric at the bust comes together in the center in a twist, hence it's name. It also has spaghetti straps that are not adjustable, an empire waist, and this tank comes down to mid-hips. It is made of 100% cotton, so it's very light-weight, perfect for the summer! If you like this top, you may also like the Open Knit Cropped Wrap, a long sleeved version also by Malandrino.

Hello readers! We hope you had a great long weekend! To start off the new week, here's a great cami by Juicy, the Ruffle Camisole. It has an empire waist with ruching along it as well as a small ruffle directly below. Near the bottom hem there is also a neat circular pattern. The spaghetti straps are adjustable, and there is a small bow directly below the right one. This top is also made of cotton, so it'd be great for all those super hot days we have coming up this summer.

Here's another cute top by LaRok, the Saskia Cami. Made of 100% silk, this top has an adjustable back tie with ball-bearing accents as well as spaghetti straps. A ruffle goes along the V-neck hem, and another ruffle goes down the center of the top. The Shirt Snob absolutely love the colors of this pattern, called water strokes. It definitely makes one think of water. Great for the beach! If you like this top, also consider the Criss Cross Babydoll Dress, which is the same pattern in a dress.

If you are thinking you don't want to be spending quite so much on your shirts right now, here's a nice tank top that isn't quite as expensive as many of the others we showcase on Shirt Snob. The Tuxedo Cami by Juicy Couture is under $100. It has ruffles that start below the empire waist, which also has a drawstring, as well as small ruffles at the top hem and down the front of the bust towards the waist. There is tiny metal disc detailing at the bottom tier of the top as well. The spaghetti straps are also adjustable. It comes in two colors, Mary (brown) and Carrie (white).

The Shirt Snob loves the next top, the Long Cami by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent. The embroidery is just amazing, so intricate! There's also eyelet detail throughout the body and embroidered scallop detail at the V-neck. There is smocked banding at the waist, ruching at the bust (which is lined), it is semi-sheer throughout the body, and it has spaghetti straps. We love how it's paired with some capris in the picture, but skinny jeans would work well also. If you're looking for a longer cami or tank for your vacation or spring wardrobe, definitely consider this one!

All our faithful readers know how much we love Ella Moss here. We just found a new top of hers that we didn't know of, so we thought we had to show all of you as well! The Nailhead Cami will flatter any body type. It has ruching at the bust and a flowing waist that leads to an asymmetrical hem. We love the brown, camel, pink, and turquoise studs at the bustline. This top also comes in black and silver. Similar items include the Nailhead Deep V in bark and white and the Nailhead Dress.

Here's a great top that will be great for spring, which is quickly approaching! It already feels like spring in the Northeast after all. The Princess Cami by Free People is fun and cute, yet still a bit naughty with the corset lace up in the front. There is also ribbon in the front that goes down towards the flutter drop waist. The collar and straps have lace, and the straps tie in the back. Pair this up with a nice pair of jeans and a cute necklace, and you are good to go!

Continuing on the "what we wish we could wear instead of what we are actually wearing" theme of the day, here are two tops that we would love to be wearing right now, both by Zola. First is the Ginger Top, with it's unusual but unique combination of Greek and 70s. There fabric criss crosses at the bust, the gold threading is edging the sheer shoulder straps and the flared hem. Across the empire waist is a stunning gold sequin band that makes this top stand out amongst everything it is near. There is also a hidden zipper on the side and a nylon lining.
Also check out the Ginger Tibet Top. This blouse is made out of delicate organza. It has a nylon lining, empire waist, cap sleeves, and a hidden back zipper. Again, what makes this top so special like the other one is the banding at the waist. This time, it's embroidery, detailed with sequins and beads, which is so beautiful and works so well with the honey color of the top. There are few tops in this color, so you will also stand out and look great in this camisole.
Happy Monday readers! The Shirt Snob is bundled up, trying to forget yesterday's snow and ignore tonight's big storm. We are hoping that wherever you are, you're warmer than us. We should be showing you a heavy sweater since that's what we need right now, but instead we're going to show you what we'd much rather be wearing, preferably while taking a stroll on a beach or sipping a drink with an umbrella in it at an outside bar. The Crinkle Chiffon Tank in sugar by Rebecca Taylor is so cute and girly, it'd be fun to wear as this model is, with pig tails. We always need to act so responsible in life, why not pretend you're a little younger once in a while? Made of 100% silk, this cami has an empire waist, ruffles on the straps, and lace detailing on the straps and lower hem. There is ruching on the bust as well as a tie bow, 5 inch slits at the sides, and this is all layered on top of a puff sleeve blouse. Also comes in creme brulee.

Here is the prettiest camisole we’ve seen in a long time, so we have to show it to all of you. The Sequin Disc Cami by Hale Bob is fun and flashy without being trashy. The front is made of silk and the back of viscose. It has an empire waist, spaghetti straps that are adjustable, and a V-neck. A bow ties at the waist, and there is beading detail throughout, as well as along the V-neck and the bottom hem. The Shirt Snob is a big fan of anything gold, so we love the sequins on this top. If only it was warm enough in the northeast to wear it!
