We've made it no secret how much we adore black and white tops, so we're glad to have found yet another. The Hand-Wrapped Shirred Shell at MaxStudio has contrasting trim sewn into hem of the scoop neck and the empire waist, shirring at the bib, ruching at the waist, and elastic trim at the back. It is sheer and made from a cotton and silk blend.

The embroidery at the bodice of the Charli Tank Top by Velvet doesn't look like anything else we've seen before. We're actually reminded of New World hieroglyphics! This tank also has ruching under the embroidery and a high back. We only wish it was available in other colors besides white!
The Verde Circular Pleated Top by Fiumicelli stands out because of its unique pleating at the bust. There is also a V-neck and back, hidden back zipper, and no sleeves. It is 100% silk. Wear it alone or under a jacket for the office.

The Vanished Corset by Nanette Lepore is a cute top you can dress up or down quite easily. It has a square neck, crossover detail at the bust, smocked panel at the sides, bow detail at the shoulder, an exposed zipper at the back, and ruching at the straps. It also has a lined bust.
The Ikat Floral Angel Top by Juicy Couture has a floral print that can't help but remind you of warm weather and beautiful days outside in the country. This blouse has a scoop neck and back, keyhole and tie at the bust, ruffles at the shoulder straps, tonal stitching, hidden side zipper, and a tiered bottom hem. It is also lined throughout.

Another Bohemian top to add to your favorites! The Love Letters Embroidered Top by Free People has embroidery at the bust that stands out in one color (storm), while blends in on the other (antique). There is also a keyhole at the bust, smocked elastic banding at the waist, script print at the hem, and twist and knot details at the wrapped cord spaghetti straps. It is semi-sheer as well.

At the front, the Racer Knot Tank by Larsen Gray is a pretty simple tank with a scoop neck and darting at the bust. But there is a multicolored embroidered banding that gathers the straps at the back that we adore. This top also has ruching at the straps and a lined bust. It's made from 100% organic cotton.

Here are two cute tops from T-Bags with similar names. First up is the Triangle Top with Rope Detail. It has a V-neck, ruching at the bodice, two inch ruched banding and covered elastic banding at the empire waist, an unfinished bottom hem, knot detail at the double rope straps, and a lined bodice. It is also available in two colors: poppy and black.
Then there is the Triangle Top with Piping. This print top has a V-neck striped woven banding at the bodice, ruching at the bust and empire waist, striped woven tie and draping at the open back, an unfinished edge at the back and bottom hem, and 1/2 inch straps that tie behind the neck. This one is available in two different prints.

Here is a romantic top for you! The Doubleweave Silk Ruffled Shell at MaxStudio has crocheted ruffled silk ribbons that look like flowers at the empire waist, shirring at the waist and bust, and baby ruffles and more crocheting at the arm holes and scoop neck. It is sheer and 100% silk. This blouse would look great alone or under a jacket, with a skirt or a pair of cute shorts.
The floral print of the York Top by Nili Lotan is different than others we've seen this spring, but that is not the only feature that makes this top special. There is a drawstring tie that crosses at the neck unlike anything we've seen recently, a deep keyhole at the front, and spaghetti straps. It is also sheer and 100% silk.
