The Kerstie Top by Velvet is versatile. Wear it with a jacket to work and then alone for drinks afterward. It has ruching at the sides, a V-neck, faux-wrap look, draping at the back, and twisted straps. It has doubled-up fabric at the body and is available in midnight, black, and kilm.
The color of the Faye Tank Top by LOVE YAYA is called mellow, and we feel it fits so well since this top is so laid back. There's banding at the V-neck, a patch pocket at the bust, zipper down the back, and no sleeves. It is also semi-sheer.

We saw lots of one shoulder dresses at the Academy Awards this year. If you like the look and want it in a shirt, we are quite fond of the Odessa One Shoulder Top by Ella Moss. It has ruching at the bust, shoulder strap, and at the empire waist, a built-in bra, and a loose fitting body. Looks great with slim fitting jeans or pants. It's also available at Fashion Chateau with all sizes still available.
The Racer Back Tank by A Common Thread is a little more interesting than other racer back tops because the back is woven to look much like a basket. This stretch silk top also has a scoop neck and triple half inch straps. It is available in ivory and black.
The Ruffle Back Top by Rachel Pally is one of those simple cute tops that we all need in our closets. It has ruffle trim at the V-neck and back and thick straps. It comes in four colors: black, apple, papaya, and white.

Ruffles at the placket are not a look we usually like, but it's not too overdone on the Ruffled Sleeveless Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs, so we actually like this blouse a lot. There's shadow stripes throughout with layered ruffle trim at the scoop neck and placket, unfinished edges at the ruffles, rounded hem, and six buttons at the front. It's also semi-sheer and available in beige and soccer pitch green.
The Tank Bandeau Top by Kerrigan by Daryl K is unusual because it looks like two tops in one. The outer layer has a deep scoop neck and scoop back, ruching at the side, and extra large armholes. Then the bandeau underneath has ruching throughout. It comes in two colors, black combo and light heather grey.

The Verde Circular Pleated Top by Fiumicelli is a great top to wear to the office under a cute blazer and then after work when you get drinks with your colleagues. It has a V-neck and back, pleating at the bust, a hidden back zipper, and no sleeves. It is also 100% silk.
If you like braiding, you'll love the Patricia Print Braided Tank by Juicy Couture. This jersey top has gathered elastic banding at the scoop neck and back, braided banding and three button detail at the bust, braided banding and pleating at the patch pockets at the hip, and adjustable spaghetti straps. We also think the swirl print is a lot of fun too.

The crocheted trim at the scoop neck and back of the Window Lace Camisole by Milly should make it look matronly. Instead, it has a cool vintage feel to it. This top also has pleating at the bodice, three inch straps, and is 100% silk.
