The yellow and grey color combination of the Chile Cross Back Tank by Rory Beca is interesting, but we really love the crossover detail at the racer back. This top also has a V-neck, draping at the sides, and spaghetti straps. It is 100% silk and also available in another print, wild thing.

The Gaia Top by Rachel Pally is a stand out tank because it is available in two bright colors, sorbet and raspberry. There's a scoop neck, pleating at the bust and empire waist, an unfinished edge at the bottom hem, a lined bodice, and spaghetti straps.

The beaded bodice of the Montego Tank Top by Ella Moss is eye catching with its splash of color, and it allows you to skip the necklace. This blouse has a scoop neck, gathering at the back, and is lined. Looks great with your favorite pair of jeans. Besides natural, it's also available in soot.
A friend of the Shirt Snob's was recently on What Not to Wear, and she had on a bright floral top when she saw her friends and family for the first time after her make over. It was not a top we would have been drawn to, and yet we loved it. So that is probably why we are so enamored with the Daisy Tank by See by Chloe. It's definitely not in the Shirt Snob's usual taste, but it's pretty and interesting, and we're just into floral patterns like it right now. This blouse has a ruched inset at the bust, knife pleats at the front and back, thick straps, a lined bodice, and a hidden back zipper. It's made from a silk and cotton blend.

Ella Moss once again gives us one of our favorite looks. The Costa Top has rope detail at the T-strap at the back which we find so interesting. There's also draping at the back, ruching at the scoop neck, gathered elastic banding at the bottom hem, and a built-in shelf bra. It comes in three colors, bay blue, black, and sunset.

The great thing about tops like the Racer Back Top by Mara Hoffman is that they are sexy without showing off more than you want to show. In this case, the back is split and therefore pretty open. There's also knot detail and draping at the back, a scoop neck, and a lined bust. It is 100% silk and availabe in four colors: white, green, black, and coral.

It's easy to stand out with the Ambrosine Top by Velvet because of its V straps. There is also knot detail at the bust as well as gathering and elastic. It is available in stardust, rosetta, and black. This top looks identical to the Beyonce Top by Velvet, which is also available in seagrass and jewel.

The Origami Tank by Jenni Kayne actually looks more like a butterfly than origami to us with its print, draping, and asymmetrical hem. This top has 1/2 inch straps, a V-neck, and is semi-sheer. It's made from a linen and silk blend.

We found one black and white top earlier this week, and we're happy to have discovered another. The Melbourne Cami by Ella Moss has horizontal stripes, crochet knit trim at the neck and hem, ruching at the bust and back, a keyhole and tie closure at the center of the bust, and spaghetti straps. Ella Moss usually has such fun colors, so it's nice to see something different from this designer.

The Belted Tank by Larsen Gray is a simple tank made quite elegant. It has a scoop neck and 3/4 inch straps which are pretty ordinary. But there's also a tie at the hem with beaded fringe, and this addition makes it something you can wear at so many places. You can dress it up with heels or keep it casual with jeans. It's made of 100% sustainable silk.
