Don't let the picture of the Astrid Top by Trina Turk fool you, that is not one skinny strap and one thick one. Instead, the left strap has a tie at the shoulder. This tank also has a bold and colorful print, ruching at the neckline, and is 100% silk. It's a great top because it can work at the office under a blazer and then at night when you go out to drinks.

The Elvie Top by Trina Turk is the Shirt Snob's favorite, black and white! We love the bold print, and the faceted stones at the crew neck are a nice addition. We don't usually like such details, finding them garish, but in this case they only add to the top instead of taking away from it. There's also ruching at the bust, a single button and keyhole at the back, and a hidden side zipper. It is 100% silk and also lined at the bodice.
The Ruffle Neck Racer Back Top by Generra is a dainty blouse that looks great alone but can work with a cardigan or blazer just as well. It is ribbed with banding at the scoop neck and racer back, has ruffle trim at the neck and woven trim at the hem, frayed edge at he trim, and thick straps. It is semi-sheer, 100% linen, and available in canary, navy, and parchment.

If you are going somewhere warm this winter, we suggest the Keyhole Tank by C&C California. This striped jersey tank has a keyhole and contrast tie at the front, contrast ribbed insets and unfinished seams at the sides, and adjustable spaghetti straps that cross at the back. Available in three colors: goddess, sunrise, and navy.
We adore girlie tops, and the Organza and Lace Trim Cami by Walter is definitely girlie! This tank top has a square neck, empire waist, lace trim at the thick straps and top hem, a large tie at the back, and back zipper. It's also 100% silk.

The Shirt Snob usually pictures heavy clothes when thinking of cowl necks, but this doesn't have to be the case. The Felicity Racer Back Top by Ella Moss is a tank top with a cowl neck. It has a quilted velvet overlay, metallic embroidery, and ruching at the racer back, a built-in shelf bra, ruching at the fitted bottom hem, and one inch straps. It is available in sterling, black and beaujolais.

The ivy color and jacquard pattern of the Cecilia Camisole by Sunner are what really won us over. There's also ruffle trim at the top hem and spaghetti straps. It is 100% silk and also available in marigold.

Rachel Pally knows how to make simple looking clothes that are impeccably constructed and always look amazing. The Stephanie Top is no exception. It has a V-neck with ruching at the double layer bodice, gathered elastic banding at the empire waist, thick straps that cross at the back, and an unfinished edge at the bottom hem. This tank comes in three colors: neptune, black and granite.

The plum color of the Molded Cami Top by Shoshanna is a great way to stand out amongst the reds and blacks amongst the crown this winter. This top has criss cross seam detail at the bodice, ruching at the empire waist, thick straps, a hidden back zipper, and is lined. It is also 100% silk.

We are surprised that the Beyonce Top by Velvet doesn't come in more colors, but we really like it in seagrass! The color really pops, and it looks great with dark jeans like the model is wearing. This slinky top has a V-neck with gathering, draping at the front, thick straps, and an unfinished bottom hem.
