Velvet has been producing some great slinky tops lately. The Kerstie Top by Velvet definitely fits that bill. Besides the slinky body, there is a crossover V-neck, ruching at the sides, cowl back, unfinished edge at the bottom hem, thick twisted straps, and a lining.

A slight bit of metallic makes the Flash Dance Pintuck Tank by Joie a fun top. There's also pleated banding and ruching at the scoop neck and at the back, and thick straps. Works great for day and night!

You'll certainly stand out in the Halo Strip Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs. This polka dot jacquard top has a V-neck, ruching at the bust, banding and pleating at the empire waist, pleated banding at the front, hidden side zipper, and 1/2 inch straps. It is 100% silk too. We adore the striped pattern, the colors go together magnificently!

The floral print is what drew us to the Floral Burnout Bold Tank by C&C California. This simple tank has ribbed banding at the scoop neck and arm openings and one inch straps. It is available in three colors: black, golden, and taboo.

The Tank with Neck Piece by Mason by Michelle Mason would be a boring top if it wasn't for the multi-strand banding at the scoop neck that is so interesting and unusual. There's also cutout detail behind the neck, a racer back, and thick straps.

The Chiffon Gabby Top by Cynthia Steffe has a semi-sheer organza yoke with piping that makes this blouse extra special. This isn't a feature we normally like, but it's done so well here. There's also ruching at the empire waist, a single button and keyhole at the neck, a lining, and a hidden side zipper. Available in ivory and onyx.

Elie Tahari has two new bustier tops that we adore. First up is the Charlotte Bustier. It is a metallic gauze top with pintucking at the bodice, a sweetheart neckline, crossover detail at the bust, spaghetti straps, a hidden back zipper, and a lining.
Then there is the Ramona Bustier. This taffeta top also has a sweetheart neckline. There is metallic embroidery throughout, pleating and molded underwire cups at the bust, ruched banding at the empire waist, a lining, and spaghetti straps.

The Layered Ruffle Top by Karen Zambos Vintage Couture is a 100% silk top with jacquard squares throughout. The bodice is double-layered, there's a V-neck and back, tiered ruffles at the body, and a double drawstring at the empire waist. It is also semi-sheer.
The Winnie Top by Rachel Pally is just the sort of top that the Shirt Snob loves. It is feminine and flattering, and the color is understated yet beautiful. This tank has a scoop neck, ruched overlay at the double-layered bust, ruffle trim at the overlay, ruching at the empire waist, and 1/2 inch straps. It'd be hard not to feel pretty when wearing this!
