Here is a staple that we all wear. The 2x1 Tank Top by Splendid is a ribbed tank top with banding at the straps and scoop neck. It is available in seven colors at the time of writing this and inexpensive enough that you can buy a few of them. Great for layering or wearing alone.

It seems to quickly be turning into a Velvet week here at Shirt Snob. We can't help it, a lot of cute tops have come out that are too great to pass up. Also, when compared to many other designers, Velvet is rather economical. With the issues with the economy, even less people are able to afford $300 or more on a single item of clothing. Back to the top at hand, the Renelle Slinky Rayon Top by Velvet is a simple top with a V-neck, gathering at the bust, and an unfinished bottom hem. It looks great with a skirt or jeans, so you can wear it at a ton of different occasions.
The Emilia Top by Velvet is not very forgiving, but if you have the body to wear it, it'll look wonderful. There's a V-neck and back, gathered crisscross overlay at the bust, ruching at the sides, contrast beaded appliqué at the shoulders, unfinished edge at the bottom hem, thick straps, and a lining.

It's always hard to see details on black tops, but this one has some nice ones. The Zahira Top by Velvet has ruching and a draped overlay at the bodice and tonal beading at the spaghetti straps which make it interesting. There's also a V-neck. Wear this tank with jeans or something more dressy, it'll work both ways.
The black and white tulip print of the Metallic Print Tulip Date Top by Juicy Couture is what drew us in.

It is 100% silk too.
