We adore this next top, the Charmeuse Flora Top by ingwa; melero. It has leather banding and embroidered lace detail at the waist, as we've come to expect from this designer. But the rest of the top is a little different than the usual tops with ruching at the bust, an open back with tie behind the neck. There's also a hidden side zipper, a lined bodice, and no sleeves.
If you have a belly you want to cover up, the Lani Pleated Tank by C&C California is perfect for you. This tank has pleating at the scoop neck, thin straps, and a very loose fitting body. It's available in three colors too: cherry ice, scuba, and splendor.

We aren't sure why this next top is the word dress in its name as no one could get away with wearing it as a dress, but it does make a cute top. The Black Luxe Dress by Ella Moss has knotted detail at the center of the neckline, ruching at the knot, V-straps at the front that turn into criss cross double straps at the back, and a loose fitting body.
