We're suckers for twisted banding for some reason. No matter how many times we see it, we still love it. This is especially true for the Twist Tank by Rachel Pally. This tank has twisted banding at the scoop neck as well as pleating at the bust, an unfinished bottom hem, and one inch straps. It's available in three great spring colors too: guava, lime, and sunflower.

The Lou Top by Dallin Chase is a bit of a crazy look with the bright green and blue colors, but it's such a fun top we can't help but write about it. Made of 100% silk, it has a tie at the sequined bust, smocked elastic banding at the back, adjustable spaghetti straps, and is lined.

There have been a lot of tops that have come out in the last month or two that have a ton of beading by the neck. Honestly, it's not a favorite look of ours as these tops usually feel very clunky. However, here's one that we do like, probably because it's not over done. The Deco Beading Tank by Rebecca Taylor has beading at the scoop neck, pleating and two buttons at the back, an asymmetrical bottom hem, a lined bust, and is semi-sheer. The beads are pretty, and the blouse is pretty yet not overpowering.
The Double Layer Twisted Tank by Vince has a scoop neck, twisted balloon edge at the bottom hem and is lined. It's not a super exciting top by any means, but we had to write about it because we love the electric berry color! It's also available in white.

Here's a flirty little tank top for you! The Smocked Camisole by Juicy Couture is an adorable tank with crocheted balls at the straps, crocheted banding at the top and bottom hems, ruching at the bust, and smocked elastic banding at the back. It's available in cherry pie and chamomile lawn.

Miss out on all those cute sequined tops from a few months ago? Here's another stunning one that has just arrived. The Sequined Racer Back Tunic by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent is sequined throughot with a scoop neck, racer back, thin straps, and a lining.
The The New Camisole by Tart is not really all that new in design. However, they look really comfortable and are priced so you can buy more than one color. They have a scoop neck, 1/2 inch straps, and are available in black, crimson, iris, perri, and peacoat. They're great for layering too!

You can't get much more summery than the print on the Didi Top by Diane von Furstenberg. It has a lovely tropical feel that makes you long for white beaches and pina coladas. This tank has ruching at the sides and back, a ruched overlay at the bust, a surged edge at the bottom hem, spaghetti straps, and is lined. It's also 100% silk.
Sky can sometimes be a little too sexy for our tastes, but this top is just too pretty to pass up. The Kate Cream Crochet Top has crocheting at the bust and shoulder straps, ruching at the bust and empire waist, and a loose fitting bodice. We like how the crocheting is the same color as the rest of the top. Otherwise, we think it'd be over the top and not as elegant.

The Shirt Snob cannot believe we're liking tops by Lauren Conrad. We just pretend that she isn't on a show we can't stand (and we realize we're probably the only one not watching it under 40) and is just a random designer. The Leslie Tank is cute though! It's a simple tank with a scoop neck and thin straps that connect at the back. It's available in black and peacock green.
