The Diaphanous Blouse by Madison Marcus is a triple layer top, with each layer a different color and the bottom hem and back showing off the other layers. There's ruching at the neck, overlap detail at the open back, and no sleeves. It's very unusual, and we love the colors. It's available in flame and pacific.
Rarely does the Shirt Snob find a one strapped top that she approves of, but today we've discovered a great one. The Off the Shoulder Top by Panda Snack has a drawstring tie on one shoulder, a ruffle and elastic at the neck, a relaxed shape, and an Asian-inspired print that is beautiful but not too busy. It's also made mostly of bamboo and organic cotton and available in dusty coral and gunmetal.

This is a simple top, but it's so sweet and girly and looks like it's very comfortable too. The Organic Isabel Tank by C&C California has a drawstring at the neck and a keyhole at the bust, elastic banding and ruching at the empire waist, and it is 100% organic cotton as the name implies.
We love the details of the Ingenue Camisole by Catherine Malandrino. There is eyelet detail at the top and bottom hems, pleating at the bust and back, many buttons at the front, a double layer lining, and spaghetti straps. It's available in three colors: blanc, celery, and noir.

We are surprised, but here's the second Lauren Conrad top that we've found we liked! The Kiki Tankis a semi-sheer top with eyelet trim and ruching at the top hem and spaghetti straps. It's simple and cute. It's available in black, canary, and natural.

The Zizi Sophia Top by Iisli is 29 inches long, so it is a good top to wear with leggings. It has metallic stitching throughout, zigzag stripes and pointelle detailing throughout, pleating at the empire waist, twist detail and a solid inset at the bust, a lined bodice, and spaghetti straps.
Here's a girly top that you could wear alone or under a jacket for work. The Textured Tank at MaxStudio has shirring and ruching throughout, ruffles at the neck, sleeves, and hemline, thick straps, and is fully lined. It would also look great with any number of different bottoms, it's quite versatile.
The Shirt Snob wonders if she loves every colorblocked top. The Colorblock Top by Alisha Levine looks great with the three different shades of blue! It has pleated at the bust, elastic banding, ruching, and a double snap closure at the back, and a surged edge at the bottom hem. It's also 100% silk.
