Nanette Lepore is one of the Shirt Snob's favorite designers, so we are happy to see her designs at Shop Bop now. The Abstract Top by Nanette Lepore is a stunning top with a beautiful abstract print throughot. There's ruching at the bodice, cascading ruffles at the front, thick straps, contrast lining, a hidden back zipper, and it's 100% silk.
The leaf print is what makes the Juliaetta Top by Velvet special. Besides the gorgeous fabric, it also has a gathered neckline with ruching, a swingy body, this straps, and an uneven bottom hem. It's a simple design that looks more complex because of the print.
Here's something a little different. The Tiered Cross Back Tank by Rachel Pally has pintucked banding at the V-neck that we don't recall seeing on anything else, at least not recently. There's also an unfinished bottom hem, ruching at theneck, and spaghetti straps that cross at the back.

The Leigh Tank by C&C California is a sexy tank with elastic banding and lace trim at the top and bottom hems and adjustable spaghetti straps. It's available in four colors (grass, navy, rosebud, and white), and it's not too expensive so you can buy it in more than one color.
We like the back of the T-Back Tank by Alisha Levine. It's a little unusual but not complex or weird. The back is a racer back with different proportions than other racer backs out there. There's also a scoop neck, surged bottom hem, thick straps, 100% silk, and available in black and sherbert.

The Silk Swing Tank by Geren Ford is a fun top to wear because it's long, loose, and forgiving! Made from 100% silk, it has ruching at the bust and back, spaghetti straps that cross at the back, and an asymmetrical bottom hem. It's available in a bunch of colors too, but they are going fast!

The Jersey Tank Top by Splendid is one of those staples that everyone needs in their closet during the summer months. It has shirring at the neck and back, a scoop neck, and spaghetti straps. It's available in three colors (fuschia, daisy, and turf) and inexpensive enough to buy in all three colors!

The V Neck Tank by Rory Beca is nice because it's simple and cute. It has banding at the V-neck, ruching at the bust, two inch straps, and is 100% silk. It's also available in four colors: berry, black, milk, and silver.

The Silk/Cotton Voile Top by Hera has rosette detail throughout the bib and neck that end up as straps in thew back that we think are amazing and so beautiful. This graceful blouse also has pleating at the neck, a lining, and a tie at the upper back. It's definitely something you won't see anyone else wearing, so you'll be sure to stand out in this top!
The Lesy Top by Velvet is a new look from Velvet as we don't think we've seen them do a twist anywhere other than the bust. On this top, they have the twist on the bodice for a very unusual look. This tank also has a deep V-neck and is a beautiful blue color.
