We like the simple elegance of the 2 the Sky Top by Joie. This top has a metallic floral print, smocked elastic banding at the neck with ruffle trim, a surged bottom hem, adjustable spaghetti straps ,and it is semi-sheer. It is also available at Fashion Chateau under a slightly different name.
We sure are showing you a lot of white tops this week! Here's another, the Catalina V Strap Top by Ella Moss. This blouse has a hoop at the neckline with the straps coming from it in a V shape. They then go vertically back and attach to a tie. There's also an empire waist with smocking at the back and slight pleating at the waist.

If you like feminine white blouses but aren't a huge eyelet fan, we think you should consider the Tiered Date Top Juicy Couture. This top has tonal embroidery throughout that is subtle but beautiful. There's also seam detail and ruching at the waist, ruffle trim at the bottom hem, a tie and three buttons at the back, and thick straps. It's available in black and dial.

We love how elegant the Beaded Swirl Top by Foley + Corinna looks. Wear it with a dressier bottom or use it to dress up something more casual such as jeans. This tank is 100% silk with beading throughout, wrap detail at the front, boning at the bodice, an off center bow at the bust, a beaded strap at the left shoulder and a spaghetti strap at the right, four buttons at the back, a hidden zipper, and is lined. It's a busy top, yet is still looks simple and refined.

We think the Bold Jewels Silk Twill Top by Yoana Baraschi is so great because the floral beading trim at the scoop neck really pops out, especially in the grey color. This top also has slight pleating at the front and back, a three inch hemline, and vertical tie bow straps at the back that adjust the neckline. It's available in black too.

The Samella Top by Velvet has pleating from the neck that drapes through the body for such an interesting and forgiving look. We love it! There's also side ruching and chunky gem-encrusted straps for some sparkle too. It's available in two colors: greystone and black.
What makes the Tressia Sequin Top by Theory wonderful is that you can wear it on a date or under a blazer to work. This top has a box pleat at the front, sequined banding at the top and bottom hems, thick sequined straps, and a hidden zipper. It's nice to find a metallic top that isn't too flashy!

We love the fun color combinations of the Built-In Bustier Top by Mara Hoffman. Made of 100% silk, this two-toned top has underwire bra detail at the bust, ruching at the empire waist, spaghetti straps that cross in the back, a lined bodice, and a hidden back zipper. It's available in cream w/ navy, silver w/ turquoise, and navy w/ turquoise.

We find the details on the Tucked Tank by Mint Jodi Arnold stunning. This print top has intricate pin tucking at the front and back as well as one inch straps, a lined bodice, and a hidden zipper. We think the pin tucking goes quite well with the print on the body of the tank, taking it from boring to extraordinary!

The Modern Bra Top by Rachel Pally is great because it can be worn alone or layered. This tank has spaghetti straps, seam detail at the bust, and banding at the empire waist. It's also available in five colors: kelly, black, dove, midnight, and white.
