The Belinda Top by Joie isn't super special, but we really like the thick brocade banding at the scoop neck. There's also a brocade panel at the racer back as well as pleating at the front and back.

The Elmo Top by Dallin Chase is not one of our favorites because of the tie at the neck, but besides that we find it to be quite pretty. And we are sure some of our readers wouldn't mind the tie. This top has a chiffon drawstring and tie as well as ruching at the scoop neck, and it is lined. We like how the ruching is caused by the drawstring as it's much more natural than many other ruched tops. It's too bad that it's overpowered by the tie.

The Shirt Snob was originally drawn to the Pleated Tank by James Perse because we do love a black and brown combo. But this tank is also available in white with no contrasting color, and it's still quite pleasing, although a bit more simple. This top has banding and pleating at the empire waist, seam detail at the bodice, thick straps, a scoop neck and back, and a lined bodice.

If you want a good tank for fall, the Dlot Flower Jacquard Silk Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a great option. The body is silk and the knit trim is wool. The print is a cute floral and dot pattern as the name indicates. There's also eight buttons at the front, pleated ruffle detail at the empire waist, thick straps, and a scoop neck.

We know that Sky can look a little hoochie on some people, but if you can pull it off in a sophisticated way (or at least wear it only when you're going out at night), we think they are great additions to your wardrobes. The Sydonia Leather Belted Tank by Sky is a great one because it has the neatest black and white print that looks like branches and leaves. There's also twisted straps, a deep V-neck, and leather woven belt banding below the bust.

The Shirt Snob thinks that the Vermont Tank Tunic by Ella Moss would be the perfect addition to your work wardrobe this fall. It is made from a silk and cashmere mix, has a rolled bottom hem, ruching at the bust and back, banding at the arms and scoop neck, and no sleeves. It's available in black and wheat.

We feel that we've been showing you a lot of tops with knot detailing the past few months, but so many great tops with this are coming out that we really like. We just can't help it! The Lenoa Gauzy Whisper Tank by Velvet is yet another. This one has the knot detail at the bust as well as twisted straps and an unfinished bottom hem. It's available in four colors: black, nile, white, and zino. If you like this tank, you may also like the Lucy Gauzy Whisper Top which has similar knot detailing but also long sleeves.
The Cami Blouse by Rory Beca is special because it has wrapped banding at the scoop neck, straps, and back. This is definitely a look we like, unique without being weird. There's also ruching at the bust and back, and it is 100% silk. Available in three colors: navy, plum and tomato.

We tried hard to resist the bubble trend, but we can't help but think the Bubble Tank by Mason by Michelle Mason is cute. Sure, not everyone can wear it, but if you can pull it off, we think you'd love it. It is gathered at the neck and bottom, has spaghetti straps, and there's a tie at the back. It's available in teal and cream.
