The Shirt Snob has never been a huge fan of metallics, but we do like it on the Banner Tank by VPL. Besides the metallic bodice, there's contrast banding surrounding it, adjustable straps, ruching at the empire waist, and the VPL logo on a chain at the back.

What is so wonderful about the Pleated-Up Tank by Geren Ford is that it's a bit forgiving in the stomach area. This silk tank has a scoop neck, hidden side zipper, thick straps, and seam detail throughout. And we love the silver color!

We're written about the Charmeuse Dita Top by ingwa; melero before , but it's back, and this time with two new colors combos: champagne and wine. It has a hidden zipper, lace tie at the back, ruching at the empire waist, spaghetti straps, and underwire bra detail. If you missed it the last time, you're lucky that you can buy basically the same thing with fall colors!

The Silk Doupioni Pintucked Shell by Max Studio is perfect to wear under a cute jacket as it's pretty but not too overwhelming. Of course, it'd be great alone too! Made of 100% silk, it has a light sheen, is lightweight, has an empire waist with pintucking, crossover bust, braided raw edge trim, embroidery knots throughout, and is fully lined.

We love ruffles when they aren't over the top. The Penelope Top by Joie has ruffle trim at the bottom hem and straps. There's also three buttons and a keyhole at the front, ruching at the empire waist, and it's 100% silk. The leaf print is quite pretty and delicate too!

The Silk Bamboo Empire Top at Max Studio is such a sexy, flirty, and fun top, you're sure to have a blast wearing it. There's an empire waist with shirring, striping in the crinkled silk and bamboo, and thick straps so it's bra strap friendly. It's also silk lined.

If you liked the Button Tank by James Perse that we showed you last week, you'll love the Oxford Stripe Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs. This one is similar in that there are buttons attaching the thick straps to the body of the top. But this one also has a bias stripe detail throughout, button tab detail at the bust, an inverted pleat at the front, and is also semi sheer.

The Morainn Tank by Velvet is a very flattering top that we think would look great on most people. It has an empire waist with a drawstring and tie, ruching at the neck and back, and an unfinished bottom hem. It's available in three colors too: black, coal, and ember.

If you are still more interested in summer clothes than tops for the cooler months coming up, then you should consider the Bra Gather Tunic by Susana Monaco. This sexy tunic has a V-neck, ruching at the bust, two inch banding at the empire waist, and is available in black and midnight.
However, if you like this top but want something for fall, there is the Urban Gather Long Sleeve Top. Very similar to the Bra Gather Tunic, this top has long sleeves to keep you a little warmer. It's available in black, chrome, and midnight.
