We think the Robinson's Top by LaROK would be great either on it's own or under a nice jacket and would go well with many bottoms. The jersey tank has ruching at the front, shoulders, and neck, a V-neck, and balloon bottom hem. It is available in two colors, carbon and shadow.

We certainly don't want to forget those of you who are still living in warm weather, so we found a cute tank that you may like. The Shadow Floral Tank by Mint is 100% silk. It has an elastic empire waist, a beautiful floral print, with solid navy blue silk at the straps and neck. This tank would also look nice under a cute sweater or jacket for those of you who live in areas where this wouldn't work right now due to the weather.

The Shirt Snob loves polka dots, so we can't get enough of this next top, Sweetness Polka Dot by Joie. It has pleating at the front and back, ruching and lace banding at the bust, an empire waist, adjustable spaghetti straps, six buttons on the side, and a lining that is visible at the bottom. You'll definitely look sweet in this beauty!

Happy Monday readers! The Shirt Snob has finally gotten over our mini vacation, so we are back to full speed on this blog! We're going to start the week with one of our favorite designers, Catherine Malandrino. We found the cutest tank top that we have to show you all, the Laser Leaf Cut Sheer Babydoll. What really makes this top is the laser cut feature along neckline, hem, waist and as straps and sash (which ties in the back) in a heart shaped pattern. The waist is open where this design is located as well. There is ruching at the bust and below the waist, the bottom hem is uneven, and it is made of 100% silk with 100% cotton contrasts. It comes in two colors, soy and caspian, as well as the Laser Leaf Cut Dress. It is also very similar to the the Laser Leaf Cut V Top (aka the Chantico Embroidered Blouse), which we showed you last month.

Now, the Shirt Snob isn't too sure we love bubble skirts, but we really like the Bubble Tank by Generra. We know it's a little late in the season to be buying tons more tanks, but this one is simple and yet different, thanks to the ruching at the neck and sides that causes the entire tank to have folds of fabric. The spaghetti straps are adjustable, and it also has a balloon bottom hem. It comes in three colors, amethyst, sable, and black.

There are some really pretty floral tank tops by Rebecca Taylor that we really want to show you all. The first is the Gathered Cami in Aegean Sea. This top is 100% silk with a 100% silk lining. It has ruching at the bust, bows at the straps and at the bust, and rough edges along the bust and straps.
Next is the Wrap Flower Printed Chiffon Cami. This tank is also 100% silk and is lined. It has a tie at the bust, pointelle detailing at the V-neck, smocking at the back, and ruffle trim along the spaghetti straps.
Finally there is the Sexy Cami in Sunkissed. This tank has lace detailing along the V-neck and at the bust, a small bit of ruching at the bust, adjustable spaghetti straps, and smocking at the back. And it's also 100% silk as well and lined.

This next top sort of reminds us of our grandmother's couch, and for some reason it's a good thing. The Silk Checkered Top by Yumi Kim has a sweetheart neckline, an empire waist with a drawstring that ties in the front, four buttons that go down the chest, thick straps, and a flowing body. Then there's the pattern, a checkering of blue and other colors with flowers on top, with solid blue panel at the bottom. We think this would be a fun one to wear with your jeans.

The Shirt Snob is falling for all the black and white tops out there this season. We can't help it! Here is a great one if you don't want much color, the Sumi Blossom Cotton Tank by Marc by Marc Jacobs. This sleeveless blouse is semi sheer with a V-neck, hidden zipper in the back, and an empire waist. There is also twisted banding at the neck back and arms as well as banding and ruching at the waist. We really like the print though, wild white flowers on a black background with a hint of blue in the centers. If you like the print, also check out the Sumi Blossom Cotton Dress.

Here is a top that we think you could easily wear for years to come, it's got such a classic and clean look. The Empire Top by Wyeth is 100% silk, has a scoopneck and an empire waist. Buttons go down one side, there is ruching at the waist, and a ribbon ties at the back. It does blouse out a bit, so be sure to wear this one with bottoms that help thin you out.

Here is yet another fun tank from Diane von Furstenberg. The Dahlia Top is fun and flirty in design and we love the print, which sort of looks like a mock camoflauge. The little bow in front makes one thing of innocence, yet the cut reminds the Shirt Snob of a nighty. Naughty yet nice! It is 100% silk with a lining that is mostly silk as well. It has an empire waist, the drawstring we already mentioned at the waist, and there is disc detailing on the spaghetti straps.
