We adore the floral/paisley pattern on the Printed Cinch Tank by Free People. This top has a scoop neck, embroidered mesh panel and ruching at the top hem, gathered elastic at the empire waist, an unfinished shirttail hem, and crochet trim at the adjustable spaghetti straps.

The T Back Tank by ADAM is great because you can wear it with a skirt or jean shorts. It's very versatile. There are domed metal beads, metal rings, and metallic stitching at the scoop neck, racer back, and arm openings, chain fringe at the one inch straps, and a shirttail hem. It is also lined and 100% silk.

The Bohemian Princess Top by Blue Life is not for everyone as there's no way you could wear a bra with this top, but it's unusual and looks incredibly comfortable. It has braided trim at the V-neck, braided tassels at the split back, a surged edge at the handkerchief hem, braided spaghetti straps, and draping at the back. It is double layered.

The Cascade Top by LaROK is a cute baby doll tank with different colored tiered at the handkerchief hem that we love. There is also ruffle trim at the crossover V-neck, fleece at the bodice, ruching at the empire waist, an exposed back zipper, and adjustable spaghetti straps. All but the fleece is 100% silk, and it is also lined.

What makes the Verlaine Tank by Twenty8Twelve is that there are 17 hidden snap closures going down the front. You can snap them all or leave a few at the top undone. It also features two vertical seams at the front, a topstitched vertical seam at the back, and 1.5 inch straps. It comes in two colors, emulsion and machintile.
We have loved two-toned tops for many years, and the Breadth Tank by Madison Marcus is no different. This cute tank has ruching and contrast canvas banding at the scoop neck, the same banding and bow detail at the T-back, and 1/2 inch straps. It is 100% silk and available in two colors, posey and nude.

We adore embroidery in our summer clothes, so the tonal embroidered stripes of the Becca Top by Ella Moss appeal to us. There is also a scoop neck, ruching at the bust, ruffled tiers at the racer back, and two inch straps. It is 100% silk and has a jersey lining.

The Wessen Tank by Twenty8Twelve is unique because of the knot at the bodice overlay. We can't recall seeing anything similar to this, at least in recent memory. This tank also has a scoop neck and one inch straps.
