If you like lace, this next top is for you. The Lace Wrap Top by Corey Lynn Calter is an off-white, sheer lace blouse with short sleeves, a deep V-neck, metallic threading, and a black belt that ties at the waist. It's beautiful and romantic looking and can be worn in so many ways! Also available in blush at Anthropologie.

The Shirt Snob cannot pull off the deep V-neck look, but that doesn't mean we don't love it. If you think you can handle it, you might want to consider the Tie Front Wrap Top by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent. Made of 100% silk, this top has short kimono sleeves that are pulled back with a tab and button, and the tie in the front gives the blouse a gathered look. You could very easily wear a cute cami underneath if you don't want to be showing off too much skin.

We really love the Eve Wrap by Karanina because you can do so much with it. There is an extra long tie and multiple loops at the front, so you can use the tie at your waist, near the neck, on your neck, or other places. This wrap is also semi-sheer, has pleating behind the neck, and has long sleeves.

If you like the previous shirt, you will probably also like this one. The Greta Wrap Blouse by Ella Moss has the same contrast banding that the Lila Blouse did. However, this one is a wrap, with a thin tie around the waist that can be tied wherever you'd like it. The banding goes around the all of the seams except at the flutter sleeves. It is available in black and tabasco.

To finish up the week of kimonos, we've found another we really love, the Courtney Kimono Wrap Top by Velvet. There is a tie at the waist, unfinished edges at the bottom hem, 3/4 kimono sleeves, and banding at the V-neck, front and cuffs. It comes in three colors: rye, black, and shingle. You may also like the Blaine Kimono Sleeves Dress, also by Velvet.

Here's a cute wool kimono sweater that will keep you warm this winter. The Intricately Woven Kimono Top by Lauren Moffatt is semi-sheer with satin banding at the arms and sides, 3/4 length kimono sleeves, and a tie at the waist. We're sure you have a bunch of shirts in your closet that would look great with this!

There aren't too many kimono sweaters out there, but we've found a great one. The Kimono Sleeve Wrap Cardigan by LaROK is a perfect way to take this great look well into the cooler months. It falls well past the hips, has short kimono sleeves, a thick tie at the waist, and metallic detail throughout. Comes in three colors: bone, peat, black and desert. Supposedly Mandy Moore's worn this wrap as well, so if you're interested in dressing like the stars, you might want to consider this.

We love wrap tops. They work so well with so many different bottoms, and they are fun to wear too. Here is the Wrap Top by Rachel Pally. It has a deep V-neck, unfinished edges, long sleeves, and the tie at the waist. It comes in six colors that are great for fall.
