It’s time for summer tops!
Whether you prefer your shirts blousy or structured, sheer or solid, you can capitalize on this summer’s trends to find the right look for you.
The nice thing is that many summer tops pair well with cotton pants or a fitted skirt in a pretty print — or your favorite shorts or jeans. Many summer blouses can dress up just as easily as they dress down.
Here are a few to look for this summer:
Feminine and light
Lightweight fabrics are the way to go during the summer months, and this summer feminine, flowing tops are the perfect look. Muted pastels are in, as is basic white. The nice thing about a lightweight blouse is that you can opt for sleeveless, short sleeved or long, billowy sleeves without being too warm.
Look for tops that have something special going for them — something that draws the eye — whether a ruffle, drawstring, buttons or a fun print.
This cute peasant blouse from Alberdi meets several of those criteria!
Lace is perfect for summer and pairs well with other fabrics. While sheer is in this summer, there are plenty of lace tops where you can leave the house feeling cool yet covered, such as this one from Zadig & Voltaire.
Speaking of pretty prints and patterns, they are in this summer for tops and bottoms. A floral print in bold colors or something asymmetric in its pattern will keep the top looking fresh and updated.
This silk caftan blouse from Roberto Cavalli incorporates the soft, flowing lines of this summer with a semi-sheer silk in baroque prints.
