Reiss Broderie Blouse

This white blouse by Reiss is so feminine and pretty. I love the added drama with the subtle puff sleeves and scalloped trim. The elbow-length sleeves are perfect for transitioning between seasons. It’s also really lightweight and breathable so it will cover your arms, but keep you cool too. This fabric is just so beautiful and perfect for summer. Style it with white jeans like I did or wear it with your favorite traditional blue denim jeans or shorts.

Staud Asymmetrical Top

How cool is this asymmetrical top by Staud?! It’s such a statement-making top that’s unexpected and unique. It’s a dressier white top for summer but it would be perfect for dinner or GNO. It has an asymmetrical hem and shoulders, draped cowl neck, a tie waist, and an open side. I love the one exposed shoulder for adding a little sexiness. It’s a cotton poplin material that’s very lightweight and breathable.

Hevron Button-Down Shirt

This top by Hevron is such a cool basic-with-a-twist. Even though this post is all about statement tops, I wanted to give you one option that’s a little subtler but is still very chic. If you already have a classic button-down shirt in your closet, this top would be a wonderful new addition. It has concealed buttons down the front, it’s cotton poplin so it’s super lightweight and doesn’t wrinkle easily, and it has cool button tab cuffed short sleeves. The fit is more of a cropped, straight fit that’s body-skimming (not fitted) and very flattering.

Love These Sleeves!

If you’re looking for a statement top that’s not TOO over the top, this one by English Factory is a great option! I love the ruffle trim and sleeves and that it looks and feels more like a tee than a top or blouse. This is super easy to dress down with denim and sneakers or dress up with a skirt and heels. Oh, and it’s only $75!


Subtle & Oversized

For something with a bit more volume, try this gorgeous top from Anthropologie. I love the swing top style and that it won’t cling to you on those hot summer days. The sleeve length is perfect if you don’t like showing your arms. And I love the pleated details too!


Ruffled Up

This pretty blouse lays beautifully and has the prettiest ruffle details on the arms and neckline. It comes in petite, regular, and plus sizing, multiple colors, and it’s under $90!


SO On-Trend!

Vests and vest-style tops are very on-trend right now! This top by Sunday in Brooklyn is such a cool take on the trend. I love that you can wear it buttoned all the way up or unbuttoned and folded over (click through to see it both ways on the model). This is a great way to try this trend at an affordable price (only $78!).


Date Night Must

I just ordered this top in a different color but I LOVE the white too! This Staud top is a dramatic, statement making piece but you can dress is down with jeans or shorts to make it feel more wearable and casual. I love the big pleated details and flattering cinching under the bust. It would be perfect for a GNO or date night!


Flattering Ruching

Another flattering detail? Ruching! This ruched Veronica Beard top is SO chic and easy to style for summer. It has a flattering v-neckline, on-trend front slit, and it’s cotton poplin so you’ll stay cool.


Affordable & Chic

Free People comes out with at least one new white top every summer that I love! This one might be the winner for this summer…I love the embroidered eyelet details, flattering neckline, and scalloped hem. The fluttered elbow-length sleeves are also perfect if you don’t like to show your arms.


SO Elegant

How beautiful is this top?! I LOVE the off-the-shoulder neckline and dramatic bow detail. It’s a body skimming top that can easily be front tucked or left out. I’d style this with everything from denim shorts to skirts!


All Things Feminine

Alice + Olivia is one of my favorite brands for super high-quality blouses I know I’ll wear for years and years. This white Alice + Olivia blouse has so many gorgeous, feminine details. The billowy sleeves, pretty lace, and embroidered trim details are all so beautiful. It is linen, so the wrinkle-factor is something to consider. But it’ll be SO lightweight and breathable for summer.


Airy Cutouts

Rails is another one of my favorite brands for high-quality pieces! This top has an embroidered floral pattern that’s so beautiful and unique. It’s a cotton poplin material so it’ll keep you cool and also won’t wrinkle easily (perfect for travel).
