I dig the pops of yellow on this embroidered Mexican-style top.

black top

This looks much fancier than it really is, and could be dressed way up.

henley top

And this henley top is deeply casual, and would look great with cutoff shorts.

A crisp white popover that’s super-light and soft.

This feminine floral top with ruched sleeves is an excellent candidate for print mixing.

stripe tee

I like how deep the V-neck is on this striped top.

poet blouse

A beautiful, billowy poet blouse with subtle striping.

Such a sweet Liberty print on this popover.

Another really good, quite graphic embroidered top.

black tunic

Just an easy, office-ready tunic for throwing on when you can’t decide what to wear.

This striped peasant top is pretty adorable with the pom-poms.

ruffle collar

A nice poppy green and ruffle collar make this one standout.

surplice popover

This floral top is girly without veering into prissiness.

Everyone needs a good hippie girl top once the warmer months hit.

drape front top

And finally: this drape-front blouse also looks pretty good in black too, but this seems like a nice summery hue.

    I had a top almost exactly like the J.Crew one that I wore to threads in the late sixties early seventies that was from India (as many of those tops were in those days and smelled of incense even after it was washed and worn and washed and worn––or wait, that may have been because of the hippie-dippie incense I burned––suddenly feeling very RosannaDannaDanna). I may have to purchase that blouse just for nostalgias sake.

    love the first one but… a viscose/ linen/ cotton blend summer top that’s dry clean only? I fear it will end the summer looking like a threadbare grey rag that’s spent half its lifespan at the cleaner’s.

    I bought the Madewell Wellspring popover a couple of years ago, and it is hands-down the most-worn item in my closet. I bought a backup this spring out of fear that they might stop making it!

    I own the last one (I am so proud of myself that I picked it out before you posted it…i must be learning from you!) it’s a bit boxy, but has nice drape. consider sizing down. 🙂

    If anyone is looking to get the henley, be forewarned it runs absurdly large. As in, size down by at least two.
