I always think of this time of year as the schmatte season: summer clothes are made of lightweight, often flimsy materials and end up trashed by Labor Day, so I don’t like to spend a lot on them. Fortunately, cute options abound, and for starters, I’m liking this fancied-up tee, which would be aces with an A-line skirt.
A striped popover in a nice light material that would look equally good tucked in or out.
This airy blouse is part of a new collection from Everlane, but it reminds me a little of an Isabel Marant top I own.
The ruffly bits here are nice and subdued, which is just how I like them.
This cowl neck tee is awfully simple and chic.
A pleat-neck top that you could dress way up or, alternately, wear with your most broken-in jeans.
I love the hit of red on this leopard print top—so graphic.
A peasant-y top with a bit of very appealing embroidery on the sleeves.
This drapey top looks very Maria Cornejo to me.
An organic cotton top that looks like it’d be great half-tucked into white jeans.
This poppy yellow floral with frayed details has a nice, relaxed vibe.
This rich blue top is a perfect, polished, throw-it-on-and-go kind of piece.
I really kind of want this slouchy polo shirt: it’s chic in an uptown preppy kind of a way.
A romantic little shirred tee that’d be cute under a blazer.
