21 white tops to wear right now

10

This lace shirt from Sezane has a very 1970s Jane Birkin feel.

The woven yoke here gives this one an antique-y feel.

Just a nice, slouchy v-neck blouse in a lightly crinkled fabric.

A crisp poplin wrap top that looks more pricey than it is.

I didn’t really think to include tees in this selection, but this one has such a daringly deep V-neck that I had to.

A tie-neck popover tunic that looks just as easy as it does polished.

A slouchy boatneck that is both completely un-prissy and very feminine, somehow.

A faux-wrap top that looks like the easiest thing in the world to wear.

This is a little girlier than I typically go, but I like all of the eyelet details here.

A bare-looking top that actually doesn’t reveal very much at all.

A crisp tuxedo-neck top from Universal Standard.

The stripes at the sleeves of this peasant top are a cool touch.

I like the eyelet flounce sleeves here even though they’re maybe a bit much.

This shirt is from Grayson, which is a cheaper version of the brand Frank & Eileen, and according to several of you, they make a solid button-down. Here’s an even cheaper button-down, if that’s what you’re in the mood for.

Meanwhile, this shirt has a subtle dot pattern, which is cute.

I might have to acquire this peasant top, because it’s so simple in a really perfect way.

Just a really smart-looking shirttail tunic.

The grid pattern here keeps things interesting.

More pretty eyelet on a very sweet top.

A streamlined linen popover for wearing whenever.


And finally: this is the perfect combination of peasant-y and retroish.

    The gal in the last pic has her belt done the way I used to wear them in high school in the late 80s! Oh man, *everything* comes back around, huh?

    Since my hair turned white I’ve been leaning toward white shirts/blouses/tees. A few of these are going into my shopping baskets. At least on me, white hair does best with a whit/pale color top or a dark top––anything in-between makes me look dull. Or frumpy. Or maybe its just my imagination.

    Looks like Anthro is on quite the white, peasant-y roll this season….not sure the quality justifies the price tag there, anymore, (which saddens me way more than it should) but am going to check some of them out in person.

      I totally agree, Eloise. Love their dishes, but the clothes I’ve gotten — espcially the tops — seem overpriced for the one-season-only quality.

        Even the dishes (well, at least the stoneware/ceramic bowls from Portugal I’ve gotten for years – I’m a klitz and need to replace often – are made out of a totally different material now and don’t even “feel” right) have been cheapened.

    I believe I want those sandals. (https://www.anthropologie.com/shop/matisse-double-strap-platform-heels?category=shoes&color=014&quantity=1&type=STANDARD). I don’t generally spend a lot of money on white tops due the underarm discoloration I will eventually be battling on laundry day. On that note, bless you Oxyclean!

      Someone here recommended throwing in some baking soda in a white load and that has changed my life (sorry I don’t remember who it was, but that you!!). Works wonders on all my whites––even sheets and towels. The real test will be my laundry in Austin where the mineral content in our water is super high.
