I’ll just start out by saying that silk tops are not a cheap category. There’s nothing too outrageously splurgy here (at least by my—admittedly skewed—standards) and I did manage to unearth a couple of reasonably-priced choices, but for the most part, a nice silk blouse will cost you. But I think they’re worth it, because it always feels a little bit special to be wearing silk, even if you’ve got no bigger plans than lounging about at home. Why not let’s start with this divine leopard print?
I sort of wanted to save this red top for a “Things I bought, things I want” post, because I do want it a lot, but I haven’t bought much lately so it goes in here. Just such a good red, and nice slouchy fit.
Well-priced, deeply office-worthy, covertly kind of cool.
This popover has all the crispness on a freshly-ironed white button-down shirt.
This shirt comes in a few colors—including always-handy black—but I like it best in this vibrant red.
A pretty dark floral, just how I like them.
Small touches—the deep cuffs, the covered buttons—make this an elegant option.
Another pretty floral print—because spring will come, eventually.
I’ve thought about buying this easy top so many times: it just looks like a good solid option for those days when nothing else in your closet seems quite right.
The gentle gathers on this blouse make it quite feminine.
This top is a bit girlier than I usually go, but I like it.
I just really love this green.
I saw a striped shirt like this from Isabel Marant recently that costs about twenty times what this one does.
I like the very subtle stripes here.
Another top I surprise myself by liking because a high neck like that is usually not for me. But I think the smocking is a cool touch.
I love the graceful neckline here.
In case you missed it: my post last week on tops with great prints.
