Your guide to summer black, part 2: tops
I frankly couldn’t find a whole ton of really good black tops for this time of year, and I suppose that’s a good thing: summer black looks best when mixed with crisp white, after all. But there are times when only a black top will do, and for those times, I bring you the following, like this simple but nicely detailed silk Rebecca Taylor top.
This wrap tank has really graceful lines.
I like the deep V on this tee.
The ruffles on this tank are sweet without being too cutesy.
The flouncy sleeves on this eyelet shirt up the drama factor just the tiniest bit.
I like the tiny bit of pattern and drop shoulders on this blouson-sleeve top.
And the eyelet at the hem of this peasant top is a nice touch. I’d wear it with my most beaten-up jeans.
A subtle, very feminine choice.
This butterfly top reminds me a lot of 7th grade—in a good way.
A peplum top that’d go with so much, from skirts to jeans.
The cinch sleeve here is somehow flattering in a way I can’t put my finger on, and I love the neckline.
And I like the ruffle sleeves here too.
