Don't you think that one of the most basic articles of clothing for women is the top? But what are the different types of tops around this season? It can all get slightly complicated as, like us, most women boutique clothing stores stock a wide range of shirts. Here, you’ll get the answers to these questions and a list of the 10 types of tops every woman must have.
1. Camisole Blouse
A silk or lace camisole blouse can be paired with your favourite pair of jeans, leather belt and boots, or worn underneath a jacket. For a transeasonal piece try our Alice Camisole, made from a lightweight linen and cotton lace trim.
2. Basic White or Black Scoop-Neck Tee
A white scoop neck T-shirt is one of the most universally flattering casual tops a woman could wear. You can wear it with jeans, shorts or skirts.
3. Button-Down Shirt
As an everyday staple, a button-down shirt is usually paired with trousers or a pencil skirt. But it also wears well as a casual top when worn with jeans, denim shorts or a skirt. Even more fun and versatile is switching the piece around and wearing the buttons down the back like our Alice Top.
4. Tank Top
Simple and comfortable, the tank top is casual, cute and stylish. You can pair it with jeans, skirts or shorts for an effortlessly casual look. We love Jac + Mooki organic cotton pieces for our fun and funky casual wear.
5. Tie-Waist Top
Great for the office or casual outings, the tie-waist top or crossover top helps to accentuate your shape, particularly your waist. Wear one with skinny jeans and heeled shoes for a slimmer silhouette.
6. Shell Top
A shell top is usually a sleeveless, slip-on collarless blouse that’s worn to complement a more interesting piece, such as a jacket, statement skirt and pants.
7. Wrap Blouse
A wrap blouse is a stylish top that is super comfortable and helps to hide unsightly bulges or signs of bloat. This top pairs well with both jeans and slacks.
8. Patterned Shirt
A fun patterned shirt can be worn under a light jacket for work. You can also wear it with a denim or leather jacket for a feminine, sexy and edgy look.
9. Statement Top
A top meant to be worn for special occasions, a statement top is festive, fun, frilly and fabulous. Wear it to raves, concerts, or holiday parties. Whatever the occasion our Olivia Top is our statement top of the season.
Loose-fitting, simple and chic, a tunic sits on your hips and looks amazing with skinny jeans, shorts and leggings. Get a slightly longer one and you can wear it on its own.
