I Own 16 Little White Tops, But These Are the 3 Best

As soon as the calendar flips over to May, I'm itching to bust out all of my favorite summery white tops. There's something so perfect about a crisp white blouse paired with jeans or denim shorts—a truly fail-safe combo if you ask me. If you're looking to upgrade your own collection, I have a few suggestions I think you'll cherish as much as I do. 

As much as I love a minimalist version, right now I'm gravitating toward white tops with interesting details. Staud's Luna Balloon-Sleeve Open-Back Cotton-Blend Top ($209), for instance, has a beautiful open back, balloon sleeves, and a peplum hemline that makes it an anything-but-boring option. H&M's Blouse With Eyelet Embroidery ($30) looks way more expensive than its wallet-friendly price tag. Below, I styled a similar top with jeans, Mary Jane flats, and an acetate bag, and I'll definitely be relying on that exact outfit for the rest of summer. Scroll down to shop my favorite white tops on the market right now.
