Delicate white tops like these couldn't be any easier to wear.

Another classic way to wear scarves as tops this summer is the triangle method like Claire wore here.


Note the revival of halter tops this summer—the '70s style is gaining more and more steam thanks to the pretty satin versions like the one Renata chose.

The silhouette looks especially good with the denim trends of the moment like white and light-wash jeans.

Tube Tops

The good old tube top is one of those summertime basics that are always in style. With loose jeans and mules, Sylvie's look here is '90s-inspired perfection.

Bustiers are another top micro-trend, and Ganni's denim-and-crystal version is seriously stunning. We love how Imani dressed it down for a casual vibe with jeans in a similar wash.

Puffy Sleeves

We can't talk about pretty tops without mentioning one of our favorites, puffy sleeves. The detail is far and away the most popular season after season, and Solène's gingham one is perfectly suited to summer.

Fact: You can't go wrong with a white puff-sleeve top and classic blue jeans. You just can't.
