I usually wait until the holidays to do my party in a top posts, since the kind of event they were inspired by—crowded gatherings where all anyone takes note of is what you’re wearing from the waist up—happen around that time of year. But there have been recent requests for a warmer-weather version, and it is suddenly nothing if not toasty here in New York, so let’s have at it. This pretty butterfly print would probably be too girly for me on a flowy-er shape, but I like it just fine on a button-down.
My favorite color combination + a chevron print = almost too much excellent.
I am similarly besotted by this lush floral: the colors are just so exactly right, somehow.
This is the loud, craven party in a top that gets shut down by the police, and that everyone talks about for years.
A really graphic, slightly retroish star print.
This silhouette has gotten very popular over the past few seasons, which I understand: it exposes an almost universally flattering part of the body (the shoulders) while covering a sometimes problematic one (the upper arms) all in one fell swoop.
