Capsule wardrobes are well and good in theory, but the majority of us live in climates that change too frequently to adapt the idea of one minimal line-up of clothing that works all year 'round. What's suitable in the dead of winter just doesn't cut it come summer. Some call it a pain in the ass, but that's what we think makes fashion so exciting. Each season is a time for renewal. And where spring is synonymous with busting out our best dresses, summer is the season of busting out our best tops.
Every year, we're blessed with a new crop of summer blouse trends. 2017 saw the pervasive off-the-shoulder top and the return of the Hawaiian dad shirt, the year before that we were all about gingham and making a one shoulder a thing. This time around, we're seeing a variety of options: Between baby smocked tops and the perfect white shirt (there's not just one, by the way), it's difficult to choose which look to stay loyal to.
