I’m giving the tough rock chick vibe a break with an assortment of pretty tops. Some are great for business casual and relaxed settings, and a few are fab for a fancy night out. 

  1. Catherine Malandrino Melody Blouse: I adore the cut of this blouse. Elegantly voluminous with a great amount of structured drape. It’s short, so ideal with a skirt, or blousoned over trousers or jeans. 
  2. Maison Scotch Toile de Jouy Shirt: Pretty in pink. A soft shirt that glides off your curves and looks fab half-tucked. 
  3. Dolman Sleeve Cardigan (Juniors): More pretty in pink, although white and taupe are other options. The cropped cascading cardigan looks a lot fresher than the longer silhouette to my eye. 
  4. Trouvé Cold Shoulder Sweater: Cool, covered and alluring. 
  5. Topshop Geometric Lace Blouse: A vintage vibe worn best with modern pieces. 
  6. Wildfox London Heart Sweatshirt: Fab Flashdance flashback. 
  7. Edista Dash Top: The elusive V-neck! Sweet flutter sleeves and fun back pattern. 
  8. Evans Embellished Cold Shoulder Bubble Blouse (Plus): Sultry and comfortable. Perfect over a black pencil skirt. 
  9. Sleeveless Drape Front Knit Top (Plus): An easy layering piece for under a jacket, or fab on its own with a pair of shorts. 

I enjoy wearing a soft pretty top as much as wearing a stiff masculine button down shirt. It’s nice to have the option of feeling great in “opposing” silhouettes and mixing things up. How about you? Do you enjoy wearing pretty tops?
