The Best White Tops For Summer

A white top is one of the pieces I buy every single spring/summer season. I love getting a new white blouse that’s beautiful and crisp…it just makes it feel more like summer!

A white top is also one of the key items on my wardrobe basics checklist! If you haven’t already found a perfect white top and crossed that item off the checklist (or if you do and just want something new), I’m sharing four white tops I’ll be living in this summer…and you’ll be living in them too! 

And, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see even more white top suggestions, including my WISH LIST white top!

#1 | Free People Top

This Free People top is perfect for those of you who don’t like to show your arms but still want to stay cool during the summer. It has beautiful lace details and a billowy fit. I love the way it looks tucked into jeans. I’ll be wearing it with jeans, skirts, and shorts all summer long! It is quite sheer as you can see, so you have to wear a nude bra or a cami or bralette underneath. BTW, this is one of my favorite views here in Telluride. This view is from 9500 feet in Mountain Village which is a short 15-minute gondola ride from Telluride or a 20-minute drive. 

If you missed my video on what to wear when it’s hot and you want to cover your arms, you can watch that here.

#2 | Scoop Top

I recently shared this gorgeous white top by Scoop in this post. It’s an easy and sexy top for summer! I love the big bell sleeves. They give the basic top some added flair and drama. I always say I love drama with my clothes…NOT my life! 😉 Another great thing about this top is that you have the option to wear it on or off the shoulders. And it is very lightweight so it tucks into jeans really easily! Oh, and it’s only $26!

#3 | Frame Top

I’ve had this Frame top since last summer and love it! I’ve bought a couple more tops by Frame since because the fabric and fit are amazing! This top is silk and can be worn with pretty much anything! And because it’s so lightweight, it keeps you cool and doesn’t add bulk when you tuck it in. Frame blouses are a little pricey, but worth every penny. I’ve worn this with shorts, jeans, and skirts. And it works perfectly under a jacket or blazer too!

#4 | White Tunic

Do you remember this gorgeous Free People tunic from last summer? I LOVE the length of it. It’s like a top/dress hybrid. You can wear it over a swimsuit or over some denim shorts like I am above. It has a pretty open back but you can still wear a regular bra. And the lace details are so pretty!

This shot above was taken from our houseboat on Lake Powell last year. I loved that trip so much we are thinking about doing it again this summer (since all of our other canceled). I will be sure to take you all along on our latest houseboat journey!! I can’t wait to go back to this magical place… 

By the way, if you want to find denim shorts that are not scandalously short… check out this post!
