The Best White Tops For Summer (& Fall) That Really Make A Statement

White Statement Tops!

Who loves some fashion drama? I do. I do! I’m bringing on the drama specifically focusing on white tops. In this post, we are going next level… with statement tops. These will be perfect to throw on with jeans or shorts and look super chic through the end of summer AND right into fall. I don’t know about you, but I love getting a new white blouse that’s beautiful and crisp…it’s just so classic and an easy way to pull a thoughtful outfit together, without much thought at all. A white top is also one of the key items on my wardrobe basics checklist.

I share basic and chic white tops to complete your summer wardrobe here.

Maje Embroidered Cotton Blouse

This white blouse by Maje is so feminine and pretty. I love the added drama with the puff sleeves and oversized collar. The elbow-length sleeves are perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. It’s also really lightweight and 100% cotton so it will cover your arms, but keep you cool too. The white straight-leg jeans are ankle length (~27-inch inseam), have a raw hem, and are super high-quality denim. No see-through issues at all! Can you wear white jeans through fall and winter?  You sure can!

Statement Sleeve Tee

The star of this look is the white, pleated sleeve tee by See By Chloe. I love the billowy sleeve…it’s unexpected and exciting. See how a statement top can take a simple pair of shorts to the next level? The exact top I’m wearing is unfortunately sold out, but I linked a similar option above that I also own and love. These Marissa Web shorts are perfect for summer to wear now but add a blazer or lightweight sweater to the mix and you’re ready for fall too.

It's All In The Details

I just purchased this gorgeous floral embroidered top but haven't had a chance to shoot pictures wearing it just yet. Let me tell you...it's stunning! There are tiny pearls around the cuffs and neckline that are so pretty and the scalloped hem is the perfect unique detail making this top a statement piece for sure! It does run small so I'd size up one size.
2

Not Business As Usual

This is definitely not your all-business buttondown. It's kinda sexy with the asymmetrical, off-the-shoulder neckline and thin strap without being over the top. It reminds me of the Maje white button-down blouse I wear on repeat (I'll link that one too)!
3

Comfy Like a Tee

I love the hem and lace sleeves on this Free People top. It also has an adjustable, tiered tie-back. If you're looking for an elevated white top with the comfort of a t-shirt, this is the one for you!
4

Eyelet Beauty

I'm a fan of the elbow-length sleeves and beautiful eyelet details on this blouse. You can leave it buttoned up or open a few to show a bit more skin. Plus, you all know I can never say no to a puffed sleeve!
5

Ruffles & Lace

Veronica Beard does it again! Just trust me on this one. I love that this elevated t-shirt has ruffles, lace AND a puff sleeve.
6

Drama!

I could see this top on a beach vacation with some high-waisted shorts or jeans and then I'd wear it in the fall with some faux leather pants and booties. I love the dramatic oversized sleeves and tie front detail.
7

Classic Crop

Frame is one of my favorite blouse brands. I know some of you may shy away from traditional "crop" tops, but when worn with high-waisted jeans, shorts or pants there won't be any tummy showing. I love the twisted front!
8

Subtle & Oversized

If you're looking for a white top that still makes a statement but is a bit more subtle, this is a great option! It has such a flattering neckline!
9

Airy Cutouts

This is another more subtle option...it has feminine cutouts and it's super lightweight. If you're worried about the cutouts just be sure to wear a bralette under this one.
10

Party In The Back

This top has a lot going on...but it's gorgeous and I love the sexy cutout and bow in the back!
