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.
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!
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.
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)!
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!
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.
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!
After a decade in TV news, a desire to help women "look pretty" sparked a career pivot. I started my own wardrobe consulting business, styling "real" women for many years. In 2014, I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We are now a community of well over 1 million dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40... who know that age isn't something you need to hide from. For us, life is just getting started!!
