J.Crew Tie-Front Top
USERS SAID: "This top is pretty, light, and polished and looks great with jeans or a skirt. I love, love, love the buttons on the back and am thrilled that they don’t gap when I bend over. The fit of this top is great."
HELPFUL TIP: This blouse runs a bit large and some users recommend purchasing one size down.
Madewell White Tie Front Shirt
LOVED FOR: The roll-ready long sleeves and single chest patch pocket detail
USERS SAID: "This shirt is perfect for light wash jeans or cutoffs and wedges! I also have a big bust, which isn’t an issue at all. The shirt hits right at the top of mid rise jeans. It is a tad shear, but that shouldn’t be an issue with the right color bra. Perfect!"
Old Navy Relaxed Tie-Front Linen-Blend Shirt
USERS SAID: "I was instantly drawn to this shirt in store. Tried it on and I had to have it! The lightweight linen blend makes it perfect for the summer heat and the cute details had a flirty touch."
