If there’s something I think I’ve mastered in my closet, it’s those everyday staple tops. The slinky silk basics, feminine linen finds–things that can speak for themselves or look just right under a jacket.

I’m personally always drawn to a great strap and charming details that elevate. My favorite is definitely something with a straight across/square neckline and itty bitty straps. However, I also can’t say no to a sleek ruffle and love a chunky statement strap, too. A good example is my Ganni top to paint a better picture of how chunky we’re talking. I also am still so into smocking since I met my favorite dress last season. When it’s done the right way, it’s super chic and flattering.

I recently added two new tops to my closet (this 7 For All Mankind top and the Birds of Paradis tank I’m wearing… this one just sold out, so sorry!) because out of anything this time of year, they are something I always rely on when I don’t know what to wear. They’re so foolproof and easy. I realized I have so many saved as of late, so wanted to share the wealth in case you’re needing great summer staple tops yourself. Just team with your favorite denim and an easy summer slide and you’re all set. There are so many great options right now, but here are the highlights…
