Elevate Your Everyday Look: Casual Women’s Tops for Summer

Dressing in a casual manner is what I do most of the time. However, I try to pick items that have design details to create visual interest. Just because I’m comfy doesn’t mean I don’t want to be stylish. So, here is how you can elevate your everyday look with casual tops.

Here is Part 1 of this post in case you missed it yesterday:

11 Lightweight Summer Tops With Sleeves That Are Affordable

Casual Summer Tops The Elevate Your Everyday Look: Crochet & Lace

Crochet and lace trim are popular this year. I love the crochet trim across the top; it is so pretty. This top will get you a ton of compliments, and it will be comfy to wear all day long.

If you look closely, you will see my nude-colored bra. This is the bra I always wear, and I never have to worry about it showing through my tops.

I’m wearing a medium in this top, although a large would have fit me better. I love the top, so I think I’ll reorder it in large.

Elevate Your Everyday Look: Ruffles

Ruffles were never on my radar before. I steered away from them and thought they looked too girlie. However, lately, I’ve embraced some ruffles, and this top is an example of why.

These ruffle sleeves are so cute and feminine, and I don’t think they look like a little girl. They look flirty and cutesy, and I’m willing to be labeled that.

An easy way to elevate your everyday look is with accessories. The Kelly Statement Earrings and Michele Watch make the outfit look polished, put-together, and chic. The Michele watch is one that I watched to go on sale for years. I love the style and look of the watch, but the price tag is a little hard to swallow. I recently found this watch by Chico’s, and it looks very similar. You will get the same “look” at a more affordable price tag.

If you prefer to wear your tops loose, here is how it looks.

Colorful Tops For Summer

I love bright and colorful tops, so I was sure this one would stay in my closet. But, I feel the colors wash me out, and sadly, it is going back.

The top is available in different color combinations, so I may consider ordering one of the ones below. I think they would suit be better than this one. I’m unsure what made me choose this bright orange version since it isn’t a color I usually wear.

Here is the look from the back.

And here is how the top looks when not tucked.

Details Can Elevate Your Everyday Look

Unique details are the easiest way to elevate your look. Most of the tops have statement sleeves, but this top is unique because of the embroidered top.

This is a fun top that shows your personality. It has so many colors that you could wear it with almost everything. The tie pom poms are adorable, but you could snip them off if you thought they were too juvenile.

I’m wearing a medium, but it is too tight across my chest. If you’re between sizes, order the larger size.

Chic and Stylish Tops For Summer

The gauze look is in! I can’t say that I’m unhappy about this trend, especially since I don’t have to worry about wrinkles.

I immediately hung this top in my closet and ordered it in white. When I think of summer tops, this is what comes to mind. It is chic, and the ruffles are a perfect size.

I’m wearing a medium, but I ordered the white in a large. It is just the tiniest bit tight, so I sized up for the white version.

I hope you enjoyed my posts on summer tops. There is a lot to check out, and I hope you found something that struck your fancy.

    I’m not seeing any information on where to purchase these items. When I click on the item I don’t get any information.

  2. Would love to know where to get the shoes too! I love all the looks in this one.

  3. Marin Mattingly says:

    Tania – Those ruffles veer toward flounces, which aren’t as girly as what I think of as ruffles. Ruffles make me think of white dressy anklets with lace and other small lacey add-ons.

  4. My favorite is the Mexican babydoll top. Too cute.

  5. I appreciate you showing the items as they look worn but a real person. The sky blue top looks completely different on you (cute) than in the Amazon post. Thanks 😊

  6. I like the first one, the green one and especially the gauze one. I love gauze for Texas summers. If I wear polyester tops in the summer, it will be for church. It won’t be for a long period of time and I’m in the air conditioner. The high neck top is a no for me.

  7. Sherli Morgan says:

    Love these tops – they’re so pretty & fresh! You look so tall & thin! Looking great!

  8. Thank you for sharing such a variety of tops. I LOVE the gauzy sky blue one that is 100% cotton. I ordered two different colors that fit my color match pallet. These will be making a trip to Germany and Spain next month! Perfect! Happy Easter!

  9. I love the tops you feature today, but sadly would not wear any of them because the very short ruffle is so unflattering on me. It hits right at the largest part of my arm and emphasizes that width. Could you show some similar things with prints that have sleeve? It doesn’t even have to be a lot of sleeve – just a few inches and flat makes a huge difference.

  10. Dana Smithmier says:

    Great choices today!!!

  11. Catherine says:

    Gotta say I ordered those Kick Boot Crop Jeans from Walmart and they are a WIN. I am usually a size 8 and these fit perfectly. Bought them for a trip to Austin TX, and they looked very cute with a pair of saddle brown sandals with a chunky heel I got on sale from Sundance Catalog (also a win!). Looking forward to wearing them this summer! Good call Tania.

  12. Tania, I wonder if the problem with the top you think washes you out is actually just bothering you because of that high neckline? I think the colors are ok but you (and most ladies) look better showing a bit of flesh at the neck. This one looks like it’s choking you. All the others, especially the green, are beautiful on you. Thanks for showing all these!

  13. I think those itty bitty blue jeans are so slenderizing. Looks great! All the outfits look great.

  14. Vickey Vaughan says:

    You look so thin in the blue jeans. I really like the all the tops you modeled especially the Mexican print one.

  15. LOVE all the tops and the prices too. Thanks.

  16. you look great in the green top! cute white jeans, too.

    1. Susan, I love that color green!
