I have a warm-weather style dilemma: On one hand, I’m thrilled by the thought of not having to deal with the complexities of layering for warmth, and of being able to throw on a breezy top without a second thought. On the other hand, it can be hard to navigate the nuances of simplicity. I no longer have the comfort of layers to fall back on, all my pieces have to be able to stand alone to shine. Here’s my solution: You really can’t go wrong with ruffles, puff sleeves, floral prints, dainty ties, and colors that pack a punch. Shop our favorite summer tops below!
