Must Have Tops This Summer
1. A Hot Sheer Top
The sheer style is big this season. The fun part of the latest sheer tops trend is you can show off your skin the way you want! The easiest way to rock this trend is to team it with a matching tube top. Or you could wear it over a gold or black bustier top or a bandeau and wear a cardigan over it to just let some skin peak through.
2. A Ruffle Top
Give your simple outfits a boost of style with ruffles. Keep in mind the placement of the ruffle to create an illusion of curves and volume wherever required. Try ruffled sleeves and ruff collared tops, too. Team it with a pair of well-fitted jeans to balance out the look.
3. A Metallic Top
Metallic tops are eye-catching. You can go for fully metallic or sequin tops or a bit of embellishment here and there. The best way to style such a top is to let the vibrance be the focal point of the entire outfit.

Embrace your jean addiction with a lazy slouchy tee. Perfect when worn with a simple ripped jeans or shorts, you’ll never want to take these off. You can also pair one with embellished jeans for a more glam look. This is my favorite in the list of must have tops for summer.
