Have you been looking for a few new tops to freshen up your wardrobe? White House Black Market has a great selection of women’s blouses that are upscale-casual, on-trend, and also comfortable to wear. Wait until you see how versatile these tops are – they can be styled for so many different occasions!
Why White House Black Market is One of My Favorite Mall Stores
My “CC” style of dressing most often involves jeans and a dressy-casual top, accessorized to suit the occasion. The tops at WHBM are perfect for this, so I shop at this store often. The quality is good, and there is always a great selection of women’s blouses in the latest styles.
Furthermore, I find that WHBM tops are extremely versatile. Most styles can easily go from the office to “after hours” for a dinner date or party.
Here are my picks for the cutest women’s blouses and tops currently available at White House Black Market. I tried on several others, but I am sharing the tops that I actually purchased. I will provide links to these throughout the post. Some of these were on sale, so if they become unavailable online, check your local store!
Shop with Me at WHBM – Women’s Blouses and Tops
1. Off-the-Shoulder Floral Top
This off-the-shoulder floral top was featured in a Spring mailer from White House Black Market. As soon as I saw it, I texted my red-headed BFF to tell her that she needed to buy this top. She has red hair and looks fabulous in green.
As much as I liked the top, I didn’t consider it for myself because I don’t wear green very well. However, when I saw it in the store, it looked much softer – like a pastel army green. I had to try it on, and once I did, there was no turning back!
The print is gorgeous, and it is so stylish with the off-the-shoulder design and statement bell sleeves. I love it with jeans, and it would also be adorable with white or khaki shorts.
Although I normally don’t wear flowy tops, this particular one is not cut super-large, so it is very flattering.
2. Cold-Shoulder Floral Top
This cold-shoulder tunic is comfortable and fairly dressy. It pairs well with jeans and heels, but would also be great with flat sandals for a more casual look. Dress it up with black leggings and heels for a night out.
My favorite thing about this top is the generously-cut high-low hem. This makes it a perfect grab-and-go top for an easy leggings outfit for when you are at a loss for what to wear.
Besides wearing as a flowy tunic, you could easily change up the look by adding a dressy belt.
This blouse would be ideal to wear out to dinner and a movie, or out for drinks with friends.
3. Sleeveless Graphic Dot Sweater
This sleeveless sweater is a geometric graphic print in classic black and white. The designs at the waist are especially flattering. They create a peplum effect and really highlight the waistline!
I have always liked sleeveless sweaters for the Summer. This one is a nice weight so it has a smooth, close fit.
As I result, I recommend not wearing this one with jeans. As you can see in the photo of me trying it on, the heavy denim fabric of my jeans takes away from the smooth fit of the top. But this top would be awesome over either pants or a skirt in a dressier fabric.
In addition, this top would be great to pack for a business trip or vacation, as it will travel well.
Style this with either black or white slim pants for an upscale-casual outfit. Alternatively, you could wear this with a black pencil skirt or wide-leg trousers for a dressier occasion.
I think I will wear this with slim black cropped pants throughout the Spring and Summer. This would be a great lunch outfit, paired with wedges. Adding dressier heels would make it a fabulous dinner date outfit too!
4. Floral Print Ruffle Tunic
There’s something about asymmetrical tops…they provide a slimming effect. Asymmetrical tops are usually a bit edgy, but the floral print, ruffles, and sheer details provide a softened, feminine effect here.
This top has a generous length and a flattering drape, so it is an excellent choice to pair with skinny jeans. I especially love the way the blue in the print coordinates with the denim!
5. Sleeveless Floral Print Top with Lace
I like this sweet little floral top with lace trim so much! This halter-style top looks great with jeans, and could also be paired with black pants for a dressier look.
Wear this top alone with jeans for a casual date night, or layer a jacket over it to wear to the office.
My favorite thing about this top is the lace trim down the front. This creates a vertical line down the center, which is very slimming to the eye.
6. Floral Choker Top in Navy
This cute Spring top was on sale and is no longer available online. It may still be available at your local store.
This is very similar to a top I wore to host a holiday gift-exchange at our home. That top was also from White House Black Market, and I have really enjoyed wearing it. So, I couldn’t resist the Spring version of it!
This floral choker-top is adorable with jeans. I think it would be even cuter with white jeans for the Summer!
