Best Draped Tops For Summer 2012

Stay Cool — Over 30 of the Best Breezy Tops


Warm weather has hit hard this Summer, and when the temperature rises beyond belief, it can be nearly impossible to get dressed. One of the best ways to create a pulled-together look on a crazy hot day is to stick to breezy, floaty tops in lightweight fabrics and bold colors. The biggest advantage to a draped blouse is that it can make anything from cutoff shorts to white jeans to printed skirts look cool and bohemian, while still being slightly dressed up. You can also easily pop on a crisp blazer or thin scarf to beat any air-conditioner-related chill while indoors. Keep in mind that proportions are key: a draped top should almost always be paired with form-fitting bottoms, like skinny jeans or leggings, tailored shorts, or a pencil skirt. "Michelin Man" is not the look we're going for here. If you're ready to shop over 30 of the best breezy tops, then just click below now.
