A standout patterned blouse makes enough of a statement to carry an outfit so you can feel free to add minimal accessories or go bold and pile on the accessories, we suggest a bag and a pair of shoes in similar hues.

Crops/Wraps/and Open Back Patterned Summer Blouses
Fully lean into your summer look with airy, cropped, and open back wrap blouses no matter the pattern. It’s even better if the fabric is loose and breathable like our pick from Adriana Degreas, a stunner made of silk chiffon. Embrace the crop like this Ulla Johnson number and pair it with navel-grazing shorts or a skirt or go with something high-waisted.
Stripes & Polka Dots for Summer 2020

Step out of your comfort zone with a bolder take on the stripe like this asymmetrical pick from Silvia Tcherassi.
Dreamy, Beachy Summer Blouses
What would summer be without a trip to the beach. What you’re wearing in the sand should be just as chic as what you’re wearing in the water. Luckily, there are plenty of beach ready tops to add to your summer wardrobe and wear to the beach and beyond. Consider our picks from Bottega Veneta which are chic enough to go from the sand to the street or this flowing cotton-blend top that will pair perfectly with your beach bag or picnic basket.
Floral Summer Blouses
Yes, the Spring staple looks just as good in the summer. There’s more than one way to pull off the print, try lightweight silks and chiffons with watercolor prints like our picks from LaDoubleJ, Carolina Herrera or Loup Charmant. If silk is not your thing try out a cotton or linen blend top with a bit more structure like these from Ganni, Marni, or Chloe.
