I love white blouses and tops. So much so that my sister even makes fun of me because of the number of white tops I have in my closet. In my mind, few things are better than a white top that is so versatile it really can go with just about anything and I love the look with my skintone. Luckily for me, this season the white top is even more en vogue and is really a must have in your closet.
The white top is an essential staple in your closet because they really can be timeless pieces that work seamlessly in your wardrobe from season to season. They can be worn underneath cardigans or wraps or as standalone statement pieces in your closet. Consider a few of my favorite white blouses in different styles that will give you a variety of alternatives for your wardrobe and your individual style.
First, check out the Darvey top by Velvet a great long tunic length top in baby jersey cotton, this top in white features long buttons down the center of the top. A great top to wear over a Kelisha long tank by Velvet for added contrast and even works great over leggings. This top is distinctive and a perfect blend of casual and yet classy. As we mentioned it is available in white, but also brown and green.
Next up consider the Pintuck Empire top by designer Zooey by Alice Heller. This great top features contrasting textures of shirting cotton or cotton voile and jersey cotton. With an empire waist for added feminine touches, this top features buttons in front as an added detail element. The top features the cotton voile for accents around the base of the sleeves and around the neckline. The sleeves have a slight flare to them and the waist is slightly flared giving this top a fluid bohemian style look. It is a great casual piece that can also be dressed up when necessary.
Finally, consider the Bermuda V Neck Stripe Top by designer Ella Moss as a great top with a hint of color. This top features yet another style with a fitted waistband and a v neck with contrasting stripes in smokey purple, orange and yellow colors. The v neck features a knot at the center giving it a gathered look in front for added distinction. This top is a rayon blend so it is ultra soft and comfortable to wear. It is a great way to mix in a touch of color with the basic white top.
All of these tops are great white staple tops, but each of them has their own bit of flare or fringe to make them each distinctive and depending on your individual style these examples are great ways to incorporate that basic white top or blouse into your closet. In my opinion you really can’t have enough white tops in your closet and I would be the first to admit that there is nothing wrong with having a number of go to white tops in your closet.

I love to sport designer clothing and glamorous looks everyday. However, as a busy mom on the go I need to look fabulous in a hurry most mornings. For inspiration I have found many busy celebrity moms have turned to trendy jackets and fabulous hats to look fashionable even when they are on the go.
Victoria Beckham on the go and in style
Nicole Richie in Marc Jacobs boots and Eugiena Kim plaid hat
So here is my version. First, I always wear a trendy jacket with straight jeans and tall boots. As for the jacket, I love Zooey’s Bomber Jacket.
Zooey's Bomber Jacket
This jacket is so soft and comfortable it feels like a sweatshirt, but looks fitted and trendy and fashionable. I love the cropped look in back which gives it an added bit of flair. To keep with the military theme I wear a military style hat but with a different jacket you could wear a trucker or knit hat as well. Another great jacket example is Zooey’s version of the Pea coat, the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket. This jacket goes great with that military look.
With this look I can be ready in as little as 15 minutes and not be afraid to run into anyone I know as the grocery store or gas station. What about you, what is your favorite on the go look?

Zooey by Alice Heller has done it again! She has designed a fabulous top that we think will be a must have for all fashionistas this holiday season. We’re referring to the black satin trim cardigan top that is so versatile.
Zooey by Alice Heller
It can easily work as a cardigan over your dress to the holiday party, yet still looks amazing when worn with jeans. With the contrasting satin trim around the collar, the body of the top, and the tie, this top has that dressy, sophisticated look while also being super soft and made from a supima cotton modal blend making it so comfortable. What we love even more about this awesome fabric is that it is also machine washable. We love the 3/4 length sleeves that also add to the versatility as it doesn’t have to be worn only in the winter. Zooey’s creative use of contrasting fabrics never neglects the basics.

Zooey clothing features timeless turtlenecks that while they are generally timeless pieces for your fall and winter wardrobes, we also love the updated stylish twists designers like Zooey have incorporated into the modern, hip turtleneck. Even Audrey Hepburn made turtlenecks look fashionable!
Audrey Hepburn Vintage Style Turtleneck
Here’s what we love about the one of the different styles of turtlenecks that we feature at Vintage Fringe, today we’re highlighting the turtlenecks by Zooey. First we love Zooey’s loose version of the turtleneck. The turtleneck itself isn’t tight or restrictive, is actually a loose fit which allows it to just naturally fall around the neck providing a hip and stylish look.
Next, we love the length of all of these Zooey tops, they all fit well below the waist so you don’t have to worry about that uncomfortable feeling as your top crawls up throughout the day. Available at Vintage Fringe in a variety of colors including: black, brown, dark grey, grey, ivory, light grey, plum (shown) and white. All of these Zooey tops are made from an amazingly soft supima cotton; these tops wear well and are super comfortable.
