End of the month = my top ten styles. Here are my favourite tops and shirts from the Spring RTW collections. Enjoy!
I have already established that I am a massive McQueen fan, so its no surprise that the brand features in my top 10. The combination of pattern and colour in this top is fabulous and stands out just the right amount. I also love that it is clearly speaking to the current crop top trend, but is doing it in an oh-so-classy way.
This top is all about the shoulders and the awesome cape on the back. The smooth lines of the shoulders and neckline flow seamlessly into a wonderfully fluid cape giving some great back interest to a relatively simple style.
All of the colours! And I love it! The plain, white collar breaks up the kaleidoscope stripes around the face and the pleating around the armholes adds texture, extending the stripes over the shoulders and balancing the overall shape of the garment.
I was not a fan of the Dior Fall 13 shows but Raf Simons has redeemed himself (in my eyes anyway) with this collection. Full of pretty pastels and dazzling metallics, the collection reminds me of the Dior of old, which is the Dior I love. The colour and fabric in this top perfectly compliment the beautiful, twisted construction and the green fuzzy collar is pure fun!

I love the relaxed, comfortable fit of this top and the vibrant floral print. It is the perfect spring/summer top in which to enjoy the season – show me the way to the beach.
This top is a really sophisticated way to do the Sheer trend that seems to have stuck around from the last couple of seasons. The boxy cut and longer sleeves are nicely balanced by the shorter length, and the sheer panels show the perfect amount of skin in all the right places.
I must confess that I have a bit of a soft spot for lace and embroidery. Especially when it is done in a slightly left-of-centre way. Seemingly sheer with cut-outs in just the right places, the tribal motifs in this top give the lace-like fabric a grown-up, sophisticated feel.
This top doesn’t really need to be explained. It is so fierce! Shiny red lips, a perfectly pouffed shoulder; all you need is a pair of le Smoking tuxedo pants, some fabulous heels and the world will be your oyster.
This top is so pretty. The fabric, the cut, the floaty way it ruffles around the body is so feminine and well, pretty.

Spikes on a collar have never looked so chic! The boxy cut, smooth shoulder lines, white fabric and buttoned-up primness of the collar balance the sharp, silver spikes; giving the top an edgy feel without seeming threatening.
