Few things make me happier than spring tops. I don’t know what it is about the clothing genre, but it manages to top spring jumpsuits, spring rompers—even spring dresses. Spring tops feel fun, and vibrant, and fresh, and new. It’s almost like the entire season is wrapped up in this one sartorial segment—a genre of clothing so vast and varied it manages to capture every spring color, every spring texture, every spring silhouette and more.

Take a moment to peruse your favorite retailers’ spring collections, and you’re sure to dig up all kinds of spring tops. Some are rendered in dreamy, lightweight fabrics—complete with frills and puff-sleeves. Others offer hot pinks rendered in heavier, but tactilely delightful silk-satins. Then there are the low-key, lettuce-hemmed jersey tanks. The more structured—but somehow still breezy—striped, short-sleeve button-downs. The playful smocked tops. The transparent woven ones. The subtly sexy lace-up ones. Every spring top feels just as magical as the last—and few, if any, feel redundant.

I know the idea of seasonal wardrobe shopping is a contentious one. I personally prefer to stock up on versatile pieces that carry me through the entire calendar year, but even I’m charmed by the selection of spring tops currently pervading the market. I’ve never felt so tempted to throw caution and rationality to the wind, and to stock up on every single spring top that tickles my fancy. Of course, this practice would bleed my bank account dry in no time—the selection of spring tops worth shopping is so immense my budget wouldn’t be able to handle it.
