The top often makes the outfit, which is exactly why we decided to ask our buying team about their favorite tops of the season and what trends they are most excited about. Keep reading to see what our buyers had to say about their TOP picks!
Wear versatility on your sleeve with a top featuring elastic off the shoulder design. This genius two-in-one can be worn both on and off the shoulder to take you to your maximum comfort. Show a little shoulder for date night or wear it on the shoulder for extra confidence and more bra friendly styling. Pair this printed beauty with distressed Bermuda shorts and your favorite summer sandals for a perfect weekend look.
Our buyers love sleeve interest at the moment. Take a cue from Cato Senior Assistant Buyer, Kara. Cold shoulders, slits, bell sleeves…she loves it all!
Kara says, “Sleeve interests are really on trend right now. Cold Shoulders like this one complement bold prints without taking away from the detail.”
Lace and crochet is always a favorite trend. We’ve updated this classic with mesh lace and crochet border hemlines for a feminine yet modern style. With opaque lining along the thick straps and crochet and lace details, this top is a bra-friendly option for those warm summer days. Take this delicate look to the chic level with distressed denim and a bold printed scarf.
High Low hemlines are flattering and elegant, adding an extra boost of confidence to your daily style. Cato Senior Assistant Buyer, Nicole, is a big fan of this ladylike style.
“Alternative hemlines are having a major moment. I am crushing on this high low top with feminine pleated details,” says Nicole.
Alternative hemlines with longer lengths take a graceful approach when featuring elements like pleats, draping and embroidery. Take a fun turn on the trend with sharkbite hemlines. Complement your white ankle pants with high low hemlines and block heel sandals for soft, flowy style.
Flowy, graceful style makes a statement with printed kimonos. We love this style for versatile, light layering. Details including tassels, embellishments and ruffles take our favorite third pieces to the next level. Erin, Cato Buyer, loves these bright and impactful looks.
“Layering items like kimonos are great transition pieces for those hot temps to chilly AC. Bright colors and bold prints make them even more perfect.”
Pair a color coordinating layering tank with a printed kimono, denim shorts and comfy sandals for a beach to brunch look.
