I don’t know what it’s been like in the rest of the country, but in my neck of the woods, this summer has been one of the most miserably humid that I can recall. (Thanks again, 2020.) Anytime I’m forced to go to a place where shorts and a tank top are inappropriate, I’m looking for linen or silk to keep me as cool as possible.
Boden has a whole bunch of gorgeous silk tops in a variety of colors right now, but this collarless blouse in “Tuscan Sun” really caught my eye. I like the length — you could wear it tucked into a skirt or trousers or untucked over leggings or skinny jeans. It also comes in five other solid colors and a really pretty floral print.
The shirt is $170 and available in regular sizes 2–22 and petite sizes 2–10. Silk Collarless Blouse
