Inspiration needed... Nice tops to wear with jeans?

Can anyone inspire me with some suggestions of nice casual summer tops to wear with jeans please?

I seem to have a drawer full of very boring plain shapeless t-shirts and long sleeved winter clothes. I need tops for things like going out for a coffee with friends, school end of term events and taking the kids for a pizza - so not too dressy but just a bit more stylish.

I'm a busty, apple shape with a big tummy. I don't particularly like tight fitting tops and don't do pastels. Legs are ok so tend to wear slim fitting jeans with tops that finish at hip-length. All suggestions gratefully received. smile

H&M have got lots of chiffon type sleeveless tops if you search on their site...

I've got quite a few Boden Ravello tops, they fit the bill 'not too try hard but made a bit of effort'.

Watching with interest. Im looking for sparkly glittery tops for going out.

I'm similarly shaped & im very partial to the Seasalt Stonechat tops They're boxy so very forgiving over the tummy . They don't cling to backfat either. I've gotten one a year, often on sale or on eBay.

I've got one on now with jeans & a blazer over it for a semi-formal event. I generally wear them with skinny jeans, but it often with shorts or a mini skirt.

Shirts are a staple too. GAP always have good ones, and generally on sale. My current fav though is this one from M&S. It's got hidden buttons so it doesn't gape at the bust.

Boden Ravello tops were what I thought when I read your OP.

I really like those Bardot style off the shoulder tops which are absolutely everywhere at the moment.

I live in the Bideford popover by FatFace. It's basically a casual yet smart white cheesecloth shirt thing.
