Please help me find high neck summer tops

My decolletage is ruined by sun damage. I wear 50+ block every single day and it still goes all red and nasty, with the surrounding skin staying completely white. It looks horrible and it's going to start going really wrinkly soon. I'm in my mid 40s, short, size 10. I am looking for high neck semi fitted tops, long-ish, in either cotton or linen. In the fast I have been fairly successful with Fat Face but not so much this year. I don't want a button all the way up shirt-type top by the way, I'd like pretty summery tops that just happen to cover all the way up to my neck. Sleeveless is fine. Thanks!!

Have you looked in Monsoon and East? I don't do sun at all, always cover up, everything, incl arms. I do wear a lot of linen shirts though which you don't want.

I've just had a quick look and there are some in the T Shirt section (which has a 100%cotto section) and some in the blouse section.

I have the same thing and like halter style tops like this.

Take a look on ASOS using "high neck" search term then you can filter by size, colour etc

They are everywhere. I know this because I need low/v neck summer tips (huge boobs) and every nice top i fund has a high neck.

I have this problem. I get quite bad acne flare ups on my chest and also have some scarring so prefer to keep it covered. Agree that Fat Face is usually good. You could search FF tops on ebay?
This year I'm wearing thin linen tees from Whistles / Boden / Sweaty Betty with tube skirts. Nice and cool and I like the look.

I saw some pretty high neck tops in Stories the other day. Some natural fabrics mixed in amongst them too.
