Best Bet: AA’s Flower Mesh Jumper


American Apparel has had its share of sartorial misses, but sometimes the brand's forays beyond basics can be inspired. Such is the case with this new mesh floral-appliqué blouse, a piece that looks like it could have been pulled from the spring 2010 Parisian runway. (We detect a hint of Chanel in its ivory rosettes.) The looser silhouette and slight sheerness are perfectly on trend, making this a standout addition to your wardrobe of summer whites.

3-D Flower Mesh Jumper in white, $78 at American Apparel or online.
