Just like summer’s best dresses (hello!), a statement top offers the same one-and-done ease that I’m always after this time of year. The tops I’m talking about are the ones that, thanks to interesting details like ruffles and bow-tie shoulders, require little to no thought and need only a pair of denim to complete the look. This Rosie Assoulin top is a perfect example. Thanks to its unique cut and big-and-bold ruffles, this one-shoulder top does all the work for me. All I have to do is throw on a pair of denim (I’ve also worn it with these shorts) and out the door I go. That’s the beauty of statement tops: they simplify the getting-dressed process. And that’s what makes them numero uno on my list of must-haves for summer.

The good news? There’s lots and lots of these hero tops out there – and, just like my Rosie Assoulin one, they’re all on sale! Here, 13 on-sale favorites to shop right now.
