Joji Locatelli is one of my favorite top-down designers. My latest Joji project is the Staple Linen Top, which is a go-to wardrobe staple - especially in Queen City Coleman, a gorgeous year-round blend of silk and linen.  

The Staple Linen top looks great on a variety of body shapes and sizes, and is easily customizable, so you can add your own flourish.  I narrowed the shoulders a bit, and shortened the armhole - all of which are pretty simple to do.  Since it's worked top-down, you can easily change the overall length as well.  

The finishing is up to you.  Leave the edges plain, or add a quick edging.  Take the neckline up to a turtleneck, if that's your jam.  There are a million ways to make this garment your own, and I'm sure you'll want to knit several and try them all.
