After working with the Spring/Summer Collection for the last few months for this blog, we’ve come to realize how truly unexpected MarketPlace pieces can be. Whatever you may call them — shirts, blouses, tunics, kurtas — they are some of MarketPlace’s hidden gems. With so many varieties, colors, and textures in flattering cuts, MarketPlace tops are surprisingly contemporary. But sometimes it can be intimidating to style such unique garments, so we’d like to show you how to bring MarketPlace into daily wear and inspire you to add them to your wardrobe.
We’ve featured some of the Spring/Summer season’s best tops that deserve a closer look. Look for our takes on the Fall/Winter collection soon!
This is such an elegant tunic that you can’t help but feel great in it. It’s the perfect piece for creating an eclectic outfit. It’s bold yet still feminine and is flattering on almost anyone. We paired it with white pants, a crystal bangle, satin pink wedges (not pictured), and a clutch to dress it up. Wear it with some flats or jeans and you can make this into an everyday tunic.
Soft flowy cotton knit, a beautifully stitched collar, a slimming color and it’s sleeveless! What more could you want on a hot summer day? It’s so comfortable that we could easily wear this around the neighborhood or maybe while doing errands. We styled this as casual everyday wear with contrasting sandals and a funky bag. You can embellish it with a belt at the waist and wear it as a dress. If that’s too much leg for you, a pair of leggings or slim jeans will do the trick!
We just love this top because it can be worn with many different things and transformed into various styles. Here, we styled it with a flirty dress, sandals and gold earrings, letting the bright coral color stand out. But why not make it more casual with your favorite pair of pants and a tank? Tie it tight for a more form-fitting look or leave it loose to give it more of a cardigan feel.
