MarketPlace Style: Fall Transitions

Post by Tessa
It’s that time of year again!  Summer is ending and the weather is becoming cooler.   While most of us are not looking forward to the next eight months of colder weather (at least eight months here in Chicago), one thing I always look forward to is new clothes. It’s one of the only things that gets me through the season at least semi-sane.   Fall fashion always brings in new textures, layers and colors.  It’s fun to have an excuse to play with new looks.

When I saw the new fall-winter fashions from MarketPlace I was delighted.  In my opinion, it’s the best line we’ve seen yet!  Great fall colors, new shapes, and a more contemporary feel.

We had a fun time playing around with the new tops and imagining the styling possibilities.  We can’t wait to show you our take on more of the stunning items from the fall-winter collection in future posts.

Check out our first takes below of what fall has to offer…

Tulsi Top: This top has more structure to it than the typical MarketPlace top but still has the artisanal feel. What I love about this is that since it’s more structured the fit is fantastic. It’s definitely a slimming item. I also fell in love with the delicate and colorful stitching on the neckline; the colors are so vibrant, they just pop! We paired it with a pair of simple dark “jeggings” but any pant or non-patterned skirt will suit it. I also wore it with my mother’s (now mine!) bright blue Iranian turquoise earrings and ring. I thought a bright earring would complement the nude undertone in the shirt and pick up on the stitching. Plus I love any chance I get to wear them!
Nagina Tunic: Love the color, love the pattern, and love the fit! I would wear this everyday if I could; it’s so comfortable. What I like about this tunic is that you can belt and it still looks great – that’s not always the case when it comes to tunics. Dress it up, dress it down, this one works both ways. I paired it with jeans in the photo but I can envision it with a silky pair of dress pants for a more formal look. Keep the jewelry simple since the top takes care of the details.
Sangita Top: This is one of those versatile tops that can suit a number of occasions. Whether you’re doing your everyday errands and want to look good or a casual weekend outfit or even going out to a nice restaurant, this top will take you anywhere. I really like the color, it’s more subtle than the Nagina tunic above but still colorful enough to brighten your look. It has a flattering neckline and cinches at the waist to create a figure-flattering silhouette. This one is definitely a traffic-stopper! We made it casual for our purposes but I can easily see this with a fitted dress pant. Again, make sure you keep the rest of your outfit simple – these tops do most of the talking.
