Living the #FabFound Life: Woven Tops at Marshalls

By  May 13, 2013

Six of our very fashionable style bloggers are in the process of stocking their closets with a few of spring’s hottest fashions and falling head-over-heels obsessed with Marshalls! These gals know that top quality fashion doesn’t need to come with the steep price of department stores, which is why Marshalls is right up their alley. Stocked with a variety of top specialty store names retailing at a fraction of the price, how can it not be their go-to place for savvy shopping? While focusing on six different trends, Hallie of Corals and Cognacs, Viviana of Fashion Truffles, Natalie of the Fashionably Broke, Sara of High Fashion 4 Less, Lauren of Lauren Messiah, and Jessica of Bows & Sequins will show us their high value fab finds—and how they style them.

This week was all about styling different types of woven button-fronts, from silk blouses to chambray shirts, in order to create one-of-a-kind looks. The sought-after piece is a closet staple that’s incredibly versatile and comes in an array of styles and silhouettes. Take Natalie’s oversize, flowing navy-and-black find compared with the more formfitting black-and-white, open-shoulder one Sara chose; both tops are styled with buttons down the front, long sleeves, and an angular collar but still manage to look completely different from one another. Lauren Messiah’s blouse showcases another style the button-front top can be found in. Hers is a sleeveless floral-print woven blouse with a cute collar and fitted cut. Tucking it into folded jeans, she creates the ultimate day-to-day look for warm afternoons.

The other half of our Glam bloggers made way for chambray when choosing their must-have woven blouse. Viviana went classic in a faded-wash denim shirt with dark skinny jeans and black pumps—a tried-and-true go-to ensemble. Jessica styles her chambray by leaving a polka-dot patterned top unbuttoned to expose a silk blouse underneath. Very spring, very inspiring. Another inventive denim shirt initiative? Pair the timeless button-down with sequins on the bottom. The two materials wouldn’t seem to go together—one casual and classic, the other glam and glitzy—but Hallie makes it work with a sparkling mini and metallic sandals.
