Remember the lace-up tops from the '70's? Well, they're back in a big way, and I can see why. Lace-up details are everywhere and though this trend may make you think of a vintage-hippie vibe, the modern versions are anything but. Many of Carabella's favorite designers are embracing this versatile trend by incorporating throwback flair into everything from flowy tops, cool knits, and t-shirts, and I'm totally on board. Who doesn't love a bit of newness? Lace-up details are so now, and if you're looking to give this trend a try, let's start building your new season wardrobe with this fresh edit of stylish, trend-led tops.
For days when you feel like you have nothing to wear, reach for this wear-anywhere hooded top. Effortless everyday style comes courtesy of WHITE+WARREN in this casual pullover. This would be in constant rotation in my wardrobe as the soft cotton fabric makes it ideal for running errands, heading to the gym, lounging, and beyond. Perfect for the beach too. It does have a low v-neck, so a layering tank is needed.
Inject a splash of color into your wardrobe and discover the bright side of pretty with this ladylike tunic top from lynn RITCHIE Silver. It's the small details that add up to make this top eye-catching; the solid color, the minimal lace-up detail, the 3/4 sleeve, and the easy styling. If you're hesitant about trying this trend, then this simplistic top is for you. It would be a faultless addition to any wardrobe.
Polish up your daytime look with Velvet Heart's soft and drapey Lorainne top. Defined by a relaxed fit, collared v-neck, and lace-up placket, this top is unlike most lace-up tops in it doesn't have a plunging neckline. Classic and breezy, this will transition nicely between your cold weather wardrobe through the warmer months ahead.
This super-cool WHITE+WARREN sweater does the lace-up trend perfectly. The sleeveless silhouette in timeless black and white combines a perforated cotton knit with a band of ribbed knit across the bodice. Triple rows of lacing down both sides provides for an especially interesting design. These standout details make this edgy and modern sweater one that will grab everyone's attention.
This might be the cutest t-shirt I've seen so far this season. PHILANTROPHY's soft-to-the-touch cotton jersey tee could be your new favorite weekend top. I especially like how the self-fabric lacing extends over the shoulder for a contemporary take on a wardrobe staple that is anything but basic. Don't shy away from purchasing a t-shirt in the winter; layer it over a long-sleeve version and wear this adorable tee year-round.
It's hard not to find a way to work this SPORTSWORKS STUDIO cardigan into your wardrobe. It works with everything. By all accounts, this is an investment piece, but transeasonal. You will want to wear this sweater season-after-season with its classic design and beautiful lace-up details on the sides, and down the back. Personally, I like the versatility of this sweater in such that subtle changes in styling make it work from day to night. Color will pop under this luxe optic-white cardi, while replacing a dressy tank and scarf with tried-and-true double denim makes the outfit more casual and intriguing. (Basic rule of thumb...keep the denim washes completely different to pull off the look). This sweater has it all from refined sensibility to street-style edge; it's all in the styling.
So there you have it...lace-up details are all the rage right now bringing a wave of nostalgia in a modern age. Luckily, Carabella has stocked up on many variations of this trend to fit any style and budget. If you don't have a lace-up garment in your wardrobe yet, this would be the time to do so. Trends come and go, and honestly, we don't have to opt into all of them, but this one definitely deserves a spot in your new season wardrobe.
