Fabulous Find of the Week: Nordstrom White Lace Top


When it comes to wearing white during the colder months of the year, I’m all for it. So many people break out darker clothes for fall, so rocking white is such a stylish way to stand out.

For this week’s Fabulous Find, I spotted a sleeveless top in the sale section of Nordstrom that’s so great for the summer-to-fall transition. This lace trim blouse can be worn as is or layered under sweaters and coats, which makes it worth every penny.

Want to see what the top looks like? Just scroll down to check it out, as well as three cute ways to style it for early fall:

Outfit #1

For a casually chic look, start by pairing this Fab Find with a fitted floral print skirt.

Stash the essentials in a unique horse-adorned tote, then accessorize with a pretty gemstone ring to complete the ensemble.

A sleek gold chevron necklace continues the bold vibe, while a dark teal crossbody bag adds a pop of color. Finish with one of my favorite fall lipsticks: Revlon’s “Black Cherry.”

Would You Wear… a Sleeveless Coat?

Whether you call it a sleeveless coat or a long vest, one thing’s for certain: this outerwear style is on fire. This trendy topper is a happy medium for those fall days before the real cold sets in; you get the warmth and extra cover from the elements without overheating from being bundled up in a coat.

This layering piece is a unique take on outerwear. Aesthetically, it can look like a normal coat when worn with matching long-sleeves, or it can be a dramatic accessory with a chunky sweater or turtleneck. At the moment, most versions are on the pricy side, but we think it’s just a matter of time before they start popping up at all of your favorite fast-fashion stores.

Fast-fashion giant H&M recently announced plans to launch an eco-friendly collection of denim. The line will be part of the retailer’s Conscious Collection label, which carries clothing made from organic and recycled materials.

According to WWD, all of the denim washes in the collection were “assessed in terms of their environmental impact, including water and energy use.” Helena Helmersson, head of sustainability at H&M, also spoke about the eco-friendly aspect of the line:

“We’ve worked hard to reduce the environmental impact from the washing processes alongside using materials that are more sustainable. The collection is full of great pieces, and proves how sustainability can equal great style.”

The 40-piece collection includes men’s, women’s, and children’s styles, priced between $20 and $50. This line consists of more than just jeans: quilted coats, sweatshirts, and beanies are part of the women’s offerings. The Conscious Denim collection launches online and in about 1,000 stores worldwide on October 2.

To tide you over until then, check out the campaign video below:
