The Look for Less: Lace Top

The Telyn top from Lilly Pulitzer is absolutely stunning and is at the top of my wish list, but unfortunately the $178 price tag is not in the budget right now.

I really would love a lace top, but am looking for a lower price point right now for this top trend.  More and more, I'm finding the same styles repeated at many different stores at drastically different prices.  In this unstable economic climate, it's always good to be frugal.  Today I have some choices for the lace top at different prices and colors from stores you can probably find in your home town.

The first lace top is from Loft.  The 3/4 sleeves on the coral colored lace top are pretty and this lace is soft and mirrors the Lilly top very closely.  I saw this in person and feel that the quality is very good, especially when you consider the price.

Another fantastic choice is the gilded lace top with 3/4 sleeves from Talbots.  Again, I love the 3/4 length sleeves.  This top has the additional detail of the shaped scalloped lace at the sleeve, hem, and neckline.  I scoped this top out in the store for you and love the texture and feel of this top.  It's very luxurious.

I can always count on Zara for fashion forward trends at amazing prices.  There's a reason Pippa Middleton loves clothing from Zara...she knows that you don't have to spend a fortune to look fabulous.  This beautiful long sleeve lace top has a unique open back at the bottom hem and would be spectacular with a tank top in a contrasting or neutral color.  I would pair this with a beige or nude colored cami.  

Which lace top is your favorite?  Have you found a great option at another store?  I'd love to add it to the list.  



  1. I have wanted that Lilly top too but also couldn't stomach the price right now! Thanks so much for finding these - I just ordered the Loft top!

  2. I bought the Talbots top and then returned it because it was too short for my liking. I love the one from Zara!

  3. Such great finds!!! They are all gorgeous and have such a better pricetag, thanks for sharing!

  4. Love your alternatives. I have and wore the Talbots black lace top for Christmas Eve! I love it!!
