For Less Friday

Your Favorite Versatile Top Worn 4 Ways & Under $90…Oh YES!

Affordable Versatile Top

Every now and again, there’s a fabulous piece you add to your wardrobe that really stands the test of time. You probably didn’t even realize you’d wear it as often as you do when you first bought it but…alas, it becomes a wardrobe staple. That is EXACTLY how Team Busbee feels about today’s For Less Friday top. It’s SO versatile you can wear it with everything from jeans to workwear AND…it’s affordable!  If you already have this top, we’ll show you how to style it 4 ways and if you don’t…what are you waiting for?? 😉

If you missed any of our For Less Friday posts including this post featuring 6 tops you can wear now AND into fall, you’ll find the entire series here.

Affordable Versatile Lace Top

Wayf Lace Top

 If this top looks familiar it’s because we feature it fairly often. It’s just too good…like scream from the rooftops kind of good. We’re talking about the Wayf Emma Lace top. Erin has been rocking this top for over 5 years and we dipped into the photo archives to show you 4 of her favorite ways to style it. Collectively, just about everyone on the team owns this top and some of us in multiple colors (we see you, Joy!) It’s also a Busbee best-seller which means you all love it as much as we do.

It’s so beautiful, elegant, classic, and sophisticated. It comes with a built-in, removable camisole, has subtle puff sleeves and pretty button details at the cuff, and a tie at the back of the neck. It also has a mock neck that’s loose and low, so it won’t highlight any loose skin around the neck. Bottom line…it’s just a really pretty piece to have in your closet.

Wayf Lace Top & Trousers

In this first look, Erin styled the Wayf top with some Favorite Daughter trousers and Sam Edelman pumps for an office-appropriate or out-to-dinner look. You could also easily layer a blazer or jacket over the top as a 3rd layer into the fall.

Wayf Lace Top & Black Pants

Here you’ll see Erin styled the same top with flattering black pants and platform booties. She also swapped out the built-in cami for a black one to switch things up a bit. This would be a great date night look or party look. But, you could also wear this to the office depending on your office environment.

Wayf Lace Top & Joggers

Sticking with a black and white theme, in the next look, Erin styled our star-of-the-show Wayf top with some cool silky cargo joggers and black booties. She’s wearing a cropped white cami underneath to dial up the sexy just a bit, but you could always wear the built-in cami if that feels more comfortable for you. We love how Erin tucked her joggers into her boots for a cool, modern, and edgy juxtaposition to the feminine lace top.

Affordable Versatile Top with jeans

 This last look is a throw-back of Erin styling the same Wayf top with a utility jacket, jeans, and wedges. This is a more casual way to wear the top and really highlights its versatility AND how the style of this top continues to stand the test of time. Just pair it with any stylish jeans and a 3rd layer that you love like a leather jacket, moto jacket, or even a blazer. To make it more casual, swap the heels for sneakers, loafers, or flats.

More Ways To Style This Versatile Top

  • Wear it with a pencil skirt.
  • With leather pants or a leather skirt for a party (or dare we say holiday) look!
  • Try a denim mini, midi, or maxi skirt.
  • With white pants or trousers for a monochromatic outfit.
  • Mix it up with distressed or faded boyfriend jeans for a more casual and edgy look.

  1. You girls are so cute! Just the way I pictured you. I would love to see a group photo of you all wearing your Wayf lace blouse in your own creative way.😉
    I own the blouse in cream and black both long sleeve and short sleeve and I have never worn any of them. So, I very much appreciate all of the wonderful ideas.
    I am going to Italy in a few weeks and between now and then I am going to try the blouses with a few of your ideas. If I wear it on vacation I will send you a photo.
    Keep up the good work. You are all very much appreciated! ❤️ Sending much gratitude and love from Michigan. 😘

    1. Awe, thanks SO much for your sweet comment, Bonnie! We’re all lucky to have YOU here in this amazing community of women. Can’t wait for you to try out these ideas with your own tops and I hope it works out just right for your upcoming trip. Have the BEST time in Italy! ~Team Busbee

  2. I have this blouse in the ivory and the pink. I wore the pink blouse with the same color pink wide leg pants! I thought it looked amazing as well as everyone else. I will most likely wear the ivory blouse with jeans.

    1. LOVE to hear that, Vicki! It’s such a great blouse, it’s hard to resist all of the lovely colors it comes in!! Thanks for sharing. ~Team Busbee

  3. One of the things I most appreciate about you, Erin, is your excellent taste and the fact that you mix investment pieces with just the fun additions that keep things exciting. For some reason, I collect lace tops like this one (wish I had it!) and they go with so many different looks — truly elegant and timeless. Thank you for these ideas and for encouraging us to shop our closet from time to time. xo

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet comment, Liz! So glad that you enjoyed this post and find inspiration from what we share! LOVE lace tops and find that they really elevate so many different looks. Enjoy your weekend! ~Erin xo
