The Updated White Blouse
It goes without saying that there has always been an element of simplicity and sophistication to a crisp white button-up blouse. Most people associate a white blouse with something you only wear to the office but with many fresh, modern, interestingly detailed designs out there this year the white blouse is one to wear far beyond the 9-5.
A core piece in my business edit is a silk blouse detailed with a tie at the neck worn with structured navy trousers or a tweed skirt and flats. For more casual looks, I like to create an understated yet refined look by wearing a white blouse with a pair of cut off Rag & Bone denim shorts.
Most recently I've been wearing a lot of lace and turtleneck necklines – they're trendy, chic, sophisticated and flattering (winning combo!). The lace on this Stone Cold Fox blouse (Baanou, $380) makes an effortless yet bold statement all on it's own. Lately I've been seeing alot of sheer blouses with the lace bra underneath so I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and give it a try – to my surprise I really loved the look.
Really, there's not much I wouldn't wear with this blouse – a deep denim jean and white pump for a girls dinner, a leather skirt and strappy heel for a social event, and I'd definitely pack it for any vacation because it's perfect for any and all of your 'grammable moments while you're out exploring and trying new restaurants.
The long bell sleeves with lace scallop detail (above) give this blouse a modern and elegant feel.
From lace or polished to modern, cool and casual, update your wardrobe with my must-have white blouses at every budget.
I hope you find a blouse that speaks to you and if you do I'd love to see how you style it!
