A key staple in ANY lady's wardrobe should be the blouse. The blouse has come a long way since your grandma or great aunt was wearing them!
A big hit for the past few seasons, the blouse just isn't going away and if you haven't got at least one in your closet, now is the time to invest!
A great combination of sleeves and lightweight fabric makes the blouse great for weather changes coupled with a combination of enough dressiness and casual to make it work for all occasions - how can you go wrong??
The key to giving the blouse edge is a) teaming it with the right jewelry to keep an edgy look and b) how to tuck it!
HOW TO WEAR THE BLOUSE
The art of tucking the blouse is almost as big a trend as the blouse itself! So here are a few rules of thumb to ensure your blouse looks more Kate Moss than Great Aunt Kate!
- Tuck the front two tails of your blouse into jeans or pants and blouse out slightly, leaving the back part hanging loosely. This is THE blouse look right now!
- For a smarter, work look tuck the blouse into pants and skirts to emphasise your waist. Leaving it hanging it out will make it look untidy and only serve to make you look bigger. The key is in drawing the eye to the waist
- If you do wear the blouse loose or want to team it with leggings or skinny jeans, be sure to add a belt to bring it in at the waist and skim your shape. A belt will also add more interest and style to the overall look
Team your blouse with EVERYTHING - they look great with skinny jeans (dark denim, patterned, colored you name it!); leather (a big trend this season!) the chiffon type fabric works well with leather or faux leather; teamed under a chunky knit, again the contrast of fabrics works well; over leggings or jeggings!
