The easiest way to dress up a boring look? The answer is quite simple, actually. You wouldn’t think that a blouse could do all that, would you? Well, I’m here to prove you that with 3 different blouses designs you’ll never hesitate on what to wear any more! They’re easy to style, and you’ll be grabbing for these designs on a daily basis. They’ll brighten up any of your daily looks in an instant, and you won’t need to add anything else. They’re perfect for any occasion, whether you need to dress up formally for work or want a more casual vibe, you’ll find yourself falling in love with these tops every time you wear them.
But first thing first, what is a blouse? Sometimes we can find it difficult to distinguish between a top and a blouse, so if you’re wondering ‘what is a blouse’, really, you’re not the only one. A blouse is, technically, a top, but often has its own category because a top could also be a crop top, and a blouse, well, not so much.
One shop I love to go to for blouses is Veronika Maine. They've got this casual, yet sophisticated look I can't find anywhere else. And the fit is great, too!
Women’s blouses: the must-haves
Have you ever stood in front of your closet and wondered, oh, what am I wearing today? But then, ugh, I’ve worn literally everything a bazillion times and I’m so sick of everything I own?
But then, every single time, I grab the one thing I know will look good even though I’ve worn it at least twice in the past week...
#1: romantic, white blouse.
There’s not much you can say about this design because really, it speaks for itself. Even if your style isn’t the feminine vibe this blouse design is giving, a contrast between a more masculine look and this white blouse is a winner.
Or, I turn to another design I know will save me.
#2: striped, button-down.
A button-down is always a good idea. No matter where you’re going or what you’re doing, a button-down is a lifesaver and must always brought with you on holidays and trips away! Personally I’m a fan of vertically striped patterns because of my petite shape. The lines give some kind of illusion I might look taller than I actually am (we’re all striving for this, admit it).
But if I’m looking for something a bit more festive, let’s say for a night out, then I always, always go for…
#3: an awesome print - polka dot, floral, leopard - something that says, the party is on!
One of these blouses + a cool pair of cropped skinny jeans? Sure, it’s the obvious jeans-and-a-top combo, but it’s a winning one! If you’re into glitter or metallic, that’s a great pick, too.
With these three blouse designs in your closet you’re guaranteed a fabulous look every time, no matter where you’re going, in a matter of seconds.
