One of the most important pieces a woman can have in her wardrobe is a white blouse. It truly is a blank canvas and can be styled with everything from business to beachwear. You can find them at every price point at every store in every style. Some of my favorites below…
For a tried and true fit with a slight nod to a men’s oxford, you can’t beat this Relaxed Classic Shirt from Old Navy. On sale for only $16 this is a piece you can buy in bulk as if your home is anything like mine, white shirts also double for napkins, paint cloths, play-do placements…
I am a big fan of Topshop for fast fashion as I never like to pay top dollar for trend pieces. This Oversized Babybdoll Blouse is super cool and edgy. The tie detail on the cuffs and the exaggerated shirttail hem make this anything but your basic white blouse.
Another winner from Topshop, this Victorian Puff Sleeve Blouse gives me all the Chloe feels for a fraction of the price. The frill bib and sleeve detail make me want to put on wellies and run in a wheat field, but I’ll settle for pairing it with cropped denim and booties and running to grab a coffee.
There is a lot happening on this Free people Sunshine Blouse that makes me happy. I love an off the shoulder anything as it is one of the most subtle ways to be sexy. Puff sleeves are so on trend right now and super flattering. I also have leaned into the cropped cut- but only with a high waisted bottom combo as it keeps the silhouette classy- and allows you to hide all your extra mom skin:)
This Madewell Bubble Sleeve Cardigan tops wins twice, once worn buttoned up as a blouse and again worn open as a cardigan. The slouchy arm length just adds to the cool factor.
The texture on this Kathryn Blouse from Anthropologie adds a touch of whimsy to already fabulously cut shirt. If you haven’t tried the French tuck yet (or the accidental tuck as I like to call it) this shirt is the perfect place to start. Also available in plus size.
Jewelry or neckties are a great way to reinvent a white blouse. This Tie-neck Blouse from H&M is obviously great with the dainty black ribbon it comes with, but you can easily dig into that trusty old gift wrap bin and swap it out with any pattern or color your heart desires.
So go get one ladies, and make it your own!
