Three Ways To Wear a Blouse

work wear classics styling tips womens fashion ideas back to work outfit ideas mom style ideasThe utilitarian blouse is a wardrobe staple of mine. I wear it the same way I wear the classic white blouse, with everything.  In the first image, I’m wearing the blouse causally with jeans, black puffer coat, black ankle boots and choker necklace.

In the second image, I’ve kept my outfit monochromatic and left the blouse unbuttoned. Wearing the same black ankle boots and black turtleneck from previous post. An important styling tip to remember is that when you leave any blouse unbuttoned it acts like a soft blazer. Creating more outfit options for you.

In the third image you can dress the utilitarian blouse up by adding a skirt or simple slip dress, with a statement necklace or earrings.

When you can wear an item from your closet three different ways, your outfit options are endless. I feel like I say that in every post…but isn’t that what we all want from our wardrobe?

M is for Mules

Mules are a classic style of shoe that will go with just about everything in your closet. I love wearing my black kitten heel mules with jeans and cropped style pants. With so many options out there, I would suggest sticking to more neutral colors which will fit perfectly into your wardrobe, and yes leopard is considered a neutral.

The Blazer

No matter your lifestyle. No matter if you work in an office, stay at home, or you wear a uniform or scrubs every day. Every woman needs at least one blazer in their wardrobe, that they can depend on.

Just like my wardrobe basic #1 jeans, the blazer gives you countless options. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t own a lot of clothing but I invest in the wardrobe basics and have some great accessories that allow me to create many different looks.

Wear your blazer with any trouser, dress or skirt, you have now created a suit.

Wear your blazer with any pair of jeans.

Blazer can be dressed up or down, depending on the shoes you are wearing.

Add a fur vest to give an entirely different look.

Wear over your shoulders to add instant glam. (I love wearing a blazer over your shoulders when wearing a dress).

You can add accessories to your blazer and no one will even remember it’s the same one. Accessories such as a fur collar, silk scarf, necklaces, and broaches.

Belt the outside of the blazer.

Roll the sleeves up to make it more causal.

7 Days of Style Tip: Fit is everything. If you purchase a blazer that doesn’t look like it was meant for you, go and visit a tailor.
