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?

Jeans are not complicated. You find the right fit, style and jeans will act like a loyal friend. You can depend on them and will always make you feel good. Isn’t that what we all want from our wardrobe?

Love this look. Classic and chic.

The Power of the T-shirt

You may think a t-shirt has little importance in your wardrobe, but I’ve recently found the perfect v-neck black t-shirt on Aritzia’s website and it’s from The Group by Babaton. It’s tailored but still gives you a feminine look. The fabric is a blend of Peruvian pima cotton and modal. Super comfy which is key, and works with everything from jeans to suits. When building your wardrobe, you need to have those classic items that will never go out of style and are reliable. Whether you choose black or white, make sure you find the perfect fitting t-shirt that suits your body. This t-shirt will take me from day to night, season to season, and will never date itself.

Below I’ve paired the black t-shirt with an IRO tweed jacket and a Hermes silk scarf. When completing the outfit remember that the shoe will dictate where you are going. For example, with this  I paired with a sleek leather mule with a kitten heel and dark denim which is perfect for going out to dinner with girlfriends. This same look would also work with ankle boots, ballet flats and a fashionable sneaker.
