How to wear a blouse

how to wear a blouseHow do you wear a blouse? Any way you darn well fancy. I heard someone pipe up on Twitter recently that they didn’t now how to wear one and while this baffled me, I think of some items I just wouldn’t know how to wear and so I guess if you’ve never really tried a style of item before it kind of puts you off balance when coming up with an outfit.

My definition of a blouse is it being floppier than a shirt (which I regard as crisp). I tend to wear oversized blouses, which started because when you find something you like in a charity shop it's take it or leave it, but now I like the roominess of a size or two up. If you're in need of a bit of inspiration for how to wear your blouse then here is a montage of mine.

  1. I've never been able to master the blouse under a tank or jumper look, but I do like a good blouse, normally I team with jeans but I have been experimenting more. I tired a half tuck with a maxi skirt in the summer and loved it, more recently a half tuck with a mini - loved that too! waistcoat next :O)

  2. I think I may have tried most of them to be honest. I love your looks

  4. I wear them most days for work tucked into a pencil skirt and belted up for heels. Original, I know!

  5. I hate the button gaping so I wear mine under a jumper or dress with the collar poking out.

  6. You look lovely in all of these, I prefer blouses to t shirts, they are much more structured which I like :)
