How to Style a Blouse

Arnel Hasanovic |

The blouse is one piece that we’ve seen reemerge every season in new shapes, prints, fabrics, and color schemes. From dreamy neutrals and lightweight fabrics to keep us cool in the height of summer or deeper tones and fuller coverage pieces that blend seamlessly into your existing autumn and winter pieces, the blouse is both stylish and versatile. 

Whether you’re preparing your new season wardrobe to welcome long summer days, or shopping for winter staples to keep you looking on-trend as temperatures plummet, we’ve curated a list of some of our favorite blouses and how to style them for any season.

Coordinating bottoms

For an outfit that gives maximum impact with minimum effort, a coordinating set ticks every box. With a blouse and skirt, shorts or pants in the same fabric, style, and color palette, a coordinating set can be styled to suit almost any occasion. Choose an all-over patterned blouse paired with the coordinating bottoms to elevate your look, or opt for a monochromatic finish with two pieces in the same shade. Build the ideal date night look with the addition of mules and gold jewelry or slip on your favorite sandals and an oversized woven bag for a lowkey yet polished daytime outfit.

Winter layers

Although we love the breezy, oversized blouses that are perfect for throwing on over bikinis or adding a little extra layer on those early-season summer evenings, winter blouses are always welcome in our wardrobe. Stay warm on cooler days by layering a long-sleeved blouse with a basic cami underneath and a jacket over the top. An oversized leather biker lends the ultimate cool girl look, whilst a tailored trench is ideal for when you want something that can seamlessly transition from daytime to evening. Lean into the moody ambiance that comes with the winter weather and opt for rich shades of navy blue and earthy browns.

Summer staples

A crisp, white blouse is a must-have piece that will see you through summer afternoons as you laze on the beach, feeling the warmth of the sun and salt on your skin and into balmy evenings at the coast with a cocktail in hand. Invest in a lightweight cotton or pure linen piece that you’re guaranteed to love and wear year after year. Layer it over your bikini or button it low and pair it with a printed, ruffled mini skirt, sandals, and a leather bag for after dark.

A blouse is a perfect pick to dress up your favorite denim bottoms, whether it be a denim skirt, distressed shorts, or old faithful jeans. Create contrast by pairing a slinky satin blouse with light blue denim jeans for a casual evening ensemble or a long-sleeved blouse with a denim skirt or shorts and western-inspired leather boots for a transitional look. Tuck the blouse in to create a flattering silhouette or opt for a relaxed look by leaving it free-flowing.
