The white blouse is seasonless, goes with everything and looks fabulous on all types of figures. It has been a classic for years, and will continue to be so for many more. Endlessly chic with its crisp, white collar and oversized cuffs, or soft and feminine with a loose, blousy fit and lace appliqué collar, the options are endless. The white blouse suits any woman at any age and never goes out of style.
No wonder designers are paying special attention to this piece this season. With consumers carefully weighing each penny they spend, designers are tapping into buyers’ needs and bringing this classic back to life. Eccentric cuts and heavy details add a little drama to the once-boring button up.
D&G adds an Edwardian twist with a high neck collar, flamboyant black ribbon trim, and billowy sleeves that are ideal for an evening out.
YSL shows off the strength in a woman’s shoulders with a clean, streamlined, long sleeve blouse with subtle touches that make the cut fierce and modern.
Donna Karan adds a masculine touch to her feminine collection with an oversized collar, long sleeves, and delicate waistline.
Michael Kors keeps it simple with a cowl neck collar and breezy three quarter length sleeves.
Cutout details around the neckline add drama to this Andrew Gn white blouse option.
Voted the best investment piece of the season, a bright white blouse will show off any skin tone and can easily be worked into your wardrobe for Spring 2010. No matter what your style may be, designers have created a version that will fit right in with your look for Fall 2009.
