Stylish White Simplicity

I think that every self-respecting and style-conscious woman must have a white blouse in her wardrobe. It is one of those indispensable items of clothing that can salvage even the most ordinary looking suit, skirt and trousers. Combined with right accessories a blouse can be a centrepiece of your outfit.

I am not talking about shirts here: that piece of clothing has drifted in from men’s wardrobe when women took more male roles in the workplace, but a blouse is a different type of garment: it has a distinctive feminine touch. The beauty of online shopping lies in the fact that you can find absolutely anything your heart desires and your wallet can afford. The difficult part is finding the right product. My most recent search was for a white blouse. Ok, perhaps, I was lying a bit here because I never search for plain and ordinary items of clothing. First, I always give preference to versatile clothes, with a twist of personality. I’m looking for a piece of apparel with a wow factor and out of these two ingredients – a blouse and a wow factor - I undertake to provide the latter should I find the right product!

What can be easier that to get a white blouse, one might ask? It is certainly true, but only until you actually start looking for one. Right from the start I disregard all identically looking white shirts: you can get such boring stuff from your nearest department store. My aim is to find what can be called a ladylike blouse: classy, sassy and chic.

The last decade has seen an increased interest in vintage style clothing and a lot of blouse styles reflect this trend too. Retro influence in modern blouse styles is evident in the use of such details as Peter Pan collars, tie collars, gently puffed shoulders, ruffled high necklines, cute buttons, frills or pleated necklines. All of such details are capable of adding a charming and feminine touch to a garment. There is hardly a fashion label, whether high street or couture, that has not exploited vintage inspired detail in its designs, and those details are prominently displayed in the blouse.

This simple piece of clothing is often overlooked and its style power is often underestimated. Originally derived from the attire of the male peasant, the blouse has become an essential part of a woman’s wardrobe, carrying the features of unmistakable femininity and glamour. Frills or no frills, a white blouse is an absolute must.
