Each summer, a new variation of a crisp white blouse makes its debut. This season, meet the latest must-have blouses defined by statement collars, Victoriana details and retro ruffles. The trend is innately vintage so we’ve done some work on the styling front to help give it a modern revival. Think whimsical feels paired with distressed denim and puff sleeves with menswear style trousers to master a whole new aesthetic perfect for 2020.
1. So rock and roll
Taking inspiration from our favourite Boho girl Sienna Miller, we’ve paired an embroidered white shirt with some ripped washed denim shorts and western black boots. To give it even more of that Glastonbury feel we’ve been craving all summer long, we added a diamante shoulder bag and a straw bucket hat – an unlikely pairing but it works.
2. We want brunch
A white poplin blouse really can be styled for almost any occasion, one of them being brunch. Add some mid-wash jeans and platform mules for a surefire way to feel dressed up yet still stay comfortable. Then, finish with a mini bag and some tortoiseshell glasses to exude daytime chic with ease.
3. Something sophisticated
For something that feels sophisticated, pair a puff-sleeve option with some menswear style trousers for the ultimate back-to-the-office look. Or, alternatively, if you want to take this pairing on a night out, add some gold strappy heels and the earrings to match to make it feel more dancefloor appropriate.
4. Super modern
If you want the styling to feel super modern, some leather culottes in an ecru shade scream 2020. We think they look best with a heeled shoe like these lace-up boots and some simple accessories. With this all based around our sheering corset shirt, you’re sure to look bang on-trend.
A simple daytime option perfect for any summer plan consists of our oversized babydoll shirt and a flippy mini skirt. Stay classic with your accessories and opt for black sandals and some round sunglasses. Finish with a nylon bag and you’re all good to go.
