If you think about it, blouses are actually the perfect piece for autumn: they’re warmer than a T-shirt but also thin enough to be layered underneath a knit when it gets colder outside. Plus, they’ll always make you look put together, no matter what you style them with. So we thought this would be a great opportunity to introduce you to our favourite new styles that have just landed on site, and show you how we’d wear them. If that’s not enough to convince you, quite a few of our blouses are up to 50% off right now…
1. Colour splash
If you’re not quite ready to swap summer pastels for autumn hues, you don’t have to! Get your favourite colours cold-weather ready by going for a mix of shades from the same side of the spectrum based around the colours of your chosen blouse – think layers of blues, pinks and purples as seen with the above pairing. Tie it all together with some whites here and there and it’ll make for an instantly cohesive look.
2. Very ’70s
If you wear a boho blouse, you might as well go all the way – so why not add a pair of flares and a fringed gilet while you’re at it? But the ’70s vibes don’t even have to stop there, we’re also thinking of throwing a pair of patent go-go style boots, a crossbody bag and round sunglasses into the mix. Trust us, this is a tried and tested combination.
3. Oversize it
We love the idea of wearing an unbuttoned oversized Topman shirt over a trending corset top to achieve an unexpected contrast. Then, stick to classics like our iconic straight-leg jeans and a sleek black bag and boots combination to give it a retro edge. Complete with some micro sunglasses and a fun chain necklace this will be your new go-to outfit that’s sure to turn heads everywhere.
4. Leopard print is a neutral
We can probably all agree that animal print counts as a neutral by now, so a leopard blouse is a definite wardrobe staple at this point. Paired with a mini skirt and some slouchy Western boots, it will make for a fun look that works from desk to drinks. Finish it off with a reversible coat and a croissant bag and you’ll have that fashion editor look nailed.
5. Exaggerated collars are back
Our extreme-collar blouses are so cool, they don’t need much else to make a statement. Keep the rest of your outfit super simple to make your stand out – think black mom jeans, Chelsea ankle boots and a sleek tote bag. Throw an oversized, mensy blazer on top and add cute accessories like hair clips and it’ll make for a perfect office look with a twist.
