A blouse is an effortless way to make an outfit look smart. If you’re not in the mood for a dress, a blouse with trousers or jeans is an easy option for evenings out and family occasions — not to mention looking the part for your next Zoom meeting (ha!). There’s no need to spend loads on blouses either when you can get something that looks as good as designer, on the high street, for much less!
Good for transitioning into the cooler months, this pick from Wyse is a bit thicker. Double denim is in!
Freida Blouse – Chambray, Wyse London
I love the details on the top: from the high neckline to the button details and the billowing sleeves, all of it.
Joy Cotton Dobby Top, Whistles
£59 (was £99)
You’ve got to have something broderie in your wardrobe and a blouse is a brilliant, timeless choice.
Fran Broderie Blouse, Wyse London
Another gorgeous and intricate choice, I like how smart this blouse feels.
Embroidered Ruffle Blouse, & Other Stories
I chose this one for the cuff details and puff sleeves — great if you prefer to cover up your arms.
Embroidered Statement Collar Blouse, & Other Stories
I know this one is a bit more on the expensive side but it’s still in my shopping basket because of its incredible floral-print patten, which is so busy yet manages to stay neutral.
Reign Blouse, Isabel Marant
Nothing beats a crisp, new white blouse. The Victorian style is a classic.
Sometimes a deep neckline is exactly what’s called for and this one from Sezane does it so well. Understated, yet so chic.
Priscille Blouse, Sezane
I love this with paired with skinny jeans. It’s so simple but so elegant.
Leopoldine Blouse, Sezane
There’s something super-relaxed about this one and I’m a fan of the feminine pink tones.
Wear under dungarees or with skinny jeans in the evening. This blouse looks good tucked in or out.
Gold Flecked Midnight Blue Blouse, TLM Edit
With its cute ruffle details, I reckon this one will look flattering on any body shape.
This pink is so playful and soft, a great pick for smart-casual occasions.
The pretty pom-poms and detail on the sleeves elevate this classic blouse.
Denim Blue Pom Pom Blouse, TLM Edit
Leopard print, long-puff sleeves and a stylish collar: what’s not to love?
Wide Blouse, H&M
