I’ve bought several of these blouses this Summer and snapped pics of the different ways I’ve been wearing them (every.single.day.)
A floaty blouse is my Summer go-to for so many reasons! Not too hot, hangs nicely on the body (doesn’t cling to anything!) and it translates well for any occasion. Dinner out, pool cover up, working in the yard, dressed up for a wedding, all of it!
But first — You will see SO many shops have shirts just like this so pick your poison, but I went with H&M linen blend ones, as well as a couple types from Uniqlo. This rayon option because it feels a little bit more formal and the sleeve length is great! Also these cotton ones are a great basic!
And here’s how I’ve been wearing them the last few weeks!
This is the rayon Uniqlo top with my favorite plisse culottes (plisse is a fabric with a fine pleating effect — helpful when you’re searching! ) Look how many color options just on ASOS!) Throw on heels or oxfords and wear it to work, a wedding, dinner out! BLOUSE // CULOTTES // SANDALS // SUNNIES // LIP (Bawse by Smashbox) $5 off here!
TO THE POOL
I prefer a blouse to just about anything over a swim suit. Covers burnt shoulders but still catches rays on the stomach (that stays white all summer somehow.) And you can move to the next activity without feeling underdressed. Blouse // Skirt old but similar here // Slides // This year’s version of Raleigh’s trunks // Sandals
