The Blouse vs The Shirt

For me, the blouse is the winner (I’m a huge fan).

The pros being it’s soft, drapes in all the right places (you know – right over those things called breasts), comfortable against the skin and gives you freedom to move. There’s none of that button popping gaping that can happen with a shirt. The other benefit is if you wash it on a delicate cycle and hang it straight away you don’t need to iron. Not many shirts can claim such a feat. Last but not least, it’s great for all style personalities.

The cons, well sometimes they can become static (highly recommend carrying a compact bottle of anti static spray).

Ok, so blouses can be tricky too, in particular for those with an hourglass body shape, as they may feel it hides their shape. Unless the blouse is semi-fitted, for hourglasses it’s best to tuck it in.

For everyone else here’s how to wear the blouse.

If you’re wearing the blouse with pants you can tuck it in or wear it out. However, if you’re wearing it out,  you should wear it with pants that are skinny to straight, otherwise the volume will drown you. The same goes for skirts, but generally if you wear a blouse with a skirt, it’s best to tuck it in.
