Blouses are back ladies! Okay, so they never really went anywhere having been a wardrobe staple for women (and even men at some points in history) for decades upon decades. While having a blouse or two in your closet isn’t anything new, there is an emerging style trend that takes the piece from classic to fashionably forward.
As indicated by recent outfit choices from megastar Beyoncé Knowles, it’s now on trend to go big, bold, and brassy with printed blouses.
The Love on Top singer was first spotted taking part in the new trend while on a family vaycay in St. Barths.
She paired a red, white, and orange printed silk blouse from Gucci with cutoff denim shorts, blue and gold Yves Saint Laurent ‘Arty’ rings, a white Eugenia Kim ‘Honey’ sunhat, and her favorite pair of Linda Farrow for The Row sunglasses.
A few days later Bey was back in NYC still rocking her Linda Farrow for The Row glasses, as she took a stroll with baby Blue Ivy.
The mother-daughter duo sported color coordinated ‘fits, with little Blue wearing a yellow shirt that matched mommy’s yellow and black Versace venetian print silk shirt. Beyoncé even made sure Blue had a print of her own, covering the baby with a Lauren Moshi ‘Victoria’ tribal scarf.
‘They’ say the third time’s the charm, but when considering a star of Beyoncé’s style caliber, twice is enough to officially declare it a trend. Get Beyoncé’s Gucci blouse from Saks for $795, and her Versace shirt from Net-a-porter for $1,275.
If that’s outside your budget (because I know it’s outside mine, lol) see below for a few low end alternatives.
