Say goodbye to tanks and sleeveless tops — and hello to fall’s new crop of blouses. With bright prints and cool geometric patterns, they really add some oomph to your work wardrobe.
I’m loving these for my weekday routine this fall for many reasons.
1. Polished and unfussy. They look tailored but they’re not uncomfortable, and they pair perfectly with most pants you already have in the closet. Leave them untucked, or do my favorite trick — tuck in the front and leave the back flowing for a very modern look with a slim pant.
2. Bold choices. From silky florals reminiscent of your grandmother’s drapes, to wild 70′s-esque patterns, try on a blouse you might think is a bit too daring. It will look good, I promise. That’s the fun part. It’s just a blouse, so it’s fun to experiment a little.
3. Dressing is a breeze. You wake up, you put on your makeup, do your hair and throw on a blouse. It takes the agony out of choosing an outfit. Even if you have to wear a business suit to work, these blouses are perfect. It’ll jazz up that black suit, and you can ditch the jacket after that oh-so-serious meeting.
Here are several blouse picks for fall. Have fun shopping!
