Chic Summer Office Essentials - Part 1 Blouses
Summer is a whole different animal when it comes to dressing professionally. You need to have removable layers in case it's chilly inside, but an ensemble underneath that works when worn alone. In the next few posts, I am going to share some great interchangeable pieces that will make your summer office wardrobe go much further. I am super excited! Let's get started...
It is ALWAYS great to have blouses in your work wardrobe (year round). Light sheer fabrics will be helpful in the summer heat. Blouses can be tucked into skirts, pants, chino shorts (check with office dress code), and slim or skinny trousers. They can also be worn un-tucked with any of your usual work bottoms. I have a few different options to flatter your unique body shape and enhance your style. When it comes to choosing the most flattering blouse for you, there is more than meets the eye ;)
Tie Blouses - These blouses look great on just about everyone. Because they open up the neckline, they draw attention up towards your beautiful decolleteand face. The sleeves however can make a huge difference depending on your body shape.
Button Down Blouses - These blouses also open up your neckline with the slight v-neck they create. Great for adding structure to the body which benefits many different body shapes, from ladies with curves to ladies without. This is a "classic" style blouse with a sheer twist ;)
Well, there you have it for fashion forward blouse options! I hope this info was helpful in knowing what is the best type of summer blouse for you. I am looking forward to sharing more Chic Summer Wardrobe Essentials over the next few weeks. Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. How do you feel about tucking in your blouse? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and questions!
