Welcome to the second installment of my new blogging series “How to Style It”. If you missed last week’s post on how to style a LBD you can check it out here. Today I am going to focus on the statement blouse as my staple item for the outfits I am going to create. Speaking for myself, I own countless amounts of blouses but I always feel myself reverting back to the same two or three that I always wear. You’ve probably seen them featured on here actually; I am always wearing my monochrome check blouse and Aztec print one. So today I am going to show you three different ways to wear your favourite statement blouse and hopefully it will give you inspiration for future outfits and looks on how to style what you already own.
First up I am going to show you how to wear it for an everyday casual look that you can wear to college, out to lunch, shopping or just wandering around aimlessly. I really like the style of this blouse and it is quite similar to one I own ( it will be giving me outfit inspiration too!), it can be easily transitioned from a day to night look and I will be showing you how below. Here, I have teamed this monochrome polka dot blouse with this cute skater style button up denim skirt. This skirt is perfect for the spring and would go with lots of different things depending on the look you were going for. I have also added this chunky knit cardigan, tan cut out boots and a boxy tan handbag. I would advise wearing tight now to avoid frostbite, but you could wear this look in the summer by switching sandals for the boots and ditching the cardigan.
Second look is a night time look and I am going to show you how to accessorise this blouse with items you hopefully already have in your closet or maybe your friend’s wardrobe! Here, I have teamed the blouse with high waist leather look leggings and chunky burnt orange accessories. I love these shoes and bag and think they go great with this look if you want to add a pop of colour to an otherwise monochrome outfit.
Finally here’s a way to wear this blouse to a more formal occasion, perhaps maybe for a job interview. To make this blouse pop for your job interview, I have teamed it with this colour block blazer. I think it looked great teamed with this red blazer for an extra pop of colour, if you didn’t like the red you could also sub this blazer in for a bright pink one or if colour wasn’t your think you could create a monochrome outfit by adding a plain black fitted blazer. Keep accessories minimal, tuck the blouse into this pencil skirt, add some heels, simple make up and a nice chignon bun hairstyle and you are ready to go get that job.
I really hoped you liked the post and I would love to know what staple item you would like me to feature next week! The more suggestions and ideas the merrier, feel free to comment below, on twitter or my Facebook page to let me know!
