How can I update the traditional white blouse?
The classic white blouse is a wardrobe essential, but you can reinvigorate your look by playing with proportion and fit. A ruffle-front placket or a voluminous sleeve, for example, will take this style staple beyond basic. For a timeless ensemble that will take you anywhere, balance this look with a sophisticated pencil skirt or a city-appropriate slim pant in a neutral tone and keep accessories simple—a delicate necklace and an elegant heel provide the perfect finishing touch. To add drama, experiment with a vibrant color or a statement accessory which will create a striking contrast against the crisp white top.
