The White BlouseA classic with many faces

As female wardrobe basics go, many classics and timeless “it” pieces have been designed, and the classic white blouse is clearly among them. In a closet full of dark pants and skirt suits, the white blouse is the ideal equalizer, makes for variety in the outfit, brings out the colors to great effect and makes the wearer take on an air of seriousness and reliability. But it can do even more than that – from classic to romantic, from casual to sexy, from day wear to evening wear, from tailored to oversized – there are no limits to its uses! 

Business Allrounder

The classic white blouse belongs in every woman’s wardrobe. It is a permanent feature of business wears and adds a certain kind of strict neutrality to even the most clear-cut pants or skirt suits. But also variations of the tailored cotton classic have long been declared fit for business, at the head of them all the beautiful new silk model made of Crêpe de Chine by BOSS Womenswear, whose floating drape will provide for a luxuriously flattering fit or one of the new voluminous blouse styles with waist belt. These can also be paired easily with tight pants styles and pencil skirts.

Cool Casual

Nothing looks cooler and at the same time smarter than a white blouse in combination with jeans. The very definition of a wardrobe staple by BOSS Orange is the reinterpretation of the oversized look in the style of a shirt blouse, featuring concealed button-up placket and lapels to keep rolled-up sleeves in place for additional accents. And though this classic will always look great to jeans, it will also put the new slim-fit pant styles into a modern light.

Pretty Perfect

Lace and Broderie Anglaise are this season’s must-haves: choosing romance for exciting new combinations. The white blouse, too, receives a contemporary look through this new transparency. Broderie Anglaise used along the neckline give this sleeveless model from the BOSS Womenswear collection a romantic, summery look, which stands in an interesting contrast to strict, slim silhouettes. A blouse’s front made of lace, as shown by HUGO, provides for the right portion of sexiness but is kept in check by its simple cut. Another new “it” piece is also the Peter Pan collar, which gives every outfit an air of innocence.
