Effortlessly chic style starts with classic blouses. As you curate your closet, start with capsule wardrobe basics — specifically, capsule wardrobe tops! While we love a statement shirt with all of the bells and whistles, neutral dress shirts and tees are some of the most versatile pieces you can have in your collection.
Airy, lightweight, and easy to layer, a crisp dress shirt is a must-have that's great to style not only for your 9 to 5 but also for those casual picnics and happy hour events. Wear it buttoned to the office, then pop your collars or knot the front for your weekend outings — they work well whether you pair them with chic flared jeans or cropped pants. For a casual look that's still polished, venture out with a chambray shirt to pair with your favorite denim skirt and camel belt. And, of course, another one of our favorite everyday blouses is the t-shirt. Keep it underneath a blazer for a more elevated look, or pair it with shorts and your favorite sandals for a breezy, warm-weather ensemble.
