Beautiful Blouses for the Spring and Summer

One of the best ways to add freshness to a spring and summer wardrobe is to add a trendy new blouse or two. Beautiful blouses can transform many well-loved basic pieces and make you feel very fashion-forward without revamping your wardrobe. That, of course, is right in keeping with our growing awareness that “less is more” and more isn’t always better.

But, take note! These are not tees or pullover-type tops. When we describe a blouse, we mean a garment in which the textile has more substance. In general, blouses are more stylish and have some polish, and that’s what makes them a good addition to enhance a wardrobe.

There are a few new trends that are fun, pretty, and playful and can work for many different style types. This year, you’ll see some collarless and sleeveless blouses, but you’ll find high collars and bell sleeves on the opposite end of the style spectrum. This year is a no-limits year, and designers are taking a no-holds-barred approach to design.  Fashionistas are having fun and playing with various looks, so follow their lead and don’t be afraid to take a fashion risk or two. If you feel good, it shows, so have some fun with your wardrobe!
