10 White Blouses to Keep It Cool This Spring

A crisp white blouse can go with almost any outfit or occasion. But which one is the right option for you? Check out our top 10 choices to get some fashion inspiration.
Blouse feature

The white blouse is ever-present and a closet must-have. Gone are the days of finding only a button-up-Oxford, which needed a bit of variety as much as we loved it. Now, as we shift into a modern era, the white blouse has also shifted to maintain its ubiquity.

Transformative Properties

In your closet, the white blouse serves its function for work and play. In the summer, a light cotton or linen blouse goes from ‘comfortable in the outdoors’ to ‘not entirely freezing while indoors.’ In the winter, a crisp white collar poking out from under a sweater adds an air of polish and an extra layer of warmth! And yes, you can wear white after Labor Day! 

The proportions of a neat, white blouse will transform itself, you, and the wardrobe piece with which you pair, from casual shorts/skirts, evoking weekend comfort, to slinky cigarette pants for cocktails and even the formal ball skirt. Many designers, like Carolina Herrera and Donna Karan, feature these looks regularly on their runways paired with an ever-universal crisp, white blouse.

To tuck… or not?

I know women who wouldn’t be caught dead leaving the house in an untucked shirt, whereas I also know plenty of women who find a tucked-in shirt to be binding and high maintenance, so this is really going to be a unique call for every Prime Woman. Consider doing both! It’s a modern look to tuck just in front and let the sides and back stay out. Certainly, it would take just the right pairing to pull off un-tucked in more formal situations, but it certainly is doable. The same goes for casual scenarios where the constant tuck can appear as a bit ‘Stepford Wife’ in appearance.

Do what you feel is most comfortable. This means accepting health conditions and time value as much as the overall aesthetic. If you feel uncomfortable, chances are you look uncomfortable.

Check back here often, as we will be swapping out the selections from time to time, as each season brings slight twists to the classics.
