I always thought that these type of blouses were reserved for the office only, I had this preconceived idea that they were too boring and stiff to be worn anywhere else, but obviously I learned, that this is not so. This blouse for example, looks anything but boring, it's made of a softer material which helps it look more versatile and it has a super modern and eye catching print. Pairing it with this bright orange skirt brought more life to the look and the platforms gave for a more casual and friendly look. Button-down blouses have become a staple in my closet, knowing how to take advantage of their versatile nature opens up a lot of styling options. There are always really business attire oriented ones, but finding ones with a great print, bright colors or modern fit will be perfect to style up or down. I can definitely see myself styling this blouse with black denim shorts for a super casual look or with sleek pants for a more office friendly version. Hope you like this look!
Let me know what you think!
