The White Button Down Blouse

A simple white blouse could be the most versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. It can be dressed up in a suit, paired with slacks or a skirt, and even dressed down with a pair of jeans or shorts. There’s seemingly no wrong way to wear a white blouse.

Since The Limited is having a really good sale, I decided to pull some pieces from their site for examples.

The Essential Shirt:


Dress it up with a suit and heels:


A pencil skirt and heels:

Slacks and heels:

Dress it down with jeans and flats:

Shorts and sandals:

Accessories can make or break an outfit, so with the Essential shirt I’d more than likely stick with a short necklace–could be as simple as a solitaire type piece or more a more advanced statement piece. I’d wear studs or small hoop earrings, too–depending on the necklace; statement necklace would call for simple studs, but with a simple solitaire type necklace I’d go for the hoops and the size could vary with hoops depending on your hairstyle.

As previously stated, these pieces are all from The Limited but you can find dupes anywhere. I’d probably try H&M if you’re looking for a less expensive suit. The shoes are all pulled from The Sole Society. These are just pieces to get your creative juices flowing. This is just how I’d wear the basic white button down blouse and is representative of my style. If y’all have any other ways to wear it, I’d love to see  and show you off–e-mail me at lookfabuless@gmail.com!
