Trend To Wear Now: Fall Statement Blouses
The first hint of autumn air introduces this season’s chic update as it sends Midwestern fashionistas into a frenzy for fall—and amid the celebratory shopping sprees, let’s not forget the pieces that foray into more stylish territory than the average cable-knit sweater.
In a response to 2015’s spring/summer runway ode to the “sophisticated ’70s” trend, we’re now seeing blouses in a whole new light thanks to the rise of a flirty, frilly and slightly Victorian tribute to the essential wardrobe piece. With details that include delicate embroidery, breezy florals and sheer sleeves, you might think you’ve stepped back in time, but this season’s take elevates this staple to a more modern luxury, spinning a timeless tale that will add a touch of romance to your wardrobe for seasons to come.
