In celebration of the hottest day of the year so far – I believe it reached up to 25°C in some parts of the UK yesterday – I thought I would do a little round-up of some of the prettiest and season-appropriate blouses available both online and in-store.
Spring is well and truly underway, with the lighter evenings and the Easter Bank Holiday less than a week away, I feel it’s finally time to bring out those pretty pastel shades and crisp whites for the warmer weather that lies ahead.
With embroidery, frills, lace, ruffles and broderie anglaise, the choice really is infinite when it comes to the perfect spring blouse. While many may incorporate these popular trends currently dominating the ever-changing fashion world, others retain a more traditional and classic simplicity.
A perfect accompaniment to light-wash jeans, A-line skirts or smart chinos, I’ve chosen a few of my favourites below which give a gentle nod to the new season. Whether you’re looking to revive your 9-5 office attire, or looking to jazz up a casual weekend outfit, embroidery, stripes and delicate detailing can work wonders.
While a crisp white shirt will always remain a firm wardrobe staple, a blouse can offer more versatility and wearability for every day wear. So, whether you’re a florals girl, looking to indulge in the much loved ruffles trend or prefer the traditional lace detailing, I think these five blouses will have you covered for spring.
