Today, I'm starting a new series of blog posts entitled "You Search, I Answer". Each week, I'll pick one of the search keywords that people use to find my blog and write a post based on it. Today's post is based on the search "button up silk blouse outfits".
Ahh...the button up silk blouse. So feminine sounding. Silk! Blouse!, but generally over-sized, boxy, and distinctly masculine, even in a soft color like blush.
The key to styling the button up silk shirt is simple bold pieces with a touch of the feminine. Ruffles and florals are too overtly feminine, while trousers strike a "Sally from Third Rock from the Sun" note. (Seriously. Watch a few episodes on Netflix.) Here's my formula for getting it right:
button up silk blouse + sleek skirt + bold belt + boots + 1 piece of statement jewelry = outfit perfection
I used this same formula with this blouse and a maxi skirt.
Silk Blouse - Ann Taylor, Thrifted
Skirt - Banana Republic
Belt - Flea Market
Boots - Vintage, Thrifted
Bracelet - Vintage, Garage Sale
