White blouses are crisp, classic, and can be dressed up or down for whatever your day demands. Running errands? Throw on an oversized, boyish blouse with your favorite jeans and boots to look put-together but casual. Going out? Pick out a blouse with dramatic details and a patterned pair of pants for a major look that’s both elegant and contemporary.
There are plenty of brands that make white shirts, but this is about separating out the best. Tuckernuck’s White Anais blouse is the tunic-y, flattering shape we love and goes with pretty much everything. Grayson makes affordable, everyday shirts in every color you can think of. The classic white Hero in cotton is the one we reach for the most and they’re size-inclusive, too! Chico’s stain-resistant white shirt means red wine will literally roll off your back, or more likely, sleeves.
Vince is making incredibly beautiful, elegant clothes right now. Check out this button down, which is casual enough for everyday wear but has a special dropped sleeve detail that gives it a slightly more interesting silhouette. Mango’s flowy blouse has a retro Mad Men vibe, but will take you from work to dinner out on the town easily.
Here come the showstoppers. Tibi’s sophisticated but still playful aesthetic means they design pieces grounded in everyday use but with enough detail to make them feel special. The tie top is the perfect example. The casual, robe-like drape with the fancy-feeling black tie makes it an incredibly special piece. This Fabiana Pigna shirt is architectural and sleek, with statement-making sculptural sleeves we can’t get enough of. Wear with a sleek pair of pants and combat-inspired boots for the ultimate cool-girl look.
