The Shirt Every Wardrobe Needs
We are strong believers in the crisp cotton blouse. We believe in it like we believe in no pants Sunday, and that’s a lot. Looking back to the 1920s, a time of post-war optimism and women’s liberation, we would like to thank Miss Coco Chanel. She changed the blouse from less fem and frill and more menswear inspired which paved the way for powerful everyday womenswear such as elegant suits, simple trousers (Chanel was one of the first women in history to wear trousers!) and even the basic long sleeve tee. Ever since then we’ve taken this timeless classic and given it multiple new looks. It’s been deconstructed, embroidered, worn backwards, slipped off the shoulder, and layered underneath anything and everything.
The latest NYFW showed us its versatility once again with designers such as Public School, Monse, ADEAM and more slicing and dicing the cotton shirt into new wave styles. The beauty of this top is that it can be changed and altered while maintaining its timelessness and giving off that slightly structured, put together look (even when you’re totally losing it inside). Below we’ve pulled together 14 of the best. From classics to modern upgrades, these power tops are all wardrobe staples.
The crescent-shaped sleeves elevates this menswear classic and is the perfect spring transitional top.
Buttoned cuffs? No way, this blouse rocks tie strings to cinch the sleeves.
