The New White Blouse

The latest way to wear a white blouse: filmy white blouses with black skirts or trousers for dressier events

Black and white is nothing new, but how you wear the combo means the difference between looking current, or just looking dull. It’s not rocket science, but putting black and white together in new ways is just good style sense. We’re seeing a lot of the sexy white blouse with basic black (this month’s Vogue spotlights the look, featuring tops with “gauzy ruffles and filmy bell sleeves”). All in all, think menswear with a little sexy 40s styling thrown in for good measure—a white button down shirt like this one from LaRedoute, $34.99, and a black pencil skirt, like this one from Macy’s, on sale for $30.80.
