Striped or checked, sober vintage colours and floral patterns, velvet and silk fabrics. The blouse is once again the key piece for various women outfits at this time of the year. With the arrival of autumn, bright colours and pastel shades give way to iconic pieces, like the denim or checked shirt, and women’s blouses in more understated, romantic and nostalgic hues.
The two fashionable pieces for this period are the denim and the checked shirt. Two pieces with a completely different look but with the same cool, sporty feel. A denim shirt, in classic indigo or light blue, can be worn next to the skin with patterned trousers of a comfortable cut and cloth, whereas the checked shirt is worn to better effect with a pair of skinny jeans. For the woman who is after a sporty-chic look both these outfits are perfect with a pair of white sneakers.
In this year’s new AUTUMN WINTER collections, women’s blouses are in neutral, cold colours. Light and dark shades of grey, and sumptuous Bordeaux dominate the scene; two colours that provide a touch of stately elegance. For a refined autumn outfit wear an oversized striped or pinstriped grey tunic with three-quarter sleeves and black leather ankle boots, or a blouse with vertical stripes and a long, soft bell-shaped skirt, for a complete wine-coloured look.
Another theme for the season is precious fabrics, pleasant to touch and feel against the skin. Thus women’s blouses are more romantic: botanically inspired prints and plain colours such as petrol blue are rendered precious in silk and velvet. Do you think they are too statement, too much? Try wearing them up with a pair of jeans for a casual-chic effect, or a pair of classic trousers and high heels for a more sophisticated, refined look.
