Nothing is quite as simple as a white button-up blouse. It’s such an effortless piece that always classes up an outfit. Take this look for example. I’m wearing casual-looking ankle boots and jeans, but the white blouse somehow makes the whole look feel a little more professional. What a powerful article of clothing!
Fortunately for me, I scored this loose-fitting blouse from H&M a few months ago at a remarkably reasonable price (this one is no longer for sale, but you can find similar-looking blouses from H&M here and here). If you are looking for classic pieces to last you a long time, this is a good place to splurge. Decide what looks best on you—structured or loose-fitting—and find a blouse that works best with your style.
Amp the class factor with bold accessories. I adorned this look with my new and fabulous Michael Kors watch, which was a Christmas present from the husband, (Thanks husband!) and my favorite chunky necklace from a Banana Republic outlet store.
