Last season was all about boho styles, but this autumn/winter, we’re mixing it up with a new head-turning design – the Victoriana blouse.
For a look that screams drama and fashion know-how, this clever buy is set to be your style saviour over and over again this season.
Easy-wear blouses not only give you the coverage you need, they also make embracing the new season easy. In soft, wearable fabrics and autumn-ready colour palettes, you can pair one with your favourite jeans or tuck into skirts for an instant update.
Not only that, they can also hide a multitude of sins as the weather cools down. From a tummy that’s not feeling at all toned to arms that feel more comfortable covered up and kept from the cold, these clever additions skim and flatter in all the right places.
This season, it’s all about pairing the Victoriana blouse with a pair of flared jeans or trousers, but if that’s a bit ‘too much’ for you, then try tucking on into a structured midi skirt in stand-out material, such as leather.
Embroidery, flattering necklines and plenty of details make them that little bit more special than your average blouse, and the quality of our favourites is so good that they’re bound to last for years to come.
For a look that screams Victorian, opt for black with lace and sheer details. This Lipsy London blouse is a classic that you’ll turn to year after year. Want to up the drama? Pair with black pleated midi ankle boots – all black everything is guaranteed to get you noticed.
Who would have guessed that this gorgeous blouse comes in at under R400? The designer look-a-like is perfect for embracing these seasons romantic styles. In a monochrome colour palette, it’ll add a new season spin on everything you own.
Elastic hems are serious news in the fashion industry, and its one trend we can really get on board with! Comfortable, flattering and reminiscent of our childhood days, this paisley-print style from Mango will look great with black flares and heels.
