The classic among blouses, the fit is similar to a men’s shirt. In addition to shirt collars and long sleeves, shirt blouses always have cuffs. The cut can vary between straight and fitted. Some designs are finished with a back yoke. Despite the similarities to a men’s shirt, the shirt blouse has one important difference: The button placket is always on the left for women’s blouses.
Tip: A versatile piece: Go ahead and wear a poncho over a shirt blouse. Wear the collar outside of the round neckline of the poncho. These blouses also look fabulous combined with cardigans, jumpers or on their own for a casual outfit. Teamed with a blazer, the shirt blouse is also appropriate for the office.
