When you think of peasant blouses, it's hard not to be reminded of milkmaids, old-fashioned poets or maybe something that your grandma once wore. It's so “uncool” you couldn't possibly see yourself wearing anything like this, right?
Wrong! Blouses come in all shapes and sizes. From cotton to silk, with collars and without, usually loose fitting, sometimes gathered at the waist, sometimes styled with a waistband or belt, from pretty bow to Victoriana, peasant to ruffle, a tie or a soft bow at the neck, maybe some embroidery or decorations - there’s officially no stopping the blouse.
Not only is it perfect for summer, but an embroidered blouse is the ideal top to wear to work. Rushing out of the office for post work drinks? Just add some heels and a dash of lippy and you’re ready for some cocktails.
One of the strongest summer trends this season, blouses rocked their way down runways everywhere from Chloe to Alberta Ferretti. And it's not just designers embracing the blouse, with the high street showing some serious love for 2015's summer staple. From yellow to orange to navy, you won’t be disappointed.
