    For my second post of “White Haute Week”, as promised, I am sharing another white essential wardrobe piece that I believe should be in every woman’s closet, the white blouse.  Do you have any clothing items, that you feel are reminiscent of a certain era, style, or a particular theme?  The classic white blouse often makes me think of the 1950’s era, when it seems the white blouse was definitely a staple in women’s wardrobes.  The home designs seemed to also be very distinct during that time, with most seemingly being adorned by the era’s popular white picket fence.  Today I’m sharing a modern day take on the essential white blouse, while also incorporating a setting I stumbled upon while driving, that could have easily been a home in a TV sitcom staged in the 1950’s.  In addition, I’m sharing why I believe the white blouse is an essential wardrobe piece.

    Here’s why the white blouse is an essential wardrobe piece.

    It is classic and stylish – This simple and elegant blouse can add instant glam to any outfit.  It is clean and crisp, and enhances any outfit regardless of your personal style.

    It can be worn dressed or casual – The white blouse is yet another very versatile white wardrobe piece.  It can be paired with jeans for a more casual look, or styled with a pair of trousers or a skirt for a more dressed feel.

    It can be worn any time of year – The white blouse is definitely not a seasonal piece.  Wear it with a blazer during fall, underneath a coat during the winter months, and alone in the spring and summer paired with any bottom you choose.  You can easily be stylish year round with the white blouse.

    It is an investment piece – Because the white blouse is so versatile, classic, and works with any outfit, it can be a true investment piece.  Think quality not quantity when purchasing a white blouse, and it will be a staple in your closet for a long time.

    I paired this Banana Republic white blouse with an A-line skirt, and a pointed toe pump, all classic and timeless pieces to me.  The Banana Republic blouse has a tailored fit, and the bonus is that it is a non-iron shirt that is easy to pack and travel with.  The ASOS floral skirt is perfect to pair with a tailored blouse because of the slight flare.  Pairing the skirt with a more fitted blouse gives the look some balance.  The Steve Madden pointed toe pump in this pink tone is a shoe I will definitely wear a lot.  I will wear them with jeans, pants and a dress also. Lastly, the ASOS sequin stripe clutch is one of my favorite bags.  I love wearing it with jeans, to add a little sequin to my casual look.

    Consider adding the white blouse to your wardrobe for endless styling possibilities.  You can shop the items in this post by clicking the links above in “The Look” and “The Look For Less,” or you can visit the Shop Fashion Page here.  Also, you can shop Lulu With Grace partner sales and promotions here.  New partner sales and promotions have recently been added.
