Quick Note: After my talk yesterday of loving my Cole Haan shoes, they have a sale on their clearance items today and tomorrow. Take 50% off their clearance prices with code SUMMER50. Just passing along…
On to today’s outfit:
With this blouse, I wanted to touch on a small styling consideration that I think can make a big difference in the polished look and flattering nature of an outfit. For some, it may be obvious. But here are three ways I could theoretically wear this blouse – belted, untucked, or tucked.
Untucked ~ Clearly the untucked option looks a bit sloppy, and it also breaks up my body into somewhat unflattering proportions. So I’ll pass on wearing that in public (except that I already posted on the most public of forums – the Internet).
Belted ~ Although the belted option still results in the shirt falling at a similar place on my legs, I think the belt makes the look a bit more intentional and adds definition to my waist. You can almost never go wrong taking a boxy shirt and adding a more shapely silhouette with a bit of styling (a belt, a blazer, etc…). The finished edges of the bottom hem make a belted option an acceptable casual remixing alternative for this blouse.
