I’m thrilled to see Spring 2015 open with a larger assortment of blouse silhouettes. For a few seasons now, blouses have looked a tad basic and straight, with little variety in shape, fabric or colour. That’s changing now, with some thanks to the boho chic trend

Note that blouses are NOT the same as shirts. Blouses are floppy, soft, drapey, and available in all sorts of styles. Shirts are stiffer and straighter button-through styles that resemble a man’s shirt. Browse through all the colour options.

It’s nice to see blouses with a little more sleeve interest, neck detailing, and hem treatment. The integrity is more conventionally feminine and romantic, which makes quite the refreshing change alongside the ongoing upscale sweatshirt trend. I’m enjoying the emergence of delicate patterns in drapey styles with just enough structure. Looks like another great retail season is on its way.
