MCLV Style | Classic Blouse

A classic blouse is a great piece to include in a well-rounded wardrobe. It’s versatile and can be easily dressed up or dressed down. In my mind, it’s the perfect day-to-night piece as well. A great blouse can effortlessly take you from the boardroom to cocktails with colleagues to an amazing dinner – All with an elegance and ladylike dash.

When this gorgeous blouse arrived from GANT, I was debating how best to showcase the piece. I was leaning towards pairing it with a classic black pencil skirt and sharing a work-ready business casual look, when I realized that I actually wanted to wear it out that day. So I tossed the pencil skirt on the bed and pulled out my favorite black jeans and trench coat.

This is a great example of the type of style that I tend towards during my downtime. It’s put together, but it’s not overly trendy, colorful, or busy. I like classic pieces that I can wear in different ways, season after season. Both this blouse and trench coat are great examples of high-quality investment pieces that you can get years of wear out of instead of tossing them out after one year. {Check out my Why I Shop Vintage and Consignment blog post for more about my thoughts on disposable, fast-fashion.}

How would YOU style this blouse?
