I probably own north of a dozen white blouses, and will not bat an eye adding more to the wardrobe. When I have no idea what to wear, I can always lean into a white blouse in an on-trend or fashion-forward cut paired with white jeans or my favorite dark-wash skinnies. I also happen to think that buying any top in stark white is a great bet, regardless of price tag — white tends to look more expensive than a lot of other colors for some reason. At any rate: right now, it’s all about volume — big sleeves, dramatic wrist detailing, a cropped or cinched silhouette to offset it all. And no one does a white, frothy volume quite like Cecilie Bahnsen (seen above and below), whose pieces are at the tippy top of my lust list. I would love to own this or this.
Below, a range of white statement blouses (at all pricepoints), taking cues from these street style stunners:
CRISP WITH A CINCHED WAIST ($70!)
VERSATILE WRAP TOP WITH PUFF SLEEVES (UNDER $35!)
OFF THE SHOULDER GANNI (PERFECT WITH A ROMANTIC FLORAL MIDI SKIRT OR LINEN TROUSERS)
MATERNITY PICK (WEAR WITH YOUR BIGGEST SHADES)
A FROTHY FEMININE TAKE (UNDER $100)
P.S. Another big trend for spring: statement headbands.
P.P.P.S. Still not over the Theranos scandal?
