The White Statement Blouse.

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:

*Note the chic pea at top is wearing that Jacquemus bag I’ve been lusting after! (You can get the look for less with this Mango score.)

P.P.P.S. Still not over the Theranos scandal?

  1. So many good options here, especially the Cecilie Bahnsens! Major heart eyes over those. I have a Velvet by Graham & Spencer puff-sleeve white top that I purchased over the winter & have been saving for warm weather … think I may bust it out next week!

    Thinking of you in these waning days of your pregnancy, and sending prayers and good thoughts for a smooth delivery! xx
