The blouse has been a woman's wardrobe staple for centuries. Created as the feminine version of a man's shirt, the original name was 'shirtwaister' – as it reached to just below and tucked in at the waist – had long sleeves with cuffs, a turnover collar and buttons down the front. However, as with most items of women's clothing the design has evolved and the blouse now comes in many different shapes and cuts so there will always be a blouse that's perfect for any occasion, to match any outfit and to suit any woman whatever her shape, size or style. The trick is to team it properly, depending on what it's being worn with – skirt, suit, trousers, leggings, jeans or even shorts. What working woman doesn't have a blouse in her wardrobe! A formal, fitted version is perfect for the office, that important interview. A blouse in silk, satin or chiffon can dress up an outfit. Wear cotton or denim to create a more casual look. The right blouse can jazz up any jaded basic and will always add that touch of individual style. Design is no longer restricted to that of the classic 'shirtwaister' and blouses come in all lengths, can be smocked, high-necked, ruffle-collared, short-sleeved or have no sleeves, be plain or come in patterns ranging from the exotic such as leopard-print to ethnic-style or military. It's a great item for mixing and matching and a new blouse can create a whole new outfit, with prices to suit every pocket.
