There are certain pieces that are essential to every wardrobe and the ivory silk blouse – classic, sophisticated, and elegant – is one of them. Depending on how you style them (i.e. with a black lace bra underneath or an extra button left undone… oops), they can also be considered sexy. Basically, they work with almost anything in your wardrobe.
Truth be told, I do wish silk blouses did not cause my underarms to break out into a sweat but as they say, the show must go on!
The ivory silk blouse can be styled with jeans for a more casual everyday look or dressed up with a great pair of trousers or mini/midi skirt. It’s also a great base for layering. I love to wear mine under a sweater vest, a cashmere crewneck sweater, or a tailored blazer.
Speaking of cashmere, Salie66, a luxe cashmere brand, is offering all Fortune Inspired readers 15% off their collection using the code FORTUNE15 at checkout. This code can be used online or at their NYC showroom (by appointment only), today through November 14th.
The Ivory Blouse
No one does an ivory silk blouse quite like Nili Lotan. Her collection is the best mix of classic cuts and statement silhouettes, from this slim-fit ivory button-down to this tuxedo-inspired silk blouse with a ruffled collar (this tie-neck ruffled blouse is also a fave).
For those looking for a romantic-inspired silk blouse, check out this Victorian-style blouse from Zimmermann. I love the turtleneck collar and blouson sleeves – super chic.
If you prefer a collarless style, it’s worth checking out Kopi Halperin’s stretch silk blouse. The fit looks simply divine.
Not Your Ordinary Ivory Blouse
These next few styles are not your ordinary ivory silk blouse, but they were too good not to include.
How sophisticated is this Envelope 1976 ruched crepe de chine blouse with padded shoulders? If you’re looking for the perfect elevated blouse to complete an outfit, this is the one.
If you like floral prints and a sprinkle of bohemian style, Ulla Johnson’s puffed shoulder, silk blend blouse is swoon-worthy.
