Blouses have been a uniform staple for many years. Ever since women entered the workforce, blouses have been a feminine and yet practical choice which many working women choose. They go with everything – trousers, skirts, pinafores and suits. There are many styles to choose from. Blouses can be dressed-up or made casual. They suit every shape and size. WithThe Uniform Edit, all our blouses are completely customisable – meaning even more options. What’s not to love?
A Change in Tide
Over the past few years, the blouse has changed. As trends change, so do uniforms. The blouse has transformed from a more formal, form-fitting and feminine piece into a more flexible wardrobe staple. Offices across the world have become increasingly casual, which is part of the reason behind the blouse’s transformation. The perfect sweet-spot between a structured dress-shirt and polo-shirt, a blouse is a must-have for any modern wardrobe.
The newer style of blouse is looser fitting, with more room to move. This style is incredibly versatile and flattering with a high-degree of comfort – perfect for transitioning straight from a big board meeting to the weekend!
The Uniform Edit offers a few styles of blouses across two fabric options – made of high-quality, long-lasting material. Both fabrics lend themselves to contemporary, comfortable uniforms.
Our polyester chiffon is a wonderful fabric for blouses – retaining femininity and comfort, in one shirt. This fabric is easy care and requires minimal ironing(just another reason to love it!). Blouses made from polyester chiffon are flowy, skimming your curves and creating a lovely silhouette. The effect of the fabric is slightly shimmery.
The effect of this blouse fabric is close to that of a natural fibre, giving a contemporary and more casual look. This material lends itself to the relaxed fit of the shirts and is understatedly elegant. This fabric is smooth and opaque – making it such an easy material to wear and extremely versatile for every outfit in every season.
