Pleasant peasant blouses
July 27, 2015, 5:30 pm

Seeking advice on how to wear your favourite light and billowy peasant blouse that you are super-comfy in. Believe it or not, the breezy silhouette wasn’t just made for beachside bonfires and lunches at a quaint little resort. With the right pairings, the top is really versatile. It can be worked into your office, weekend and even date-night outfits with total ease. Here is how you style this season’s piece immediately.

Casual attire: Create a timeless, casual look by pairing a white peasant blouse with distressed flare jeans.  Denim is a failsafe place to start, but if you want to get a little more contemporary, then a pair of tailored skinny jeans in either lively or dark colors will also work.

For the bohemian style, opt for a simple oversized fuss-free peasant blouse and a boyfriend-fit jean with a frayed edge and team it with white trainers. Add the final boho touch with a stack of gold rings brandishing stone details.

Play with skirts: When it comes to the summer days, you might want to stick with bright, summery outfits, possibly with some floral prints, have the shoes contrast and add a pretty bag to really make things pop. Think a simple peasant top, throw on a printed skirt, maxi or knee-length skirts are the best options, and select platform sandals to hit the right fashion notes.

Additionally, you can tap into refined style by pairing a single coloured peasant blouse with a pencil skirt. It makes for a very chic look; if your skirt and blouse are tailored and complement each other. Accessorize with metallic statement earrings for sparkle, and lastly, you need stylish heels.

Fun with overalls:  Overalls are one of the hottest trends this spring and summer, and they introduce a casual nature to your wardrobe, particularly suited for fun printed peasant blouses.

To create a rough-and-ready ensemble, you can look fresh for the summer in a plain white peasant blouse, dark blue overalls and brown sandals. With cowboy boots, the peasant blouse is given a nice country balance to the outfit. Of course, you can go the other direction by finding a peasant blouse in a dazzling print to wear under overalls in a modern cut and extra trimmings to look amazing.

It is all about the outerwear: As a fashionista, you must have invested in some stylish fashion coats that are your new best friends. Get extra wear out of your whimsical peasant tops by donning a fashion-forward overcoat on top.  Sleek ladylike options work best for structured peasant blouses, and you really can’t go wrong with a pair of pointy toe pumps with a slim heel, as it instantly elongates your shape. The peasant blouse can be styled with any outerwear from the loose cardigan, the simple utility jacket and the more tailored trench coats to make it feel special.
