White Blouse - A Thousand Identities

THE HUE WHITE - When white sunlight enters snow, very little of the spectrum is absorbed; almost all of the light is reflected or scattered by the air and water molecules, so the snow appears to be the color of sunlight, white.
 
 
     

The white blouse can be light and floating, impeccable and austere, sumptuous and all-enveloping, tight and close-fitting. It rises up to frame the face. It sculpts the body by transforming itself into a second skin. Imputed with glamour and poetry, freedom and impetuousness, the prim white shirt turns out to have a thousand identities…

There is something refreshing and sophisticated about a crisp White Blouse thrown on for almost any occasion.  This staple can be worn with black pants, shorts, capris, jeans, skirts, under sweaters, over camisoles or for evening soiree's.  Add pearls and relish the classic and unique sparkle to any outfit during daily life.  The simple ensemble is always memorable. Wear a white blouse with a pencil skirt and command attention in the business arena. Or remember how Sharon Stone stole the red carpet at the 1998 Oscars wearing a snow white Gap blouse with a lavender Vera Wang skirt? Breathtaking!  In other words, a wardrobe requires a button down blouse constructed of the finest material.  Spend a little more for one in cotton, one that is fitted and for a silk top for special outings.  All will be worn over and over again.   More importantly, the White Blouse will stand the test of time and look sensational on a Forever Chic Style fashionista.

Which White Blouse to Purchase - Pray Tell?

Let's Begin - Pearls of Wisdom

 

 

 The Classic Audrey - Button Down




    



I.  Classic Cotton Button Down:   Be Audrey Hepburn memorable in a cotton blouse with a point-collar and lustrous white buttons along a raised placket.   A long shirttail hem provides great coverage.  Great with skinny jeans, as a cover up or tucked in for a boxy look while always pretty and perfect.

II.  Stretch Infused Fitted Button Down:  The white shirt with cotton and nylon/Lycra spandex adds stretch creating a fitted shape that is soft to touch along with a point-collar blouse. This piece can easily be worn out or and also tucked in highlighting a woman's silhouette.  Add pearls, scarf or wear alone for a business statement.

 III.  Silky and Refined:  A silk shirt is gorgeous and regal.  The satiny finish adds a dose of beauty to these satiny numbers.   Can be a little pricey but timeless.

"The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world."

— Alicia Keys

 
 

"Cool off in the heat with a white blouse! Shine with inner beauty and dare to be classic and memorable rather than trendy and forgotten.  All the world is a stage; dance with grace and love and light."

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

Kendra Scott - Jewels

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
