Twenty-five Pretty Printed Blouses for a Ladylike Fall


While taking cues from the boys is an effortless way to get dressed this fall, it’s often more fun to embrace all things girly. A ladylike sheath is one option, but should that prove too fussy, a pretty patterned blouse is a versatile closet staple that adds a sweet touch to any ensemble. When tucked into a pencil skirt, it’s full-on feminine. While paired with slouchy jeans or under a sharply cut suit, it suddenly has that ideal boy-meets girl balance. Florals — like Girl. by Band of Outsider’s delicate pink buds or Thakoon Addition’s red blossoms — are a more traditional take on the classic women’s work shirt. But if abstract designs catch your eye, Reiss’s hazy green print or rag & bone’s arrowlike pattern are a more art-school take on wearing the trend. Even Equipment, a French brand that made the solid silk button-up feel fresh again, now offers an array of patterns, including a particularly eye-catching navy version flecked with glittery gold roses. Click ahead to see these and more, because lusting after pretty new shirts beats sitting at home waiting for some hurricane.
