Adding a casual element with white canvas sneakers.
As much as I rely on basic t-shirts and solid blouses, I love an interesting blouse sprinkled in here and there to shake things up. Whether it’s a cool cutout, fun sleeve, off-the-shoulder feature, or a quirky pattern, having a few of these in your closet elevates outfitting potential. This chambray and lace blouse from Chicwish does just that. The wider bell sleeve and cool cutout + lace hybrid detail make it really interesting, while the lace and scalloped edging keep it really feminine. All I needed to build an outfit around this was a simple pair of high-waisted denim shorts and white canvas sneakers (a steal from H&M). I love the casual vibe the sneakers lend to the look, although you can easily dress this blouse up with a skirt or a pair of skinny trousers + pumps.
Shop the look:
A chambray and lace blouse like this combines a lot of things I’ve been digging lately. Chambray is such a go-to because it’s comfortable without sacrificing the style factor. The lace adds a girly touch here without going over the top. I love the remix potential here, too. This blouse goes from a casual weekend outfit (like I’m wearing here) to something a little more dressed up by adding pumps and a skirt.
