Classic Blouses are truly the backbone of our wardrobes. We wear them for almost every occasion and can style them with shorts and jeans to skirt and suits. For casual events to dressy occasions. They come in every fabric and style. If you were to count just how many you might have in your closet, what do you think that number might be? Twenty-five? Fifty? I’ll bet the number would surprise you!
In this post, I’m including three affordable finds from the current Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which is now open to all and will continue through the 30th of August. All three blouses are versatile, all are well-made, and all are basic pieces you will wear again and again.
To make things simple, I’ve styled all three blouses with black Ab-solution Skinny Jeans from Wit & Wisdom, also from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Honestly, these pants are SO comfortable and the fit is incredible–they are not those super tight skinny jeans some of us are growing tired of. The price is right at $45, too!
The White Blouse
Is there anything more basic or more classic than the white blouse? When in doubt, I always reach for a classic white blouse and I bet you do, too. You can wear it with virtually ANYTHING, including a white bottom piece, and it just always works.
This is a blouse by Vince Camuto who makes beautiful pieces. While their pieces are perfect for workwear they are also great for every day. This three-quarter sleeve rumpled fabric blouse comes in 6 colors for under $50 during the sale.
I have the sleeveless version, a rumpled satin blouse in yellow, and it’s a gorgeous top. You can see it in the post My Review of Cariuma Sneakers. It’s available during the Nordstrom Sale, too, at a great price, in several colors! Both look great under sweaters or blazers.
Leopard V-Neck Blouse
While I already have a couple of leopard tops, I decided I could always use another.☺️How about you? I love the simple style of this leopard blouse. It can be left out for a simple flowy look or tucked in with a half-tuck or full-tuck with a belt–or not. Knowing that leopard is a neutral that goes with almost anything makes it super versatile.
Just adding a top like this with your favorite jeans takes them up a notch and creates a stylish look at any time. Can’t beat that.
Under a blazer or with a pencil skirt and you’ve got the perfect professional look for the office. Or for zooming, where all you have to do is wear this top with some stylish earrings and your favorite sweats and you’ll look great from the waist up!! Lol!
Classic Black Top
Oh, my gosh! This twist front top was such a surprise! It’s super soft and so flattering! I read that it’s a bit demeaning and body shaming to say “flattering” as it means “slimming” and the goal isn’t always for everyone to look slim. I totally agree with that and have had to rethink my meaning. So by flattering, I guess I mean that black looks good on almost everyone, and the style looks nice on most ladies. Hmm. Something to think about, isn’t it?
In any case, the lower length hits in a good spot and the front knot gives it some style. The fabric is a bit thicker so it will be a nice piece for the cooler weather in the fall and winter.
If you’re in the market to add some stylish blouses to you wardrobe–and who isn’t?–take advantage of the great prices during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and pick one or two of these classic blouses.
