Summer Blouses

 

As the summer days approach us I think it is best to toss on a lightweight blouse, flirty skirt and great sandals … you look polished and fresh but still comfortable in the heat! I have been a fan of cardigans the last few years and now I am expanding into summer blouses. The reason I stayed away in the past was that they don’t always give much shape and I don’t want to look sloppy or baggy.  Well ladies if you’re like me and like a little shape & style to your summer shirts here are some items to pick up the next time you hit the mall!

Inspirations of Style: Peplum

Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !
