THE COLOR-BLOCKED STATEMENT-MAKER
Ready to take your top up a notch? Reach for something with a subtle (or not quite so subtle) design and you’ll totally get yourself there in no time flat.
We are totally head over heels for this oversized cotton blouse from designer Diane Von Furstenberg. The flowing ruffles coupled with the bold black piped trim and flirtatious wide neckline make this piece perfect for throwing on with any look when you want to really have all eyes on you.
THE CUTESY LITTLE CROP
Who says a bold blouse needs to be oversized? An easy way to add a touch of flair to any outfit is with a statement making crop-top.
If you’re down to try this piece this season, reach for something with a bold print and subtle ruffled detailing for the ultimate statement-making combination. We love the asymmetrical design of this polka dot crop top from H&M – it’ll totally go with all of our favorite bottoms, whether a midi skirt or a pair of high-waisted leggings.

Opt for a tailored piece with bold oversized accents, like this totally gorgeous blouse from Zara. The full-length sleeves paired with the sleek layered ruffled yoke and eye-catching poplin tie at the neckline make this baby the perfect must-have for any timeless style lover.
