I’m a HUGE fan of blouses, which is no secret if you follow me on Instagram. There’s just something so feminine and soft about them. I also love that they’re versatile: you can pair them with practically anything, from denim shorts to culottes, jeans, and skirts. I find myself reaching for neutral, floral, blush, and soft green colors most, especially this time of year. I’ve picked up a few different styles lately, my favorite of which is this floral blouse.

Blouses: Trends to Watch
When it comes to wardrobe staples, a traditional white blouse feels incredibly essential. Most women have at least one white blouse in their closets. While this non-exciting piece works well for layering, it’s fun to spice things up with on-trend blouses in patterns or with fun sleeve detailing, like ballon sleeves or smocking. Here’s a list of the top blouse trends to watch and consider adding to your closet this year:
1 // Winter styles like satin turtleneck blouses
2 // Ruffles, smocking, and other feminine blouse detailing
3 // Romantic blouse colors like pink, cream, and light blue
4 // Volume sleeves and bell sleeve blouses
5 // Lace detailing and embroidery
6 // Modern blouses with asymmetric hems

Tips for Shopping the Best Spring Blouses in 2019
Whether you’re looking to revamp your traditional white spring blouse in 2019 or incorporate an entirely new on-trend blouse into your wardrobe, here are my tips for shopping the best spring blouses this year.
Tip 1 / Consider whether you want a layering piece of a stand-alone statement blouse
Tip 2 / Set your budget. It can be tempting to spend money on a gorgeous blouse with romantic details, but you may want to spend less money on an on-trend blouse that will be out of style less year than on a staple white blouse that you’ll have for a decade.
Tip 3 / Consider climate and material. If you live somewhere that’s already warm come spring, lightweight textiles like linen are more breathable and will help you avoid sweating in your pretty new piece. Up north or somewhere with more mild spring temperatures? Well, any fabric will do just fine when layered.
