Item of the Week: Wrapover Blouses
Jun 12, 2017
I love a little drama in my wardrobe. Whether it’s a party in the back (like on this OdlR top) or a dramatic shoulder (like on this Bailey44 blouse), I like when a piece of clothing makes a bold statement. And the wrapover blouse trend certainly makes a statement.
I’ve seen these wrapover tops on a lot of bloggers lately. My one issue is that they usually choose tops that also have a dramatic ruffled sleeve. The voluminous wrap with the ruffle sleeve looks a bit too Carmen Miranda for me. But this H&M blouse has a more conservative sleeve, making it a nice piece for the office if you style it right. Tune in tomorrow for more advice on that topic.
Until then, I also love this $69 WAYF top from Nordstrom in your choice of white or blue-stripe. H&M is also selling a simple wrapover sweater, which would look great over a camisole as a cardigan alternative. You can also add a bell sleeve, like on this bold, red boohoo Nora top. For something very conservative, this French Connection blouse is perfect for a more staid take on this trend.
Plus-size? I found this Eloquii top, which is a bit more conservative for the office. Forever21 has a surplice top with a bit more drama to it. Petite ladies, I hunted around, but I didn’t find anything I really liked. I’ll give it another shot tonight, and if I find something, add it to tomorrow’s post.
