The shopping temptation surrounding all that new season style goodness is off the scale right now. From slinking past those perfectly prepped, autumnal shop windows, to artfully avoiding the finger tap on AW17 online offerings - the sartorial coaxing is practically unbearable. So much good stuff. Too little time. Where to begin? The humble blouse and shirt are fashion building blocks, so we’re looking for separates to get started…
Work breakfast? Drinks with the girls? Sassy Friday night date? Yes, the LBD is an eternal fave, but for a little more versatility and much-needed practicality when running around town, it’s tough to beat the beauty of a blouse. On the hunt for the dream shirt or pleated sleeve? Luckily, Simply Be, available in sizes 12-32, are currently nailing it with their tones, textures and silhouettes.
Not quite ready for the knit? Think gorgeous velvet, molten metallics, fierce embroidery, monochrome prints, statement ruffles and winter florals. But the best part? Simply throw on, enjoy and team with jeans, leather trousers (for autumn, we’re loving cigarette cuts), killer ankle boots and some fresh accessories, for a fuss-free look that’s also great for taking you from desk-to-disco. Zero night-before planning/style headaches needed when you’ve blouse ammo at the ready.
Plus, we’re really digging those pussy bow styles, high necks and foil prints. Autumn dressing never looked so good.

Never underestimate the tuck - Loosely tuck the blouse or shirt in for an ultra cool look that will also show off your curves. Often, just the front tucked in looks more modern than all the way around.
Mix textures - If you’re a slave to the dark side and are likely to choose a black fabric, add interest with a touch of metallic, a dose of opulent velvet or a bold lip to lift your complexion.
Fashion juxtaposition - The soft shape of a swishy blouse, contrasted with the structure of tailoring, is the ultimate style combination. Keep trousers slightly cropped at the ankle for a flash of skin.
