The House of Blouse
Fitted Button Down Blouses
The Perfect Blouse is only as good as its tailoring. At Marilyn’s, we take great pride at fitting it to your body style to make it look impeccably yours.
Button-down blouses are popular because their style can be worn by many body types; no matter the size and in most social or work situations, button down blouses are appropriate and effortless. Paired with trousers or jeans a button down blouse can be the perfect canvas for incredible statement jewelry and pops of color with a phenomenal shoe. As a foundational piece, a button-down blouse sets the stage for bigger and better accessories.
The button down is the perfect transitional item, from work-to-weekend it pulls everything together. In smart stripes or eye catching solids, they are easy to match or dress up anything because of their starched collar and simple sleeves. Whether understated by dressing it down with simple accessories or standing out by opting for ruffles or custom cuffs, a blouse can be worn to any event or even lend itself to be the event itself.
While keeping in the button down family, blouses are also available in free flowing peasant style, which emphasizes a more fitted bust and billowy waist. Perfect for warmer weather, these Blouses emphasize necklines and structured sleeves while allowing you to be light and airy around your body. These flirty fits allow a more casual feel and have you pool-side and curfew free.
Ruffles and Ruching
Ruffled and ruched blouses create an especially feminine look while still looking professional and in control. From boardroom to conference room, ruffles and embellishments on a blouse speak of an effortless sophistication and style, that can easily be translated into a cool confidence. While Silks and scarfs can be added to any Blouse, the ruffles and adornments really make this Blouse a stand alone item. While modest and sensible it can be brought from wallflower to center stage.
