LONDON: If I can think of one piece of clothing that reminds me of summer all year round, it is a blouse. It always feels light on your skin and you can wear it under a woolen sweater or a winter coat and you still feel not heavily dressed.
Also, it always gives you an elegant touch, something soft, fragile, extremely feminine, even when a men’s shirt is worn by a woman it gets this feminine touch. You can wear a blouse with anything, like tweed pants, a wool skirt or a chunky cardigan.
IRMA’s favorite blouses sometimes have a pattern, a bow or something which adds a detail but then again it depends on which other garment you wear it with. Keep it plain with a feminine skirt and with a big silk bow to some Oxford trousers, and remember it is always a little bit of summer which you can wear all year round.
