I’m not sure whether it’s the thought of Spring approaching, but I seem to be completely obsessed by collared blouses lately. I’m not talking stiff, starchy shirts, but the loose, flowing, soft variety – I hanker after oversized fits and peter pan collars, anything that will tuck into a pair of trousers or skirt. Print, colour, style – none of it matters as long as there is a collar and a whole lot of room in there.
The Polyvore set above consists mostly of Topshop and Zara blouses, but I think the best one has to be from Paul Smith. Technically, this isn’t a blouse but a shirt, as it’s actually menswear – but I just adore it. The quirky little print (a cricket playing snooker!) and the lovely rounded collar made me fall in love with it a little bit. And let’s not forget that the Husband and I can share it, which means we get value for money as well!
