A good blouse is one of the most convenient pieces to have in your wardrobe. It works equally well with your office trousers or your going-out clothes. However, because these tops are reliable for just about every occasion, keeping the same few in rotation can start to feel stale. Naturally, we’re always looking out for a subtle twist, and this season, square necklines are catching our eye.
Designers like Carolina Herrera, Cushnie et Ochs and Rodarte brought the Renaissance-inspired silhouette to our attention, and it’s catching on quick for spring. There’s a reason why—just like the off-the-shoulder style of seasons’ past, a square neckline draws interest to the décolletage for a flirtatious feel and a flattering fit. However, unlike the shoulder-baring trend, this one is office-appropriate and easy to pair with a jacket. And you don’t need a new outfit to make it work. Simply swap out your usual silk button-up and you’ll feel instantly updated. Try out the look with one of our picks.
