The Perfect Blouse For Every Occasion
The blouse is an essential piece of women’s clothing that can be dressed up or down for multiple style situations. Whether you’re looking for a silk wrap blouse to wear to a wedding or a classic button-down for the office, there is a blouse that’s right for every occasion!
Blouses have a more feminine appearance than shirts and can incorporate feminine details like ruffles, bows, and embroidered decorations. They also tend to be more tailored than knit tops and suit a wider range of body shapes.
The Basic Blouse
A blouse is a wardrobe essential, and it can elevate any outfit. Made from forgiving fabrics that drape and often have stretch, blouses are less staunch than shirts and offer a variety of silhouettes to flatter most body shapes. Whether it’s an elegant bell-sleeve or a fringed neckline, a basic blouse can easily be dressed up or down for work or play.
The blouse is a blank canvas for details like fun fringe ties and statements such as puff sleeves, a 2021 summer trend. Flared cuffs and plunging necklines are also popular choices to enhance a blouse.
This course teaches you how to use commercial patterns as templates for custom-fit tops that will take your fashion sense to the next level. Learn how to modify bodices and collars for unique styles such as a cowl or tie-neck blouse, add boutique closures including hidden button plackets and keyhole openings, and create a variety of sleeve lengths. This class is also an opportunity to hone your sewing skills and explore new techniques.
The pattern featured in this class (McCall’s 6649) is available from most online retailers, including the designer’s shop. If the pattern is unavailable for your size, this class will teach you how to adjust any commercial shirt or blouse pattern to fit your measurements using the same techniques.
The Swing Blouse
A swing blouse is a great way to add a feminine blouse touch to your look. Featuring a turn back cuff, bias check front pocket and inverted back pleat, it’s super easy to wear for both casual and work days. Pair with slim fitting pants or a pencil skirt for work and top it off with a tailored blazer for a more elevated look. The best part is that it’s perfect for summer!
The smocked square neckline and ruffle sleeves of this design create a modern look. The contrasting navy blue trim around the edges gives it an extra pop of colour and contrasts with the white fabric perfectly.
We love how the v-neck of this blouse is complemented by gold mirror work. The sheer tulle fabric also helps to add a hint of drama to this otherwise simple blouse design. This style of blouse is a great option to go for when pairing with a pattu saree as the gold mirror work will compliment the red lining of the saree.
We have created this style in a beautiful silk Crepe De Chine fabric which is super lightweight and shows colour beautifully. It’s the ideal fabric for a summer blouse as it drapes like silk but is much more breathable than synthetic fabrics. It’s super soft and comfortable against the skin and feels luxurious to wear. It’s also a strong natural fibre so is biodegradable and sustainable.
The Peek-A-Boo Blouse
This lace-up blouse is a showstopper. Featuring a gorgeous lace-up back and a sweet red ribbon that’s just as feminine as it is flirty, this top will stand out in a crowd. Pair it with your favorite jeans and bold earrings for a look that’s sure to turn heads.
A peek-a-boo lace detail adds to the sexy vibe of this white open-shouldered peasant blouse. It also features colored tassel drawstrings around the neckline and bell sleeves. This beautiful blouse can be dressed up for a day at the office by simply pairing it with trousers blouse and a blazer or worn with skinny jeans for a casual evening out.
A boat neck (also known as a Sabrina neckline) is an elegant neckline that sits slightly higher than the collarbone and can accentuate your shoulders and neck. This embroidered peasant blouse from Runcati features a gorgeous embroidery around the boat neckline and a button-down style.
The Wrap-Front Blouse
In a world full of hectic deadlines, family obligations, and other responsibilities, it’s important to feel confident and comfortable all day long. The right blouse is a key part of achieving this, whether you’re dressed for an office meeting or brunch with friends. Luckily, VStar offers a wide range of stretchable and comfy blouses in various sizes, designs, and colours at our exclusive branded outlets and online.
This blouse features a slim fit with notched lapels, long sleeves with cuffs and side twisted knot. Crafted from mulberry silk, this piece is smooth and soft against the skin.
Blouses are usually made from a light fabric like silk or thin cotton fabrics, up until the early 1990s. They can be decorated with frills, embroidery or loops. The style of blouses can be casual or formal, depending on the occasion and personal preference.
A blouse can be worn over a dress or pants as an alternative to a skirt. It can also be layered with a jacket or cardigan in cold weather. In some cultures, blouses are a part of traditional folk costume.

Its convenient design allows you to save time and effort on getting dressed for work or social events. Plus, it provides a premium comfort level with its thoughtfully designed feature elements such as loose-fitting sleeves and scoop necklines.
