Want to know the secret to an understated spring uniform that will make you look comfortable, stylish and very French in that je ne sais quoi kind of way? Well, it’s all in a silk button down blouse and a pair of your old jeans according to the amazing Ines de la Fressange who once said that trying too hard is very uncool - so stick to classics. I just realized that I have been reaching for that simple pairing on several occasions lately because of its easy vibe. Also, supposedly, silk blouses are super forgiving because of their flowy texture and incredibly versatile, so you are free to jazz them up as you fancy with lipstick, rosy cheeks, messy hair or even red flats and a trench. Thoughts? Do you wear silk blouses? xo
