Blouson are not very fitted by style, hence there is an ease to the wear, unless you opt for the stylised version like a peplum blouson.
A shirt is a tailored top, with button opening at the front from collor to hem. Since it is tailored than a blouson, it has restriction to wear for women with heavy bust / midriff variation. Shirts were traditionally part of men’s wardrobe, they started seeping in women’s wardobe in 1950’s .

 


Colour Contrast for Trouser & Tops

Colour Contrast for Trouser & Tops

The above shirts and pants are same size, what I have done is changed the colour combination.

Lets look at the trousers, the black trousers will visually give a slimming effect because lighter colours expand and darker colours contrast. So if you are heavy from lower body like Triangular body shape / Round body shape / Large Rectangular body shape / Large Hourglass body shape shape

Same rule applies to the shirts. If you have a fuller bust or midriff variation opt for dark colour shirts (or blousons preffered)

A darker top / bottom will always reduce the size of that part of your body, its colour perception or as I like to call it Deceptive styling 🙂
