198799741.jpg

A blouson top is mostly a loose fitted top that may or may not cover the hips. It is not so tailored to a shirt, hence easily adaptable for various body types. Blouson can be various varieties and they were actually a replacement of shirts for women. Blouson is 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 collar to hem. Since it is tailored than a blouson, it has a restriction to wear for women with heavy bust/midriff variation. Shirts were traditionally part of men’s wardrobe, they started seeping into women’s wardrobe in 1950’s.

Both can be as formal or casual depending on the style, cut, color, finish, texture and print/pattern.

Skirts – Casual to Formal

Skirts - Casual to Formal

 

As we read in earlier blog post “Black is not always formal“, this blog post will cover skirts styles from casual to formal.
Fit, Colour, Style, Print /Pattern play an important role while deciding wheteher the clothing piece or the outfit put together is social casual or bsuiness formal. there are varying degrees even to these. Have used a single colour and no print colour right now to concentrate on the fit, style & pattern of skirt to determine where we can wear this.
So to simplyfy our lives, imprtant pointers below:
1. When the length of the skirt is too short anywhere above the knee, it is used only for casual ocassions.
2. An uneven hemline on skirt again is extreme in nature and the attention goes to hemline more than you, this is a fancy peice and again more apt for casual ocassions.
3. Side ruffle, fancy buttoned, long slit styles are again used in a semi casual secenario.
4. A bodycon is a fitted version and can be used for business casual or social casual.
5. Kneelength skirts with simple looking detailing on the skirt can be used for everyday business wear
6. Kneelength straight fit skirt is a very business like piece, can also be used in social formal settings.
