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.

We discussed in Triangular Body Shape , that the main aim for this shape while dressing is to take attention away from lower body i.e. hips & thighs.

 

  1. The suggested types of trousers are Straight fit pants, Side zipper pants, self print / micro prints pants.
  2. Avoid very fitted pants for large size triangle, if you are a small to medium body size, you can opt for narrow fits.
  3. A pro tip is that if your trosurs have side pockets than, you can get those pockets stiched so that it wont flap out when you wear the trouser.
  4. With this body shape the chances are high that the waist of trouser will be smaller and hip / thigh will be bigger. In this case buy the bigger size and get your waist altered.
