I’ve had so many of you ask for ways to style the same item in your wardrobe differently- so here is my favorite green blouse paired with a skirt. Perviously you saw me wearing this blouse with some adorable patterned shorts in this post.

I always tell my clients to not purchase something unless you can wear it with multiple items in your closet, and I’ll give you the same advice. I love basic blouses for that very reason- they can go with anything. A good wardrobe isn’t choppy- it can flow seamlessly from season to season and from occasion to occasion. If green isn’t your “color” I would advise picking one that is equally bright, but in a hue that suits you. Blue, green, red, pink- whatever, find a blouse that fits perfectly and is simplistic in it’s design. Patterns, too many details, etc, will date a shirt and make it harder to blend into your wardrobe as the seasons change. If you’re not sure what your color is (and it can be more than one) think about what color you have on when people compliment you. No idea? (You’re not alone.) You can take this handy, and quick, quiz here.
When in doubt I ALWAYS gravitate towards a cute black or cream blouse. I steer clear of white because it doesn’t play with other colors as well as cream and it’s hard to find one that’s not somewhat sheer. Below are a few of my picks for bright colors and all are under $40.
I will also continue to style this green blouse throughout the year so you can see the other outfit options!
