There is nothing more classically chic and timeless than a crisp button front blouse. This shirt style transcends time. But still, designers consistently find new ways to update it, adding in refreshing details such as sheer panels, contrasting collars, and ombré color ways.

But, perhaps the most of-the-moment approach isn’t about color or texture, but rather its how you wear it. Cue Altuzarra‘s plunge-filled Spring 2014 collection (pictured, above). The designer sent barely-button-up blouses down the runway, proving that an update can be found in the styling, too.

Because this shirt style is simple and sophisticated, think of it as a blank canvas. It can be worn with anything, from boyfriend jeans and slip dresses to tapered trousers and skirts of any length. No matter which way to choose to wear it, your look will be immediately polished and complete.
