After wrapping up our Wardrobe Challenge last Friday, many participants realized they need some new blouses to wear with black pants
So I thought it would be helpful to feature some well priced, size-inclusive options. I’m focusing on black and white blouses because it’s the easiest combination that always looks chic and modern, and chances are, you already have a pair of workhorse black pants hanging in your closet.
5 Blouses to Wear with Black Pants
This round-up has everyone covered, including petite and plus-size options, starting at only $17. So whether you’re heading back to the office after almost a year of working from home, or you want to break up the monotony of endless days in loungewear, there’s something here for you.
Twist Front, $99
The side ruched detailing of the Vince Camuto blouse creates a faux wrap that will bring in your waist. The length makes it ideal to pair with skinny or straight leg bottoms, avoid a wide or boot cut leg with this.
Animal Print, $35
Right now, if you put this 5 Star Reviewed LOFT knit blouse in your cart, it’s marked down to $17. It has a flattering v-neckline and a pretty drape. You can wear it tucked, half-tucked, or out depending on what looks best on your body type.
Velvet Dot Tie-Neck
Velvet Dot Tie-Neck, $33
I adore this velvet bow blouse from Banana Republic. It will add some drama to any basic black bottom, and it’s only $33. A black cami is sewn in, so you don’t have to worry about what to wear underneath.
Piped Trim, $51
Need a professional, statement-making blouse to perk up your boring basics? This black and white piped trim blouse by DKNY (at Macy’s) is lovely. You can wear it tucked into a pencil skirt, half-tucked in pants, or wear it with your pajama bottoms for a Zoom meeting 😉
Plus Size Popover
When I saw this pretty blouse at my local Target from their Ava and Viv line I knew I wanted to feature it. The quality is impressive (for only $25) and will work with any black bottom worn tucked in or out. You can even layer it under a open cardigan or blazer.
