The humdrum gray blouse with a twist
Usually I gravitate towards bright colors and vivid patterns in my clothing, scarcely ever choosing shades of brown or gray (black being one of the few dark colors allowed in my closet). But this Barbara Bui blouse, with its satin cap sleeves, fanciful loop detail and textured silk fabric, is just the kind of neutral shade I need to complement all the bright clothes I own! The elegance of the blouse is balanced by slightly edgy cut-out loops and a loose, casual silhouette. To bring out the whimsical side of the top, I'd definitely match this with fun, but not overbearing, accessories, like this butterfly headband or bow headband.
