Originally designed for male French farmworkers and laborers in the 1800’s, the blouse evolutionized into a womenswear piece around the 1870’s, after people started recognizing the French word ‘blouse’ as something that’s used by younger ladies. Then, once the 1890’s came around, many women began wearing blouses.
Back then, blouses were usually made of lightweight materials like silk or cotton, but once the 1990’s rolled around, the use of synthetic fabrics became the norm.
Now, blouses can be produced from any material and a variety of designs, which we see today. Many of what we see in modern day fashion weeks.
Grrly Grrls has several blouse styles based on the latest fashion trends to choose from, so grab a couple today to give your wardrobe a well deserved update!
Luxury brands like Off-White and Tom Ford have proven in the latest fashion weeks that the material can be reinvented and redesigned. If you’re looking for a unique velvet top, grab our Velvet One Shoulder Sweatshirt Pants Set. It’s a two piece set that’s perfect for a lounge day at home.
Although there have been some Y2K elements in the recent fashion weeks like animal print and chain mail, the entire Y2K aesthetic has been very popular among the younger crowd. The infamous Paris Hilton chain mail style has definitely come back. Our Sequined Open Back Halter Top is a great alternative to this throwback style. Another Y2K trend is the small, lacey baby tanks, like our Cow Print V-Neck Tank Top.
Latex pieces are a great way to add a touch of sex appeal to any outfit. Our Patent Leather Bodycon Tank Top can be paired with a mini skirt and a pair of heels for a bold clubbing outfit.
Prarai Gurung and Christopher Kane were just a couple designers who debuted pieces with cutouts for the Fall and Winter 2020-2021 fashion weeks. Our Crew Neck Hollow Out Blouse is a unique way to sport this cute trend. If you’re looking for something a little more fun, our Solid Bow Tie Pullover Sweater is a great option.
Big, puffy sleeves are in right now, and many influencers like Danielle Bernstein have been seen wearing these tops. For a more casual vibe, we have our Cold Shoulder Long Sleeve Blouse, which can be worn in the office, or for happy hour after work. Another low key option is our Puff Sleeve Blouse. The pin stripe pattern adds a chic, business casual look. For a more daring option, our Retro Long Puff Sleeve Blouse is a cute and trendy top that pairs perfectly with some mom jeans.
Fuzzy and Furry
Fuzzy accents were one of the many trends that debuted at the Fall and Winter 2020-2021 fashion weeks. Fuzzy tops are not only cute, but offer warmth against the rough Winter weather. Our Plush Turtleneck Crop Sweater is a trendy top to wear under your favorite winter jacket to help keep you warm. If you’re looking for something that’s a better fit for warmer weather, our Off Shoulder Short Top is a great Summer top. Look familiar? Ariana Grande wore a similar top back in 2018 on the set of her ‘Thank U Next’ music video.
