Little black blouse

Sick of wearing the same black button down over and over? We don’t blame you! However, today we’ll show you how to switch things up and style the classic black blouse five unique ways to make it feel totally new again.

Outfit #1: Worn over a summer dress

Little Black Blouse Look #1

There’s no better way to jazz up a summer dress than by pairing it with a tried-and-true black button down blouse, such as this chic MondayMarch tunic top. Class up the look with a belt and high heels, and don’t forget to choose a bold bag and jewelry!

Outfit #2: Worn under a vest

We’re huge suckers for vests during the winter, so why not toss one over your little black blouse to give it a much-needed update? Using the same MondayMarch tunic top, we opted for a bold blue puffer vest paired with flashy and sporty accessories.

Outfit #3: Worn as a crop top

Transform your long black blouse into a cute crop top by undoing the last several buttons and tying it off. Or if you prefer, just pick up a pre-cropped top like this Alice In The Eve Stud Shirt pictured above. We love this look with bold, high-waisted leggings and contrasting-color ballet flats. If you're wary of wearing a crop top, you can get the same look without showing off the skin by layering the cropped top over a cami

Outfit #4: Worn tucked in

For the fashionistas who live in hotter climates like LA, try styling your button down blouse with a pair of cute shorts, and be sure to tuck it in all the way around. Any black blouse will work for this look, but we love the sheer look of the blouse above. Pair it with nude tights or leggings to guarantee warm legs and finish the look with bold platform ankle boots.

Outfit #5: Worn underneath a sweater

Unleash your inner prep this season and layer your black blouse underneath a casual knit sweater. The contrasting collar and shirttail spilling out the bottom is right on trend for winter — trust us. Almost any color palette will do, but peacock hues are especially trendy.
