Notes from a Swedish stylist


Why This Blouse Is a Winner For Summer

Posted in Style

Blouse, Arket. 

This summer, I tried to pack as little as possible, and really tried to be as creative as I could with the few things I brought with me on my trip to France. I used most things a lot, but there was one particular garment that quickly became a favorite. I wouldn’t describe it as a soft cotton blouse, rather the opposite. The stiff organic cotton fabric creates an airy silhouette that is not too romantic, and this is just the kind of blouse I love. I realized quite quickly that I could also wear the blouse back to front, and therefor removed the tag in the neck. Might not sound like a big revelation, but it’s garments like these that I live for – multi-use for the win! 

After analyzing what it is with this garment that makes it so useable, I’ve nailed it down to this: The cut is classic yet flirting with the daring volume and bold silhouette of our time, and the fabric is elegant yet durable. So, these are the criteria I’ll consider when packing for my next vacation.
