Trendy Blouses and Shirts Fall-Winter 2015-2016
For some time, blouses began to be considered the basic item in the feminine wardrobe, especially if it’s business style. It had acquired such popularity due to the universality and flexibility in combination with other garments. For example, blouses look great with skirts and business style trousers. Quite harmoniously they look with jeans and shorts in casual and grunge style. In addition, blouses can make a great tandem with maxi evening skirts. Exactly this is the reason why this garment is given a special attention by renowned designers. Let’s see what the blouses trends are in Fall-Winter 2015-2016 seasons.
The new cold season has shown many times that fashion ceased to attract attention to the weather. As a confirmation of what was said can be the multitude of blouses made exclusively of summer fabrics – mesh, silk, embroidery, chiffon. This trend is promoted by Saint Laurent, Acne Studios, Emilio Pucci, Marco de Vincenzo, Balmain, Roland Mouret, Vera Wang, Dolce and Gabbana, Rodarte. Moreover, some brands recommend us to combine these blouses with blazers, jackets and overcoats, others are placing transparent inserts in the “hot areas” while the rest, uninhibited, have worn over the naked body of their models.
Bright leather and knitted blouses
Having agreed the undisputed leader, we need to also remember other fabrics, used to sew blouses. For example, Chanel, Lanvin, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta used most often for this purpose lurex, knit and even leather. Fall-Winter 2015-2016 knitted blouses will fit ideally in the severe business style (e.g, Valentino and Oscar de la Renta chose to match them with black office pants and stylish fur midi skirts), while leather and bright blouses will fit better in casual, evening or grunge style.
Cut and design
Blouses which more resembled tunics appeared in new collections by Christian Dior, Nina Ricci. Remarkable is that at the creation of these blouses, brands have used various fabrics – from transparent mesh to dense satin, from classic knit to original fabrics that mimic the glossy skin of reptiles. And brands recommend us to assort such blouses designs with midi skirts and capri pants.
Mugler, Akris, Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera, Carven recommend us wearing sleeveless blouses and shirts, which were mostly in monochromatic colors and allows us to wear them with almost any other article of clothing in our wardrobe, although, most of such models are found in combination with classic pants and long skirts.
In Emilio Pucci , Lanvin, No.21 collections and a few other designers, appeared relaxed fit blouses, carefully covering the body shapes and adding sufficient volume to those areas that require it, and also, masking the imperfections. The last task is best performed by the relaxed fit blouse-shirts with many pink folds from Lanvin.
Alberta Ferretti, DKNY, Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang, Donna Karan, Escada new collections will undoubtedly appeal to office workers because these contain more stringent and stylish blouses-shirts, made mostly in black and white colors. Such models, even if it looks strict and “business”, make women look incredibly attractive and sexy.
Turtleneck blouses have not disappeared from the fashion catwalks, as evidenced by new presentations from Zac Posen, Dries van Noten. Such designs are very practical because of dense fabric, high collar and long sleeves, they protect very well from weather conditions in autumn-winter season.
At the moment, we can firmly say that puffed sleeves are fashionable again as evidenced by new clothing lines from Reem Acra, Louis Vuitton and other brands. These wide sleeves are characterized by a gradual narrowing and cuffs. There are also designs where the sleeves are tight with a strip, elastic or a thick cuff. Such sleeve can have different lengths, which allows us to match both with evening, business outfits as well as with casual outfits.
Other blouse designs
Besides the options already described, in the collections of famous brands were also frequently met asymmetric and wrap blouses, peplum and even bustier blouses. Such models can be seen at Balmain, Emilio Pucci, Carven, Escada.
Ruffle front blouses
Such designs are perfect for middle-aged ladies and even younger girls. In addition, these are incredibly universal – depending on the chosen fabric and color, they can be worn at romantic dates, as well as in a more official environment.

For example, Versace decorated transparent blouses with brand flowers and embroidery, Balmain and Marchesa – fringes, Dolce & Gabbana original applications and inserts, Christian Dior – detachable collars, Roberto Cavalli, Saint Laurent, Chanel – butterflies and ties.
Colors and prints
And finally we would like to mention the abundance of colors that our favorite brands have spoiled us with. In the new cold season, colorful blouses go step by classic black and white items.

We are also pleased by the presence of prints. The most demanded are again vegetable, geometric and animal prints.
