Resort and Spring 2017 clothes (yes spring) are in stores now and while it’s too cold to wear any of this in New York, there is somewhere warm where you can put on a fun blouse (selfishly I’m thinking ahead). Since so many of us practically live in jeans, designers are putting their effort into other clothing items that still hold our allure. Hence, the new crop of gorgeous blouses. Whether it’s a beautiful color, fun stripe, or a sleeve’s poetic silhouette that grabs you, you should be able to find a blouse to fall in love with. I am particularly fond of the Apiece Apart blush blouse top (because I never wear pink) and the one-shoulder yellow and white gingham Rosie Assoulin—to wear during the day with cropped jeans and flip flops.
