Tap into the season’s romantic mood with a beautiful blouse.

Weekend dressing needn't be over-thought, and a blouse and a pair of jeans is a failsafe way to look put together without much effort. It's also the perfect combination for those wanting something to wear other than athleisure on the weekend. This season's full-sleeved blouses nod to fashion's embrace of the dressed-up 80s and, when teamed with your favourite pair of jeans, do away with feeling too uptight. For the ultimate low-maintenance approach, take your styling cues from pie-crust collar blouse-lover Alexa Chung and team one with contrasting denim and a pair of loafers or ballet flats.
