During these not-quite-spring, no-longer-winter days, it can be hard to make your wardrobe feel functional and exciting. When it's pelting down one minute and beaming the next, finding a wardrobe solution that wears well throughout the day whilst making you feel great is no mean feat.
With the urge to shake up my clothing rotation with some new-season pieces that can cope with the demands of this awkward time of year, I'm on the hunt for an extra-dramatic, oversized-collar blouse. Providing the coverage required for those in-between days whilst allowing me to indulge in the kind of frills and excess typically reserved for the warmer months, I'm counting on an oversized-collar blouse to revive my over-worn knits and inject some springtime energy into my tired wardrobe.
Across the high street, brands have caught on to the joy-sparking potential of one of these super-cute blouses. From Damson Madder's two-tone blouse to Ganni's white, cotton-poplin style, these playful tops are quietly but quickly saturating the market. Before the weather starts to lift, style an oversized-collar blouse underneath a wool jumper to reawaken your knitwear collection, or wear on its own with classic blue jeans and a trench coat for a spring-ready look that works in February.
