1 Piece, 3 Ways: The Block-stripe Blouse

We sure are a lucky bunch here at Vince Camuto HQ. 

 

Before they’re available in stores, before they run in magazine spreads—even before they’re photographed for our seasonal campaign—racks upon racks of shiny new blouses, dresses, handbags and shoes teasingly hang on display in our office, arm’s length from our desks. 

 

So it should be no surprise to hear our spring shopping list is prepped months in advance. One piece we’re particularly eager to get out of our dreams and into our closet is the Vince Camuto Zen Multi-Stripe Blouse.

 

Plus, we already know how we’ll wear it—and where! Check out three looks starring the must-have blouse of the season, modeled by our gorgeous PR coordinator, Chelsey.

 

Springtime Wedding
You might think stripes are strictly for work hours, but the Zen Blouse’s sweet color palette and romantic airiness makes it totally wedding-friendly. To keep the outfit from looking too precious or too corporate, try mixing stripes with an abstract floral—one of our all-time favorite mixed-prints combinations. If you work with similar tones to that of the blouse (black, white and blush), the prints won’t overwhelm each other. 

Low-Key Brunch

Come Sunday, all you want are scrambled eggs, a Bloody Mary and total comfort. Tap into the sporty-chic trend and layer the striped piece under a cozy crewneck sweater to show off the collar and cuffs. Play up the sport-luxe vibe with slip-on sneakers and a chic leather backpack. 

 

Dinner-and-a-Movie Date

Channel your inner Parisienne and throw together masculine and feminine separates into one surprisingly sexy ensemble. Slip on your slouchy boyfriend jeans and menswear-inspired trench along with your new favorite blouse and strappy stiletto sandals. And of course, no garçonne would leave the house without oversized sunglasses—even if the movie starts at 9pm.
