Truth: I’ve never met a scarf print blouse I didn’t like. So the fact that this trend took off this year wasn’t really a stretch for me to get behind. But here’s where I’m going to tell you why you should be a fan, too. First: they class up almost any look. From pairing with jeans and heels to a sleek black pencil skirt, this blouse instantly makes an outfit look that much more expensive. Second: they mesh well with a lot of personal styles. Whether you’re preppy or funky, minimalist or maximalist, it’s really all about how you accessorize. I wore this look to an event just before the holidays, so I decided to go glam with lots of gold accents. But take away the fur vest and switch the metallic boots for black pumps and you’ve got a classy look for going out with friends or a even a day at the office.
The blouse I’m wearing above is an vintage Escada find (and honestly this is a great piece to look for in thrift and vintage stores), but there are loads of inexpensive options online, as well. I love this Topshop version, this Mango one, and this boohoo option. Oh, and this Etsy shop has loads of the real deal if you want a vintage gem of your own! Happy hunting!

You look so cool just letting you know
great photo spot! super cool outfit! loving those jeans!
I love this blouse!! I should try to find a vintage one!!
I just recently donated a similar blouse after holding on to it for so many years without wear. I suppose that is always when a trend comes back again, and you look fabulous here! Love the vintage lion belt! I have one as well, but it’s too small to wear with jeans.

Such a beautiful blouse! I love the vibrance and silky fabric. You styled it beautifully!
Loving this trend as well! This looks great on you. XO, Ellese
I am so on board with this trend. I already began sporting my very old ones, which I never let go of. This Escada find is a true beauty.
These photos are gorgeous! Seriously love this look on you!
