There's one, singularly and without exception, item that every woman's wardrobe must have that's truly ageless, timeless and versatile. It is the little white blouse. It's a style that looks well on young and old alike. It's one of the first serious pieces we purchase in our youth as we embark on our careers, and it keeps evolving throughout our lifetime. The little white blouse may sound simple by description - but by description only. It perhaps the most versatile, flexible and diverse of all the items in our wardrobes, with the exception of the little black sweater. The blouse, however, takes on many shapes and styles and forms from fitted and figure hugging to loose and forgiving thus also making it a favorite for many body types.

This simple staple is perhaps the most important item in your closet. Dress it up, dress it down, this item transitions from day to night seamlessly, from the office to a dinner party, from the casual comfort of denim to the elegant sophistication of a body-skimming black pencil skirt. Whether tailored, loosely fitting, collared or ruffled... worn with sleeves rolled up or down, with jewels or not... whether you've pulled it from your husband's closet or the boutique down the street, there is nothing quite as versatile as The Little White blouse. Casual, fun, flirty, sophisticated, elegant, youthful...
