Every woman should have a chiffon blouse in her wardrobe. A true fashion multitasker, it will take you from work to weekend with ease. At navabi, we have an expert edit of plus size chiffon blouses, from essential black styles to vibrantly printed numbers, it’s just about finding the right design and fit for you.
Styles to choose from
Depending on your preference there are different styles of chiffon blouse to choose from. You could either opt to go classic, so a blouse with a small round collar and button down front, preppy, think a Peter Pan collar or all out feminine, see the pussybow blouse. And that’s naming just a few, we stock a large selection of designs that work for a range of occasions.
For a less restrictive and more elegant alternative to your classic Oxford shirt look to the chiffon blouse. Beautifully lightweight and soft to the touch, it’s a fabulous choice for wearing to the office. Chiffon is a thin, diaphanous fabric, which makes it ideal for tucking into both tailored trousers, skirts and culottes. When it comes to colour and print, just remember the bolder your blouse choice, the more neutral your bottoms should be to avoid outfit overkill. Colour combinations we love for the office include bright red and camel, navy and black and pink and grey.
Try one for evening
If dresses aren’t really your thing, why not try a chiffon blouse with a pair of sleek, tailored trousers or high waisted jeans after dark. A chiffon blouse you can wear slightly unbuttoned to showcase your décolleté is an effortless way of lending your look a little allure. Black styles are great because they go with everything and can be dressed up with bold accessories, like a statement pair of earrings, but don’t shy away from colour. A postbox red blouse with gold jewellery feels just as sensual. If you fancy a little sparkle, seek out chiffon blouses with embellished necklines or cuffs for added glamour.
Make a statement in a printed chiffon blouse. From beautiful, intricate florals to exotic animal and playful polka dots, a patterned design is an easy way to amp up your look. Also if you’re bottom heavy and want to detract attention away from this area, wearing prints on your top half is a clever way to draw the eye up.
A summer favourite
In the warmer months we have to deal with everything from sticky commutes to unpredictable weather, so a chiffon blouse is a real wardrobe saviour. Particularly in the office when you need to stay cool, but still look professional. The whisper light fabric stops you from overheating and feels lovely and breezy on, which is a blessing when you’re stuck without any air con. They also make a superb layering piece for those days where the sun is shining one minute and it starts pouring the next. Simply keep a button down front style in your bag (they take up virtually no space) and then slip it on over your cami/sun frock/sleeveless jumpsuit (delete as applicable) when the heavens open.
