The higher the better when it comes to blouse necklines this season, or so said the F/W 19 runways! From Celine to Chloe, practically every major designer had us yearning for ladylike blouses that sit high up on the neck and exude a sophisticated (not to mention affluent-looking) aesthetic. Whether you go for old-timey ruffled collars, tie-neck blouses, or pussy-bow detailing, fashion girls everywhere are embracing high-neck blouses that play into the bourgeois trend, and they're pairing them with everything from high-waisted jeans, pleated midi skirts, and wide-leg trousers. Moreover, the blouse style is perfect for work (exuding a prim and professional vibe) but won't look out of place at happy hour either. Scroll below for inspiration on how to wear the trending blouse style and shop our favorite picks.
