Let’s talk about the perfect white blouse for fall!
Searching for the perfect white blouse for fall? Nothing is more classic and versatile than a white button-down shirt, which shot to fame for women when Hollywood legends such as Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly, Katharine Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe embraced them in the mid-20th century.
Chic women have continued to follow their timeless lead, taking full advantage of how flattering white is to nearly every skin tone and how beautifully it mixes with everything. These attributes make the white shirt the perfect neutral basic to wear with whatever you like, darling.
How To Care For The Perfect White Blouse
What’s more, caring for white clothes is far simpler than most people imagine, and with a few simple tips, your white blouses can retain their dramatic brightness. A bit like a fabric diva, white wants to be set apart – and not just from colorful clothes that can transfer and dye or make them dingy. Separate white blouses like this: acetate and acrylic wash together; linen and cotton wash together; wool washes alone; all delicate whites should be washed by hand. And yes, darling, you CAN bleach your whites, which makes them rather low-maintenance, actually, to care for.
Remember, though, bleach should be used judiciously as it does weaken the fabric. Fabrics that DO NOT take to bleaching (read your care tags) are silk, acetate, spandex, rubber, and elastic. Yellowed whites should be washed, and then rinsed in a vinegar and water solution to bring them back to bright.

Accessorize Your Perfect White Blouse
Lastly, I want to mention one more thing. Don’t forget, the great thing about white blouses is that you can accessorize them. And, as you know, I do love a great accessory. Accessories can completely change the look and feel of a blouse. It can dress it down, it can dress it up, change it for day or night.
I love to wear a nice red flower brooch, or even tie a scarf around my neck. A great handbag can also dress up a simple white blouse. Don’t forget a fabulous pair of earrings and some bangles to complete the look. Oh, and a nice pair of shoes! Have fun with it, and always be true to your personal style.
