This trend is going to be the next frilly blouse

By:

Handkerchief blouses are going to be everywhere.

We can officially say that we’ve hit peak blouse. The reworked shirting trend that first emerged on the runways of Monse, Jacquemus, Off-White and Marques’Almeida has since trickled down to fast fashion retailers. You can buy a ruffled blouse in every imaginable colour, pattern and style—Victorian? Edwardian? Asymmetrical avant-garde? This season, an interesting offshoot has emerged. We’re calling it the handkerchief blouse. Less ruffle-y than its predecessor, this new breed of tops features squared-off flounces that drape over the neckline and shoulders.

The most Instagram-famous of the bunch is from Jacquemus’ pastoral-inspired spring 2017 collection.

Chloe’s take on the silhouette skews more minimal, but still features the pointed flounces that we’re calling the next ruffle.

Though this style hasn’t hit Zara—yet—you can still shop it on the high-end. This is not a trend to sleep on. Trust us, it will be everywhere.
