Our philosophy of summer style is that warm weather calls for three things: effortless dressing, pieces that keep you cool, and showing a little skin. Check. Check. Check. The trending sleeveless blouse fulfills each tenet perfectly, and that’s why we’re featuring it today. Whether you opt for a playful printed blouse over flares, like Hilary Duff, or tuck your tidy button-up into a pencil skirt, the sleeveless blouse is a versatile building block for any summer wardrobe. Go retro glam by knotting one over a pair of hot pants and espadrilles or go girl on the go with a bright button-up over shorts and pumps.
