Every so often dresses over trousers stages a fashion comeback. But, TBH we’re rarely in the mood to deal with all that excess fabric and complicated layering, which is why this new blossoming trend called the ‘blouser’ (or so we’re coining it) is much more our bag.

Essentially, it’s when a top is too long to be considered just a shirt or a tee and demands to be worn with a pair of slacks. Though there is one way of wearing this look wrong (i.e. with a skirt), there is no singular way to do this right. Take an oversized silk shirt and add tapered jeans, or dress it up with a pair of tuxedo pants. Think of it as the logical step on from the ‘drouser’ (dress over trouser) trend that stalked the catwalks at Elie Saab and Valentino last spring. Where that felt like a red carpet only trend, this rendition is much more suited to real life.

For those not au fait with frocks it’s the perfect alternative to an iddy biddy party dress. Plus, with winter closing in this trend has the added benefit of keeping your arms warm, which is something that shouldn't be dismissed. There’s a lot of scope and versatility, so get on board with this trend now…
