Finding the perfect combination of effortless, mature style and flattering trendiness in your blouse styles can be a challenge. But don’t fret - there are so many classic tops for women of all ages! Just remember to look at the designs and details of each shirt.
It’s also important to take into consideration your personal style and the occasions you are dressing for when you browse blouses. Workplace styles that meet your office dress code vary significantly from date-night options. Whether you’re looking to exude a more polished and sophisticated essence or give off the utmost air of professionalism, we have plenty of ideas for classic tops for women that will fit your closet and budget.
The Classic Tee with a Twist
Classic t-shirts, whether worn for everyday or just at the gym, are a must-have for every woman’s wardrobe! We love that designers have been updating these styles to feel fresher and look more flattering on a range of body types. For a stylish update to more unisex styles, look for tees that have more feminine details like cap sleeves or flattering necklines. Currently, we’re loving super soft tees with subtle hi-low hemlines. This detail is flattering and makes your casual look appear a bit more dressy and fashionable.
These modern takes on classic tops can make you appear more sophisticated. Even when paired with a simple pair of denim jeans or some leggings, a well-fitting tee is one of those tops for mature women that offers so much versatility and ease of wear. You can also dress up your favorite contemporary tee by adding a statement necklace or a fun blazer over a classic white shirt. Modern tees with eye-catching designs and fun colors are also a great way to inject some more personality into your everyday wardrobe. We always keep a black and white go-to tee handy for occasions where we are dressing in a rush and heading out the door!
An Effortless Ruffled Top
Finding a lovely top that drapes perfectly without looking too young requires a style that is subtle in design. Give your classic ¾ sleeve or long sleeve options a delicate upgrade with sweet ruffled hemlines or sleeves. These ruffles make your classic top feel a little more fun, feminine, and dressy, without being too ostentatious.
Opt for a conservative neckline and looser fit for a no-fuss look that feels effortless and looks stunning. This option is perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans and heading to a lunch date or going to a family picnic!
A Printed Tunic
Embrace one of the most comfortable and versatile fashion trends when you choose a tunic to be part of your regular closet rotation. These trendy pieces take the idea of basic, classic tops and make them feel a bit more flirty and fun, thanks to their longer length and flattering, feminine fit. A printed tunic is among our must-have tops for mature women because the perfect print immediately adds some polish and charm to your outfit.
We love a detailed paisley print paired with some classic leggings and tall boots for the fall or a sleeveless tunic with peephole detail in the springtime. This is one trend that allows you to play with different color combinations and patterns freely to find pieces that truly speak to your individual personality. A more conservative print can also work for your workplace style if your dress code is more laid back. Keep things simple, but still comfortable and chic, with your styling.
A Breezy Eyelet Blouse
One of our favorite ways to experience the latest fashion trends is to take classic tops and find new materials that make our go-to silhouettes feel fresh and exciting. Eyelet detailing, for example, looks so lightweight and breezy but still manages to be structured, rather than frumpy.
An eyelet-infused piece looks perfect for a family beach vacation or dining al fresco. In fact, these can go from totally casual with some shorts to dressed up enough for a night out when you add some dangly earrings and a statement necklace. Add some cute wedges and you’re all set for the perfect summer or spring soiree!
A Cozy Cowl Neck Sweater
Embody the epitome of cozy chic with an adorable cowl neck sweater. These classic tops have such an effortless look to them that we can’t get enough of. We especially enjoy styles that are a little more loose fitting in a longer length for a comfortable and flattering fit that looks perfect in the fall and wintertime. A cowl neck sweater looks its most mature in a neutral tone like oatmeal or grey — perfect for the cooler months.
And while a traditional cowl neck looks picture perfect on its own, you can also opt for designs with more unique details, like ribbed sleeves or buttons. These look amazing for a family trip to the pumpkin patch or for sipping on hot chocolate by the fire after a long day of skiing. No matter how or where you choose to wear a gorgeous cowl neck design, we know you’ll love how stylish you look and feel! Find your new favorites at Jenny Boston Boutique today!
