Bling Around the Collar: Work a Bejeweled Blouse

We’ve always believed that if you’re going to go out, you should go all out—especially during the holidays. So, it makes sense that we’ve taken to this new,  bejeweled blouse by Metaphor. It has a feminine keyhole cutout; elegant, billowy sleeves and ultra-rich color (not to mention its unexpected collar!), so it’s decidedly-statement, versus basic—and perfect, considering our current, here-and-everywhere schedule: We can skip a major step (accessorizing, that is!) of our morning routine and get out the door in a hurry. What’s more, it works with bottoms galore—which, all in all, begs a new notion: Why wear an everyday blouse, when you can wear one big on bling?
