This week’s featured product is The Yoked Blouse. This is one of my all time favorite blouses, and I literally wear it all the time. I like it best paired with long skirts and corsets, but The Yoked Blouse can be worn many ways. Today, I’ll show you two ways to style up the versatile blouse in the first part of our Yoked Blouse Looks.
The Yoked Blouse likes all kinds of skirts. For the first look, I paired it with a knee-length pleated skirt that strongly reminds me of the Eighties. With that in mind, I continued by adding Fishnet Gloves and my bowler hat to the style. I was having a super-bad hair-day, so I left it loose for the first look. It’s getting really long, and I dare not cross it by trying on multiple ‘dos!
This look turned out really nice. It feels both comfortable, and ME. The pleated skirt, a flea market find from long ago, is a part of my everyday wardrobe, and works beautifully with all kinds of tops. It has a fitted waist which I decorated with a piece of lace, and that makes it a perfect companion for blouses. The waist keeps blouse tails securely hidden, and adds comfort to any outfit.
The Yoked Blouse has long but wide sleeves. That makes it not-so-warm during the winter. Adding a pair of fingerless gloves helps keep wrists warm, and also add a cute detail to this look.

As many may suspect, creative professionals often work from home, in their jammies. I am no exception to that rule. Working from home allows me to ignore dress codes, and though I don’t stay in jammies all day, I do wear my comfiest jersey dresses. If I did work in an office, though, The Yoked Blouse would most likely be my go-to garment. It’s cute, it’s comfortable, and it pairs up beautifully with pencil skirts. For the second look, I wore The Yoked Blouse with an elastic pencil skirt and lace-up stilettos.
I love the way this outfit looks, but while taking photos, I noted that I thoroughly dislike the skirt. It has the wrong shape for my body, which makes it ride and twist and just feel horrible. I threw it into the “recyclables”-pile, and will turn it into something else. In my world, no ill-fitting garment goes to the bin!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the first part of our Yoked Blouse Looks. We’ll continue with the theme on Friday!
