Style Staples: Silk blouses

Nearing the end of sweltering summer heat there is always one question on my mind, how does one stay cool and simultaneously transition into fall?

My favorite staple is definitely silk blouses. They add texture and shape to an outfit, while always looking great tucked into those seriously short summer shorts. Many times I will use a blouse as the foundation of an outfit, and then build the rest of the outfit around the occasion and weather. The result is stylish and breezy looks that embody the spirit of all seasons.
