Layering Your White Blouse Under a Sleeveless Shirt

The white blouse for older Women.

The White Blouse for Any Ages: Under a Sleeveless Shirt

Quote of the day: “The past is a reference point, not a residence.” Bill Heffernan

Most of the quotes I find for my posts, are ones that I hope can be applied to both our lives and our closets! And I think this one fits the bill nicely! Even if the clothes you tend to wear are a certain style, I’m all for trying out something new occasionally!

But I have to ask, am I the only woman who yearns to wear her spring and summer clothing before the weather is warm enough? Personally I love having different weather seasons in order to wear my sweaters and boots. However, there always comes the time when I’m yearning for the next season to come about!

So in fitting with the theme of trying to give our white blouse more love, I came upon this thought! How about wearing it under a sleeveless shirt? Maybe it’s a shirt you usually only wear in the warm months? Or maybe it’s a layering piece that usually gets paired under another item? Either way, you could get more versatility from the sleeveless shirt if you layer your white blouse under it, right?

And not only do you get to see all 3 of us figuring out how to layer this item under a sleeveless shirt, you can also see another blogger join in the fun. Amy’s joining us for this entire week, so make sure to click over to her site to see all the specifics about her outfits!!

If you missed the first post in this series, I tried having us all wear our white blouse under a t-shirt, here.  I’d love to hear how you wear your white blouse below in the comments!

Amy’s Outfit:  You would think that we planned for Amy to wear almost the same color sleeveless shirt that Nancy did. But we didn’t. We call that “great minds thinking alike” or twinsies!! And don’t you love that she wore her converse sneakers with this?

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I’m not at a loss for sleeveless shirts in my closet. Yet, when I happened to be at Banana Republic the other day armed with some rewards, I couldn’t help but think how perfect this sleeveless shirt would look for this post. In real life, the shirt’s stripes are a light lilac, although they almost look blue on my computer screen.

You can see how the ruffles really add so much to this shirt. And if I just wore it under a sweater or jacket, you couldn’t see all of the fun details! My earrings are ones that you’ve seen a lot. They are actually 4 earrings in one since the gold piece comes off and there is also a turquoise tassel piece (seen here).

These decorated jeans were the subject of a DIY post (here) that were made for me by my reader/blogette, Jude! I ended up shortening them by creating a raw hem since that’s so in style right now! My bracelet opens to show a watch underneath. It doesn’t keep time anymore, but I think the facing is so pretty, so I keep it as decoration only!

I had all three of us handle the outside shirt differently. I tucked mine into my jeans. The outfit may look a little rumpled since this was the end of the day, but that’s real life, right?

Jeans: (similar here plain tan or here as blue jeans with studs up the side for $$$)~~Sleeveleess Blouse: Banana Republic (here)~~White Blouse: Brooks Brothers (similar here)~Shoes: Calvin Klein (similar here with a wood heel and here perforated)~~Belt: (similar here)~~Earrings: (here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: For Nancy’s sleeveless shirt, I chose a knit tank that she bought in an H&M when she was in Amsterdam! Since the top portion of this tank is open, she always wears some kind of shirt beneath it.

We struggled with how to style the pink shirt because it’s awfully long when we leave it untucked. And when we tried to tuck it in, it looked wonky! So it was Nancy’s idea to tie it up on the sides! I used a rubber band to hold the extra material, and then we pinned a brooch over the area to camouflage the rubber band.

Because the pink in this outfit is so bright, and the pants are printed, we chose some smaller earrings. These hoops are one of Nancy’s favorite pairs because they are simple enough for any outfit, yet add a little more interest than plain hoop earrings.

I really like how the white shirt picks up the white from the print in Nancy’s pants! And thanks for Nancy for being such a good sport on this day—the wind was having a hey day with photo shoot!!

Pants: Liz Claiborne (similar here with color and here as palazzo pants)~~Blouse: Chicos (similar here)~~Sleeveless Top: H&M (similar here in a light pink or here brighter but no cut outs)~~Shoes: Chinese Laundry (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Pin: (similar here only one I could find but lots of $$$)

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: I didn’t realize that both mom and Nancy got styled with pink shirts for this post. But at least they are somewhat different. I left mom’s shirt hang out and she wore a skirt!

This grey skirt is the same one that mom wore for our Long Sweater post, here, but now you can see it much better. I thought this particular skirt would add some fabulous texture to the outfit, since the pink shell is so silky!

The owl pin was a gift from Nancy just recently. It’s actually made from clock parts! Isn’t it so cute? I pinned it through both shirts to help them stay together better. And since there was blue in the pin, we added in more blue with the earrings & bracelet.

I thought these floral shoes brought the entire outfit together perfectly. They brought in the colors from the top & accessories and added some print to the overall outfit.

  • Bernadette Laganella

    I agree that one of the advantages of living in a four season state is getting to change your wardrobe. I think I would be bored silly living in a one season environment. Wonderful styling suggestions for the shirt.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I say that too, Bernadette. Although I would be lying if I didn’t admit to thinking about moving to a warmer climate on some days—ha ha!!
      Thanks for the love!

  • Hi Jodie. I’ve used your white shirts posts as inspiration for mine published today and referenced yours. Such classic looks and a great idea layering under sleeveless shirts.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a fabulous thing to read today, Anna!!
      Thanks so much!

  • I love layering shirts underneath items, but have never considered layering underneath a sleeveless shirt before. Great idea, Jodi! Your striped/ruffled top is beautiful and looks wonderful with your jeans and fab peep toe booties. 🙂 Each of you look great trying out this idea.

    Thanks so much for linking up with Fabulous Friday!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jennie!!
      I remember thinking this might be a great way to start wearing my spring items before the weather was ready!!

  • Another great idea I need to try. Thanks, ladies!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Elle!

  • The Aloha Mummy

    I really love this! And aren’t you all so great at modelling! I would be lost without my white shirts and teaming them with sleeveless gives outfits a little revamp without breaking the bank!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks!! They really are quite the versatile piece!!

  • I love the look of crisp white shirts on women. All three of you rock this one. I just don’t like wearing them myself because (a) they need ironing and (b) I don’t like the feel of their stiffness and rustling. You know what I mean? They feel a bit too “crunchy” or something. I need to find a nice soft version, that doesn’t need ironing but looks crisp.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I totally understand Leanne! Here’s the one you need: http://bit.ly/2mcvOFR It’s wrinkle free–or so they say!!

  • One Sage Mama

    All the looks were perfect in their own way. Amy had a chill, artsy weekend at the shops vibe. Jodie had the chic edge to her, as if she was a hot music journalist. Nancy gave me brunch by the ocean vibes. The colors work great and I could see her sipping mimosas by the pier. Charlotte’s skirt is everything. She looks ready for some chic event, like a fundraiser or bridal reception. Thanks so much for linking up to #fridayfrivolity and keep slaying, ladies! Xx

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Wow Amethyst!!
      Your words are like poetry! You really know how to tell a story—just with your comment!
      Thanks for chiming in!!

  • I really love that ruffles top. Gorgeous when you layer it with white top. Very nice! Thank you so much for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Su!!
      I’ll be excited to wear the ruffle top alone when it finally warms up too!

  • Kirsten Wick

    Yes I know what you mean, I think all of us yearn to wear some spring clothes now. Your ruffled blouse is so fun, I really adore it and I think you can never go wrong with a white blouse underneath it. I mean how can you ever go wrong with a white blouse as a basic? Have great weekend. Kirsten

    http://www.thelifbissue.com

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s really true, I think! Isn’t that why they call them a classic piece? Or basic item? They just work with everything. (but it’s funny how I don’t think to pull it out very often!!)
      Happy Friday, Kirsten!

  • Penny @ pennyspassion.blogspot

    A good white blouse can add so much to your wardrobe! I’m loving the shoes in this post. Everyone looks great!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Penny!!

  • Savvy Southern Chic

    I’ve always loved the look of sleeveless sweaters and shells over button up shirts. I have a love hate relationship with my white shirt and would argue that it is not the must have item for every closet, but this is a great way to get more use out of it too.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I actually gave up on button up blouses for the longest time, Fonda! I hate the gaping!
      But I know when I was growing up–it was all about the white shirt. And now that I know there are some brands that work better for me (and I have a better bra)—I seem to enjoy them more!!
      But I hear you!!
      🙂

  • This is such a fun way to restyle a sleeveless shirt! You all look so cute!

    I have never thought to wear a sleeveless shirt this way but, why not give it a try? The outfit with the ruffled one is so cute!
    Spring is the right season for layering so…many thanks for sharing something really new!
    Have a nice weekend, Jodie…

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m not sure I would have thought of this either–except for trying to be creative on the blog!!
      Thanks Dan and have a fabulous day!!

  • i love this such an amazing idea! I like the sleeveless pieces for the cooler weather so versatile 🙂 http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2017/03/the-colour-that-is-red-hot.html

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Heather!!
      I’m not one to put the sleeveless pieces away and change out my closet for the seasons—so I figure I might as well wear what I have!!

  • This is a great idea to get more wear from sleeveless pieces in the cooler weather! I do have a couple of sleeveless dresses I wear shirts under for work in winter but I’ve never tried it with sleeveless tops before, I’ll need to remember this when the weather cools 🙂

    Hope you are having a wonderful week!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mica!!
      Really—I’m like you. I think of my sleeveless tops for the warmer months–or always under something. So I love it when I can be more creative!! It’ll only take me 10 times to do something like this on the blog before I’ll remember it in real life! ha ha!!

  • Kathy Marris

    They say a white shirt is a wardrobe staple and your post shows just how versatile one can be. Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂 #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kathy!!
      I’m sure that saying came about for a reason. But it certainly isn’t the favorite in my closet. That’s why I’m glad to do these posts—it reminds me to love my basics!!

  • love this white blouse! perfect for spring.

    LOVED Nancy’s look in this post – black and white with bright pink is a combination that always appeals to me so this was my clear fav (but your boots come in a close second). Clever how you tied Nancy’s top – I’m definitely stealing that idea! As always, your posts remind me to wear more of my jewelry more often.

    I’m probably the only woman on the planet who truly hates most shirts (bothered by the collar), and white ones in particular (spiller). But I’m taking this idea to use with the sweaters and tees I wear instead – if the weather ever warms up enough to take off the top seven layers I need for warmth. – lol.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well, I’m glad I can help with something, Madelyn!! And I’m sure I stole this idea to tie Nancy’s shirt from someone else—because when it comes down to it, are any of our ideas unique??
      I won’t brag and tell you that we had 70 degree weather today and I even wore my sandals!! And it was fabulous!! The reason I’m not bragging about it is we’ll get hit again—usually March & April are our snowiest months!! And then the layers will be back!!

  • I’m definitely ready to wear my spring clothes! I love the idea of layering a white button down under a sleeveless top! Your ruffled stripes are so cute!

  • I love a crisp white shirt especially in spring. Thank you for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime 🎉

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Catie!! They are truly versatile!!

  • So glad to see Amy teaming up for this one! I think you all nailed this one and showed the diversity of looks you can accomplish with this formula. Your top looks designed that way, not like you layered it. I wouldn’t think to pair the shirt under a ruffled cap sleeve, but it works really well!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I had to laugh when we were shopping and I found this ruffle shirt, Liz! Because it’s not like I’m lacking in the shirt department. And I’m sure I could have found another one to use for this post! But I thought it was different than what I normally buy, and I could wear it with the blouse under it. I would have only ever thought to wear a jacket or cardigan over it in the past (and how sad to cover up those neat ruffles??)

  • You gals are all so joyful. Your clothing is lovely and I would never have thought of taking a sleeveless top and putting it over a blouse. Genius! But even better are the beautiful smiles on everyone’s faces. Glowing.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a nice comment, Leslie—and thank you so much!
      I know when we first started taking photos for the blog, it was all business. But that’s no fun, and it’s not like we are paid professionals anyways! So now we try to have fun and joke around and smile tons!!

      Ahhh…the sleeve detail!! I think that’s a great way to modernize this shirt! Because they really go with everything!!

  • You just cannot go wrong when layering a white blouse. All of you look especially lovely in this post, Jodie!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Carrie!!

  • Although this look isn’t for me, I like the idea of it. I love a white blouse, and to cover it over would be a good idea for me because then my teeth don’t look yellowish!! But I think I’d go for an over-top which didn’t hug my curves. Thanks for the inspo!! #teamlovinlife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      When I was practicing as a dentist—I used to recommend the browner lipsticks, because they always make your teeth look whiter!! I still care how my teeth look—but now I love to wear all the colors!
      Thanks for stopping by Johanna!!

  • Haha! Yes I do that too. Always ready to start dressing for the next season before it happens. And your top with the ruffles looks so nice with the white blouse under it! And I LOVE Nancy’s pants – they’re so fun! And the owl pin your mom has adorable and so are her shoes. Love all your outfits! 🙂

      Thanks for the love, Lindsey!! I’ll forward your comment so mom & Nancy can appreciate it also!!

  • I’m the same way – I get to a point where I’m so ready for the next season’s clothes. I’m definitely ready for spring right now. Love the ruffles on your blouse. You all have such beautiful smiles!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lana!!
      That’s why I like being in a place that has all the seasons…I’m not sure if I’d get bored with only summer all the time. Although Rob keeps saying we should move to Phoenix–ha ha!!

  • What a great style idea! Looks so cute! =)

  • I layer my long sleeves under sleeveless dresses usually! It’s a way for me to wear my spring/summer pieces even when it’s cold out!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s so smart, Michelle. I do think the white blouses look so professional under a sleeveless dress!!

  • donnaduck

    Love your sleeveless top, Jodie! Right now I could use some Spring- we got 13″ of snow yesterday!! And I’m watching a snow squall outside my office window as I type… Come on Spring, where are you??!! I knew I’d be spoiled by the 60 degree weather we had in February, ha ha!!

    Love Nancy’s and Charlotte’s outfits as well. White shirts are so versatile, but I only have 2 in my closet. I guess I do tend to think of white with warmer weather. Glad you showed some other ways to wear white!

    Oh and I love the website sketches of the 3 of you!! They are so good!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Good golly Donna!! Well, then you’ll appreciate the scarf posts coming out next week!!
      I have to laugh because we just got home from Phoenix (where it was a balmy 90 degrees) and I was lamenting the 60 degree weather here. Hearing what you are going through will make me shut my mouth and realize how great we have it (at least right now. Because March & April tend to be our snowiest months!!)
      Thanks for the love!!

  • Such great layering! Makes the most out of our closets. I am especially loving your sleeveless top Jodie! It will be so cute on it’s own this spring and looks great how you layered it. Those ruffles are so fun!

      Thanks Amy!
      I am surprised at how much I’m loving the ruffles this year—-I know in my past life, I would have thought them way too girly!!

  • Can’t blame you for picking up that shirt – the stripes and ruffles are so cute! Plus, isn’t the BR Card the best? I feel like every month they are offering bonus points and I constantly have rewards that make shopping so much more fun.

    I think I like the button down layered under the sleeveless items more than the short sleeves, it gives off the romper look which is really cute.
    http://www.iamchiconthecheap.com/

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I probably wouldn’t have bought this shirt while I was working, because I’d think it’d get hidden under a blazer or cardigan all the time—and what fun is that?
      But that BR card is great depending on your perspective. I definitely buy more with it—but even Rob has gotten some great deals because we have the rewards!!
      Thanks Lydia!!

  • Great looks! I especially love the printed pants!

      I know Nancy thinks they are very “loud” and I’m not really sure she wears them except for the blog!! But maybe with enough love from others—she’d consider it!!

  • I just love these layered looks! A white blouse is such a great staple piece for every wardrobe. I am loving your shoes Jodie!

  • Judy Gramith

    Your little striped and ruffled top is really darling. Wouldn’t it be fun with a floral or even polka dot skirt or jean in similar blue tones? I Also like it with the white blouse.
    Nancy’s pink top is so pretty and her bold print pant is complimented nicely by the white blouse.
    Charlotte’s new owl pin is really special. Nancy found the perfect and unique gift!!
    I also love the floral print pumps!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      This would be a great shirt to style some print mixing, Jude!! Now I’ll be spending the next half hour in my closet—ha ha!!
      Thanks for the love!!
      Are you joining in on the next category?? I always love to see what you come up with?? 🙂

  • These are great looks! And pink is very trendy at the moment. I love your stripey top. Nancy’s outfit is great, very summery, and gorgeous shoes. Btw, you and Charlotte always have fab glasses/spectacles.

      Thanks Gail!!

  • Laura

    This is a great way to do lightweight layering and really use more of your closet! It makes sleeveless tops usable as vests! I’ve done this before and added a blazer over top for a more professional look.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I love the idea of adding a blazer over top of this, Laura!!
      It’s always amazing to me how we can get so creative, if we only take the time to see what goes together!! Of course, when we’re working…who has the time??
      Thanks for stopping by!!

  • Bev @ Walking Well With God

    Jodie,
    I love the way you give ideas to repurpose items in our closet. From a past post – I have put a sweater or jacket over a short sleeve dress and made an all season outfit. I like this idea because being fair skinned, white shirts make me look washed out…I need that layer of color. Thanks for helping us stretch our wardrobes!
    Blessings,
    Bev

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I didn’t even think of it that way, Bev—but this does work wonders for adding some color to our face if we need it!!
      Thanks for your words, and Peace!

  • Oh my gosh this is a great way to showcase the white shirt! I have to try this! I love all your outfits so much. Your moms really look so fashionable all the time. I want you to do a post on how you stay so trim and young looking! Peace! Cheryl Tucker

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aww—you’re so nice, Cheryl! But you obviously have the serum of youth—I think you appear way younger than me!!

  • Karen

    I REALLY like these outfits. Your shirt is the most amazing thing! I love it with the white shirt under it, but just think of wearing it by itself in the summer! What a fantastic find!! And your shoes – oh my! The heels add so much interest! I like the detail on Nancy’s shirt, and that was genius to tie it up on the side. That is something well worth remembering with longer tee shirts. Did Nancy get her hair cut? It’s a fun style, very youthful and pretty! Your mom looks like she’s off to the office, so polished! And I love her shoes!! Those would look great with jeans too, to elevate a casual look. Well done with these outfits! I like how Amy styled her sneakers with this. It looks at once dressy and casual!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Karen!!
      This is one of those shirts that it would be a shame to cover up—so I’m glad I was able to layer it before the summer!!
      I think the wind is what is making Nancy’s hair look so great! Maybe we need to do like the “real” models and get a fan for our photo shoot—ha ha!!
      Thanks for the love, Karen!!

    • Amy D. Christensen

      Thanks, Karen! I appreciate the positive feedback. I thought the sneakers went quite well will the red stripe and all. Thanks for the input. – Amy

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    There is nothing like a crisp white blouse! And I think the feminine touches you added with the beautiful soft spring colors and ruffles are just so fun!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Andrea!!

  • Stevie Turner

    I love your pretty blouse with all the ruffles. I seem to be a ruffles and tassels girl…

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I am surprised at how much I like the ruffles now. As a young girl, I thought they were yucky!! But I’m seeing them all over the place now, Stevie—so you should be in your glory!!

  • Mireille

    Very creative! I actually do not own a plain white blouse anymore but if I did I would definitely try these looks! Love how you used a brooch to hide the rubber band on Nancy’s outfit. I think hers is my favorite!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mireille!!
      Now I’ll have to try this same idea with other blouses since a couple of you have said you don’t have a white blouse!

  • I am not looking at any of the blouses at all! I am starting at your trousers! Faantaastic!!🙌🙌🙌🙌

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they so fun, Nancy??
      Thanks!!

    Looking good, Jodie! I love that blouse you are wearing over the top. You are right about letting the ruffles show. It is so cute. I didn’t realize that Nancy’s top had the crochet type detail at the top. Very pretty. And your Mom’s skirt! It definitely adds that textural element. Love these outfits. Thanks again for letting me tag along! – Amy

      I rarely wear a sleeveless top except in the extreme summer months (since I’m always cold) so I’m glad I figured out how to layer under a sleeveless shirt, Amy! Now I can get so much more wear from these pieces!!
      Thanks for having fun with us—I love having more women involved!!
