1980’S DOES THE MIDI BLOUSE – A REAL VINTAGE BLAST FROM THE PAST

The first midi blouse appeared around 1910, according to fashion archives, and was styled after sailors’ uniforms. Over the years the style stayed with us but the design was modified. This version looks reminiscent of the 1940’s or 1950’s but was made in the 1980’s by Esprit. The classic blue and white nautical colors are iconic and always seen in Spring. I also love polka dots – another favorite vintage print.

I like this particular style and have a pair of white pants, styled after those that sailors wore, with wide legs and buttons at the hips. So, perfect! Maybe I’ll add some modest shoulder pads . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
