Fall Fashion Trend 2012: The Blouse

Reese Witherspoon pink blouse flare jeans burgundy pumps celebrity style
The blouse is always a wardrobe staple, especially for work, but this season it feels a little bit different. It's loose-fitting, sometimes sheer, in new colors and a modern cut. And how you wear it matters to keep things looking fresh: Reese Witherspoon paired her feminine pink bow blouse with casual flare jeans, burgundy pumps and a matching crossbody bag.

Here are some of my favorite blouses under $100 to get the look right now:

I mostly see blouses tucked into pants/jeans. What do you think of wearing them untucked? Some blouses are too short to stay tucked in, particularly if your jeans are low-rise. Could you post some style tips or pictures with blouses untucked? I feel like it can look sloppy if done wrong!

Love this trend! It's so hard to find well fitting blouses though that aren't super sheer or look to "business". Perhaps you can post a tutorial on how to pick the right fit and do that effortless half tuck properly?
