Shirts and Blouses
Sometimes when you are out shopping it can be an intimidating and/or frustrating experience when you march around from one shop to another in search of an outlet that is selling the shirt or blouse you want at the price you are willing to pay. If you were planning to make purchases for a holiday wardrobe or starting a new job you might want different styles of shirts. Supermarkets might only carry leisure ranges and sports shirts. A sports shop would be an unlikely outlet to stock a dress shirt. A local men’s outfitters might be too stuffy and formal or it might be too young and trendy. Besides, even if your local shopping centre had all of these options available for you they could be quite a distance apart and the to-ing and fro-ing between them could involve quite a trek backwards and forwards if you realise that the first shop had the best deal/style/selection for you. Save yourself the heartache and take a look through our site of leisure shirts and blouses where you will find short sleeve, long sleeve, heavy or light weight shirts in casual denim or dressier linen styles to meet your wardrobe requirements and satisfy your sartorial needs.
Blouses are very clever little clothing items. They offer the same covering as a shirt but have more detail to add interest and make them appealing. Blouses with darts and tailoring to give a flattering fitted look can look casual when teamed with a pair of jeans or a denim skirt and can be dressed up with only minimal attention to accessories that would just ‘lift’ the blouse and thus your overall appearance. Blouses can have plenty of variation in their neckline styles. Stand up collars, rounded collars, cowl necks, ruffle trims cascading a plunge neckline – all sorts of things are possible with a blouse. Sleeve lengths can be short, long or three-quarter, cuffs might have plain hemlines, deep wrist panels or fold back styles and hemlines can be straight or rounded to give options for wearing them tucked into waistbands or left outside the garment as you please. Fabrics can have a crisp cotton feel or a soft silkiness and their drape can be gentle and flowing or structured and controlled. Piping and ribbing can suggest texture and different shoulder styles can offer variations on a theme with yoke, raglan sleeves or in-set sleeves helping to define a look.
Once that perfect shirt or blouse has been selected don't forget that here at JKL Clothing we offer a full in house embroidery service so your chosen garment can be professionally embroidered with company logo, message or image to give it that unique and bespoke appearance.
