Perfect for business or casual wear. Unbutton it for playful wear. Another Garde’s button up blouse is both versatile and contemporary. This crisp button up blouse is a luxurious combination of chiffon and 100% cotton poplin. The blouse also features a mandarin collar, high open side seams and an asymmetrical hem where the back is slightly longer than the front to give you some elegant edge.
Its tuxedo inspired style and perfect fit around the shoulders will boost your femininity, sensuality and no-nonsense spirit.
This button up is the first style from our first collection, which we will unveil layer by layer throughout the year. We are inspired by strong and feminine women. Our first homage is to actress Charlotte Rampling, called ‘La Légende’ by the French. Mysterious, elusive and graceful in her 30s, 40s, 50s and now 60s–she is the quintessential free woman.

Fit & Construction
Giannina is wearing a size Small.
Giannina is 5’9” (175 cm), has a 32" (81 cm) bust, a 24" (61 cm) waist and 34" (86 cm) hips. She wears a Small size in tops, a Small size or US4 for dresses and bottoms and a Size 27 for denim pants.
The chiffon is slightly transparent, therefore the sides of your bra will show- adding to the playfulness and femininity of this blouse. Depending on the women and the bra cup, some opt to not wear a bra with the Lou Button Up or wear a nude colored bra. You could also comfortably wear a tank top underneath.
How is the overall fit of the blouse?
The Lou Button Up features a loose fit around the hips. The sheer sleeves look stunning on all body types. However, if you have a narrow shoulder frame we would recommend a size down, and a size up for broad shoulders. The mandarin collar was adjusted for a very comfortable wear; if you feel you have a stronger neck you should select the next size up.
