Maybe Zoom has played a part in its rise to stardom, or perhaps it was born out of a need to reinstate some fun into our wardrobes. Whatever the origin story behind the large collared blouse is, there's no denying that it has fast-become a spring style essential.

Collared blouses first cropped up a couple of years ago, when Ganni starting adorning its classic white shirting with them. However, it wasn't until last year that the jolly staple's appeal started to gain momentum. With much of our socialising taking place virtually over the last twelve months, collared blouses provided a chic solution for a shoulders-up outfit.

Since last summer, the trend has only continued to grow in popularity—and now you can find a collared blouse to suit you in just about any colour, print, or size you desire. And now, with lockdown restrictions gradually beginning to ease, we're already planning on styling them with denim cut-offs and velcro-strap sandals for picnics in the parks and alfresco brunches.
