Way back when (that would be the 90’s!), I was obsessed with Equipment silk blouses. I had a wide range of colors and rotated them with jeans, black pants and skirts. They were my part of my uniform. When I look back at pictures of myself they look boxy and over sized, now that I think about it, everything I wore back then was boxy and over sized! Here is a perfect example of my beautiful blue equipment blouse tucked into my hi-waisted black pants:
That was a long time ago and the original company disbanded shortly there after. I should have kept my originals as collectors items and because classic silhouettes never go out of style, but sadly they no longer reside in my closet. I did save one long navy sleeveless silk shirt dress that I need to pull out and see if it still fits and suits me (I will share a picture if I wear it). Recently, I rediscovered Equipment (the brand was relaunched in the Spring of 2010) and their “Slim Signature” blouse that is much more flattering on my shape and comes in the classic colors that I now tend to gravitate to. I will be adding one (or maybe two!) to my closet and they will be part of my Fall uniform.
