If you didn’t already realise, 2019 is the yr of the celebration blouse. The oft-bright, usually crowd preventing and yes, geared up to celebration, variations of the traditional shirt are everywhere this season. Whether they’re styled with shells and velcro sandals for a severely daggy — yet one way or the other oh-so high fashion — look or worn tucked into your trusty pair of Levis, the broadcast blouse made for having a laugh is getting into its own
But the global phenomena is no more than in Australia, wherein locals are choosing up on the movement with gusto. A recent viral tweet highlighted hundreds of guys at summer festivals sporting the identical $30 Cotton On celebration blouse, and love for neighborhood label Double Rainbouu has never been better, with fans of the logo buying up in bulk to get via the birthday celebration season. But the shirts aren’t only for men anymore, with the likes of Prada and Gucci giving the souvenir store staple the girl tick of approval. Whether it’s a kitschy sample or a brightly hued cloth that catches your interest, regardless of your choice the birthday party blouse merits a gap for your cloth cabinet.
Below, we’ve rounded up our favourites from the season — such as, yes, a trusty addition from Lowes, the unique celebration shirt makers.
