We’re here to shout it from the rooftops: forget every fashion “rule” you’ve ever read in a magazine. Rigid requirements about who can wear what are so antiquated and quite frankly, rude! Instead, we believe that rocking the latest trends and styles is all about confidence, so embrace your shape and wear what you want! Here are 5 blouses you should add to your wardrobe ASAP. They look good on every woman.

Cold Shoulder. This shoulder-baring style is very much on trend right now. The cold-shoulder top is alluring without being too revealing and works well for lots of different events and occasions. Pair it with skinny jeans and heels for a night out or with a pencil skirt and cardigan for a day at the office.

Peplum. Many people think a peplum top will add unwanted bulk around the midsection, but the right peplum top can actually work wonders when it comes to defining your waistline. We recommend choosing a solid color peplum top and pairing it with something slim-fitting and body-hugging on the bottom. Think skinny trousers or a bodycon skirt.

Crop Top. Most women think crop tops are a no-no after a certain age, but that’s simply not true. The key to making a crop top work? High-waist jeans. Or a high-waist skirt. This way, the crop top and whatever you’re wearing on bottom actually meet so you don’t risk showing any skin.

Wrap Top. Another surprisingly flattering top? Wrap tops! These are great for defining your waist, plus you can customize the sizing by tying the waist as loose or as tight as you like. If you like the look of a wrap top, but don’t want to have to worry about it coming undone, surplice tops are another amazing, flattering option. Look for one in jersey or modal, which will feel super soft and comfy against your skin.

Off-the-Shoulder. Last but not least, jump aboard the off-the-shoulder bandwagon! If there’s one blouse trend that is really hot these days, this is it. An off-the-shoulder blouse is a great option for all women because it shows off one of the most gorgeous parts of the female body–the collarbone. Add to that gorgeous sun-kissed skin and you’re sure to impress and turn heads.
