The higher the better when it comes to blouse necklines this season, or so said the F/W 19 runways! From Celine to Chloe, practically every major designer had us yearning for ladylike blouses that sit high up on the neck and exude a sophisticated (not to mention affluent-looking) aesthetic. Whether you go for old-timey ruffled collars, tie-neck blouses, or pussy-bow detailing, fashion girls everywhere are embracing high-neck blouses that play into the bourgeois trend, and they're pairing them with everything from high-waisted jeans, pleated midi skirts, and wide-leg trousers. Moreover, the blouse style is perfect for work (exuding a prim and professional vibe) but won't look out of place at happy hour either. Scroll below for inspiration on how to wear the trending blouse style and shop our favorite picks.

Blouses with high-neck bows were paired with bougie check midi skirts at Celine exuding a prim and proper look.

Elizabethan-style high-neck ruffle collars added a sophisticated touch to bootcut jeans at Chloe.

Pussy-bow blouses came in sheer lilac fabrics at Valentino and were given a modern, cool-girl touch, worn under hoodie sweatshirts.

Add drama to a pair of minimalist tailored shorts and opt for a ruffled collar and sleeves in delicate lace.

Pair a feminine polka-dot pussy-bow blouse with edgy leather pants for a modern look.

A ribbon tie-neck blouse looks pretty and professional when paired with tailored trousers. 

Opt for a lightweight, cotton high-neck blouse with puff sleeves for a pretty, vintage look.

Go for a dramatic period look, and pair a high neck ruffle collar under a formfitting sweater.

A billowy high-neck blouse looks effortless when paired with slim jeans and knee-high boots.

Have fun with pretty pastel hues in silky textures for an outfit that screams opulence.

Big-bow energy!

Such a pretty print.

We love a little '70s vibe.

Just add high-waisted jeans.

From desk-to-drinks in style.

Up next, Zara just made an entire collection around this "boring" trend.

Kate Middleton's look for her latest public appearance was decidedly more, well, nautical than what we're used to seeing her wear. But as we recently reported, she has a new stylist (and former British Vogue editor) that's helping to craft her looks as of late, and she's keeping us on our toes. The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
