The Kate Blouse

The Kate Boho Blouse

Join us for a day at the beach in this multi-tasking blouse

KATE

For the first in our series of diving a little deeper into KAYVALYA's designs, we have decided to feature the Kate Boho Blouse. Kate is the only blouse in our introductory line and so we needed to make sure that she was as kick-ass as possible. She needed her own personality and to be completely multi-functional while embodying all that is KAYVALYA. And so, she needed to be light and airy for a beach cover-up, free-flowing for dancing away at a festival, and sexy enough to turn heads for a night out with the girls; all rolled into one.

The Details

Kate turned out to be all this and more. With a tie-up front that cinches in the waist, and two buttons down the front; you can show off as much or as little skin as you like. The ties in the front can be tightened for a little extra crop or leave them nice and loose for that additional bit of length.  Choose your favorite bralette or bikini and show them off under the open neckline, or wear her under overalls for that on-trend voluminous-sleeved look. A ruffled neckline adds a little something extra and the long ties at the neck can be done up (we love it like this under the overalls) or left long and loose for that perfectly carefree vibe.

The Fabric

You HAVE to feel this fabric. 

It took a while to find the perfect fabric for this piece, but we held out until we knew we had it right. The rayon is so incredibly light and soft, giving the impression that it's barely touching the body and has the perfect amount of crinkle that only gets better with washing. When we first bought this fabric, the texture was nearly smooth, but once it was washed, that beautiful crinkle came into full effect. Oh ya, and all of KAYVALYA's fabrics have been pre-washed so no need to worry about anything shrinking on you. 

Test Drive

We took Kate out to the beaches of Bali and used her as a bikini cover-up for the day. Although the humidity was in full force, she held her own and looked freaking incredible in the process (yes, we're talking about the blouse). 

Styling

Since Bali is humid as heck and calls for as little coverage as possible, we left the buttons undone and paired her with destroyed denim shorts and bare feet. This is only one of many ways and we can't wait to show you more in the future. Think high-waisted skirts, mom jeans with a western style belt and boots, or (faux) leather leggings and heels. The thing we love about the Kate blouse is that there are so many ways to style her and we can't wait to see what you babes come up with. The only necessities are a free spirit and a sense of adventure. A little wild hair never hurt anyone either.
