Blousson Suit

What is a Blousson Suit?

A blousson suit is a type of two-piece women's suit that gained popularity in the 1940s. It typically consists of a blouson-style jacket or top paired with a coordinating skirt or pants. The blouson jacket is characterized by its loose and gathered waistline, creating a bloused or billowy effect. The skirt or pants are often high-waisted and tailored to complement the silhouette of the blouson top. Blousson suits were fashionable during the wartime era and offered a more comfortable and relaxed alternative to traditional tailored suits. They were often made from lightweight fabrics and featured feminine details such as pleats, gathers, or decorative buttons.
