Special occasion blouses take you beyond the ordinary to add extra flair. Many women's evening wear and occasion blouses are made from sleeker fabrics that have a bit of extra sparkle and include special embellishments and details such as lace, embroidery, beading, ruffles, pearl or unusual buttons, shirring, intricate collar or sleeve accents, or other details that set the blouse apart from day wear tops.
