star maps: word blouses

say it on your shirt with lily allen.

The blouse. Known by every sartorially concerned person to be the ultimate wardrobe staple. Goes under sweaters, over crop tops, and is best paired with a classic pair of jeans.

But Lily Allen upped her blouse game in the front row of the House of Holland show in a blouse with tiny phrases like "XOXO" and "giddy up" printed across it. Harking back to Stella McCartney's multi-monogrammed blouses, Allen's top is a cool reinterpretation of the logo or slogan T-shirt. A little more formal, a little more tongue-in-cheek, but just as awesome. 

So we rounded up all our fave all-over printed word tops in the gallery. Remember say it (on your shirt), don't spray it.
