My favorite fashion discoveries are always the ones that come about unexpectedly—where I become completely enamored with a product I didn’t even know I needed in the first place.

What I love about this Numi blouse
Despite the seemingly anti-science technology, I appreciate that Simone’s Numi button-up blouse looks just like a blouse. The top is made from a sustainable silk material that is stain-resistant to water-based liquids, thanks to Bluesign-certified stain-resistant technology. When I first discovered the top, I was skeptical about whether the sweat shirt might look too stiff or rough. After all – how can any material be waterproof That Comfortable? Fortunately, all of my concerns about the shirt’s comfort quickly disappeared the first moment I put it on (as did any sweat or liquid residue on the actual shirt). Sure, the blouse looks super-breathable and sleek, but it achieves this without sacrificing comfort and style in the process.
What is worth noting
The retailer has a note on its website that the top is tighter on the sleeves. I’m usually a medium in tops and blouses, so I took a risk and ordered my regular size, even with the fit warning in mind. While the top fits comfortably, I can attest that the sleeves are certainly more comfortable than some of the other blouses in my closet. Personally, I don’t mind this – if anything, I actually appreciate it considering how notoriously large and large the large number of buttons are. That being said, if you’re someone who likes their tops to fit a little looser or just want more breathability in the sleeves, I’d definitely recommend ordering a size up to ensure optimal comfort.

Whether you struggle with sweating (me!), are notoriously uncoordinated and prone to spilling water or other liquids on yourself (me too!), or just appreciate fashions that aim to keep you feeling And your freshness is in any environment.

But it’s also a worthwhile investment piece that’s so comfortable, stylish and effective, I’m sure it’ll stay in everyone’s wardrobe for years to come.
