My favorite fashion discoveries always happen unexpectedly — where I find myself completely drawn to a product I didn’t even know I needed in the first place. I’ll admit, as a shopping editor, I’m usually pretty clued up on all the latest and greatest product trends, so it’s rare these days that anything surprises me too much. But when it happens, it is always A delight recently when I was introduced to Noomi’s Simone Button-Up Blouse ($220) – a stain- and sweat-proof top that aims to have all the same appeal of a classic office blouse with the constricting discomfort, without the fear of sweat stains. , or water damage.

But the moment I heard about Noomi’s magical blouse, I knew my sweaty, spill-prone self had to check out the brand’s best-selling fashion. While Noomi has no shortage of fans consisting of fashionistas and celebrities (Kelly Ripa also swears by this Noomi blouse!), the brand recently managed to win over another one of me. Keep reading to see how this sweat-proof blouse has already replaced other work tops in my wardrobe.
What I love about this Numi blouse
Despite the seemingly sci-fi technology, I appreciate that Noomi’s Simone button-up blouse feels just like a blouse. The top is made from a durable silk material that is stain resistant from water-based liquids, courtesy of the Bluesign-certified stain-resistant technology incorporated into the blouse. When I first discovered the top, I had some reservations about whether the sweat-proof shirt might feel too stiff or rough. After all—how can any waterproof material be? that Comfortable? Fortunately, all of my concerns about the shirt’s comfort dissipated the first moment I slipped it on (as the actual shirt had any sweat or liquid residue). Sure, the blouse feels incredibly breathable and smooth, but it achieves this without sacrificing comfort and style in the process.
What is worth noting
There is a note on the retailer’s website that reveals that the top is tighter in the sleeves. I’m usually a medium in tops and blouses, so I took the risk and went ahead to order my usual size, even with the fit caveat in mind. Although the top fits comfortably, I can confirm that the sleeves are definitely more snug on my arms than other blouses in my closet. Personally, I don’t mind it — if anything, I actually appreciate how notoriously oversized and too many button-ups can be. That being said, if you’re someone who likes their tops to fit a little more loosely or you want some extra breathability in the sleeves, I’d definitely recommend ordering up a size to ensure optimal comfort.

Whether you’re someone who sweats (me!), notoriously uncoordinated and prone to spilling water or other liquids on yourself (me too!), or value fashion items that keep you feeling and looking fresh in any environment, this top is seriously perfect for you. . Compared to other luxury blouses in the market right now, the Simone button-up blouse by Noomi certainly boasts a hefty price tag. But it’s a worthwhile investment piece that’s so comfortable, stylish and functional, I’m sure it’ll be a staple in anyone’s wardrobe for years to come.
