blouse is a loose-fitting upper garment that was formerly worn by workmen, peasants, artists, women and children. It is typically gathered at the waist (by a waistband or belt) so that it hangs loosely (“blouses” [1 ] ) over the wearer’s body. [2 ] Today, the word most commonly refers to a woman’s [3 ] shirt but can also refer to a man’s shirt if it is a loose-fitting style (e.g. [4 ] poet shirts and Cossack shirts). Traditionally, the term has been used to refer to a shirt which blouses out or has an unmistakably feminine appearance. [5 ]
The term is also used for some men’s military uniform jackets.
Zeitgeist and fashion
Are we to be against the spirit of our times or are we to “vibe” with the spirit of our times? This is a perennial question within conservative religious groups, especially within Christianity. Conservative Christians often posit images of brazen, trendy, modern Christians who have lost their “moral fiber” as warnings to church attenders and to children. This distaste for fashion within conservative Christianity revolves around the popular Christian discomfort with contemporaneousness and embodiment. This discomfort with the human condition of contemporaneousnessa and embodiment arises, not from true Christianity, but from long-standing prejudices of conservative human culture. In fact, Christ’s life is the perfect rebuttal for this attitude toward being in our present time.
However, this basic question posits a chronological snobbery that often idealizes and overvalues one era at the detriment of another. Religious or socially conservative peoples often favor periods past for their supposed “purity” and deplore the “disintegration of family and society” and long for “the good ‘ole days.” This idealization of the past involves a heavy sanitizing of past heros. For example, in Christianity, Martin Luther or John Calvin have been sanitized into looking like purely holy, exemplary Christians.

Presentness “Fashion is all about zeitgeist,” says Karl Lagerfeld backstage at Chanel’s haute couture show. “It has to be something that comes to you, but you have to be like a watch: right on time, because ‘zeit’ means time. One has to be a well-working Swiss watch. “I’m only interested in now and tomorrow,” he adds, before being hustled off to chat with Martha Stewart. “Yesterday was OK.” Messianic time—the kingdom has already happened; we are in the kingdom already. you would see everything in the present as having significance. global time
