Is a women's dress shirt a blouse?

Traditionally dress shirts were worn by men and boys, whereas women and girls often wore blouses or, sometimes, known as chemises. However, in the mid-1800s, they also became an item of women's clothing and are worn by both sexes today.

Originally a blouse was a loose-fitting upper garment that was formerly worn by workmen, peasants, artists, women, and children.  It is typically gathered at the waist or hips (by a waistband, tight hem, pleats, pearter or belt) so that it hangs loosely ("blouses") over the wearer's body.  Today, the word most commonly refers to a girl's or woman's dress shirt.

A dress shirt, button shirt, button-front, button-front shirt, or button-up shirt is a garment with a collar and a full-length opening at the front, which is fastened using buttons or shirt studs. A button-down or button-up shirt is a dress shirt which has a button-down collar – a collar having the ends fastened to the shirt with buttons.

A ladies dress shirt is typically worn to an office setting or smart casual occasion.  A dress shirt can provide a classy and polished look.
