{Trend Alert...}

bow tie blouses
 Here are a few variations on this chic look:
  • For a menswear-inspired look, wear a cotton bow tie blouse with a skinny jean paired another one of the season's must-have items: the long boyfriend blazer.
  • Work the transparent fashion trend by wearing a sheer bow tie blouse with a pair of skinny or even a pair high-rise wide-leg jeans or trousers, and finish it off with a slim-fitting cropped blazer or faux fur vest.
  • Look for blouses in solid colors, tiny polka-dots or other small prints. Steer clear of large, busy patterns; the bow tie is embellishment enough.

Cheat the Trend

For the look-for-less: fake the bow tie blouse look by wearing an button-up blouse and tying a coordinating silky scarf (or thick ribbon) loosely around your neck in a knot or bow. Voila! – now you've got a faux-tie blouse!

  1. Definitely need to invest in those mustard and polka-dot bow tie blouses! They are fantastic!
