While the bow blouse is one of the hottest trend this season, it is in fact an old-timer in the world of fashion. Bow blouses are also known as "pussy" bow blouses which originated from the pictures of cats in children's books where aristocrats tied fancy ribbons around their pussy's necks.
These days women are updating their look this fall with the quintessential must have blouse. Be it a printed silk, a soft chiffon or a solid basic, a tie at the neckline is top notch with wide-leg slacks or skinny jeans. You can also look polished, prim and proper at work by pairing it with a pencil skirt. This trend can be worn with practically everything!
Here I decided to winterize my look with a crochet sweater and leather panel jeans for a more casual and relaxed look. I love the feminine and effortlessly chic factor of these blouses, definitely a must-have in your wardrobe. If you want to be trendy but don't want to buy a bow blouse, that's OK too, take a classic shirt, tie a scarf under its collar and voila...instant glam in seconds!
Below are some additional ways I would suggest wearing these versatile blouses. The color and style options are endless, so you can easily find one that fits your personal style vibes.
The best part is, for the ladies that are constantly struggling to stay in-trend in a professional setting, as long as it's not sheer, a pussy blouse is 100% work-appropriate! So don't be a pussy, put a bow on it =)
