Find your Perfect Bow-Neck Blouse

Back in the 70’s and 80’s, when women first started landing corporate jobs, there weren’t many examples of business casual attire for ladies. The bow-neck, tie-neck or pussy-bow blouse came into play as women reinterpreted men’s fashion (i.e. a suit with a button-down and a tie). This throwback has become an essential piece in my closet. This sheer black blouse with its fun floral print gives an old shirt a cool new feel. This one has feminine vibes that add softness to these leather-patchwork leggings.

Look for sheer fabrics, pastels or bold prints to add to your closet this season. To keep this look from being too prim, tie an imperfect bow, or just leave it untied!

Here are a few of my favorites from around the web!
