Here’s How To Pull Off Casual Chic Like Katrina Kaif
Right when you thought that the Margaret Thatcher-inspired pussy-bow blouse only found momentum on the Resort 2015 runways, the Spring Summer 2016 collections brought in a slew of inspirations using this trend. Bows — big bows, double bows, pussy-bows, et al — were noticed on the runway throughout the Summer collections. While Gucci retained the pussy-bow trend in its designs this time as well, other fashion houses where bows flourished were Erdem, Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta and Proenza Schouler. This means no more tucking away those pussy-bow blouses to the back of the wardrobe.
If you take a look at its sartorial history, the pussy-bow style was actually a bow-tie equivalent for women in a man’s world. Talk about gender-bending ensembles! While it had more of a power-dressing status back then, the pussy-bow has now had a prominent style shift. When teamed right, it can work easily as a casual ensemble.
Remember when Katrina Kaif accented this Stella McCartney pussy-bow blouse with a pair of distressed skinny jeans and glossy creepers (also from Stella McCartney)? I love how the pussy-bow blouse adds a much-needed feminine touch to a rather sporty look. So chic! It is a style lesson on how to rock a pussy-bow blouse for a casual evening out.
During one of my regular ‘what’s new in the online shopping space’ exercise, I found an exact copy of this Stella McCartney pussy-bow blouse the actress has donned. Obviously, I had to share this amazing (and affordable) find with you!
