How To Wear: The Pussy-Bow Blouse

By  | 

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher may have popularised this trend in the ”80s, but pussy-bow blouses are no longer prim blouses for women in a man’s world. Ditching its power-dressing status for a more bohemian take, the versatile blouse is back with a bang this season. And that’s in no small part thanks to Gucci, which gave the blouse a whimsical, romantic edge for Fall 2015. Read on to see how you can incorporate this feminine top in your everyday wardrobe and work it in a variety of fun ways.

1. Reboot Your Workwear

If you’re looking to add a fun edge to your work wardrobe, team a striped pussy-bow blouse with flared trousers. Add a stylish day bag and ankle-strap block heels to work a serious #GirlBoss vibe. Maybe you want to try something else? Switch the trousers with boyfriend jeans and add a long gilet for a cool edge.

2. A Relaxed Look For The Day

Looking for a more casual vibe? Work a printed pussy-bow blouse with a pair of frayed denim shorts. Take a cue from the back-to-school trend, and add a structured backpack and a pair of sneakers to the look. I think it’s a perfect way to work a feminine yet casual style.

3. Because Retro Is Cool

If that’s more your look, then this blouse has all the potential to work a seriously retro vibe. Tuck a 70s-inspired, floral print, pussy-bow blouse into a high-waist denim midi skirt, and complete the look with block heels and a mini messenger bag.

4. There’s More To Being Ladylike

You think pussy-bow blouses are only about showing off your feminine side? You’re absolutely wrong. While the bow may give this blouse a very ladylike touch, pairing it with distressed boyfriend jeans, an envelope sling and nude bluchers (or creepers) will allow you to keep your androgynous aesthetic intact.
