ALL IN THE DETAILS: Bringing Back the Neck-Tie Blouse

Trend alert: The neck-tie blouse is having a moment! The enthusiasts among us—from street style stars to those walking the runway—cannot get enough of this ’70s-inspired piece and its versatility. With this update on the classic blouse, it makes it difficult for one to go wrong, and I believe that it will be a trend that will stick around for the new season ahead.

What I love most about the neck-tie blouse is that it comes in several different styles, along with a wide range of prints, colors, and silhouettes. The romantic staple has popped up in unique variations on both the street and runway, which proves that there is most definitely a blouse that will fit anyone’s style. I have seen the neck-tie blouse paired with everything from high-waisted denim bottoms to a metallic, pleated skirt. So, you can take the classic, minimal approach or be a little bit more daring with your look. The options are endless!

Here in Canada, with the winter chill upon us, this Fashionista has made the neck-tie blouse the perfect piece for layering. This approach allows her to stay warm but still look stylish. She has teamed a bell-sleeve sweater, with the neck-tie detail draped out the front, with simple black, denim bottoms. To complete the look, she has chosen to wear black loafers with leather and gold accents; her painted red fingertips adding a nice final touch to the outfit.

The bottom line?  If you’re a lover of ’70s throwback pieces and want to try something fun and bold, you need to add this piece to your closet, stat.  I know that this Fashionista, with her effortlessly stylish approach to wearing the neck-tie blouse, has definitely inspired me to do so.
