Bow tie blouses are fashionable around the office this fall, but the latest and greatest are Tie-Neck blouses. Take a Look at these 3, Chic Tie-Neck blouses and how to wear them to look wow at work.
1. Plaid Tie Neck Blouse
While big, floppy pussy-bow blouses are super feminine, tie-neck blouses have more of a menswear-inspired vibe. Picture your favorite silk blouse with a matching sleek, flat tie hanging down the front, and it’s easy to understand the look.
You’ll find many solid-colored tie-neck blouses in shades like dusty plum and warm honey, but there are plenty of prints too. This polished, black plaid tie-neck blouse is a great example. It’s made of comfy matte jersey and is perfect to wear with your favorite pair of black dress pants and a pair of sophisticated block-heel flats. Add a structured bag with a boss babe feel and a touch of gold jewelry, and you’re ready for business!
2. Tie-Neck Shell
Not all tie-neck blouses are alike. Some have a feminine scarf-like twist at the neck. This creamy white one almost looks like a man’s bow-tie instead of a necktie and is a lovely, polished piece for work. This top is also sleeveless, which is handy if you tend to wear a suit jacket. The elegant, sleeveless shell style will keep you looking classy but feeling cool.
Here’s some more plaid, but on the bottom this time, in the way of a beautiful wrap skirt. Plaid is trending big this fall and is the ideal print to look chic and in command.
3. Bold Print Tie-Neck Blouse
Thankfully the business world has opened its doors to more color. It’s not unusual anymore to see bright colors at work, especially in professions that involve communications, sales, and creativity. That’s where a bold print necktie blouse like this comes in. This lovely, dark floral tie-neck blouse will add a shot of life to the dark bottom half, or pair it with a contrasting bright orange pencil skirt for a fashion-forward statement.
Navy and orange are a potent color mix, so to keep your outfit from looking over the top in the boardroom, stick to a neutral-colored bag and shoes.
Tie-neck blouses are a great way to update your office wardrobe, but if you prefer sweaters, there are some beautiful tie-neck sweaters out there too. Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to wearing tie-neck tops to work. Pair a necktie blouse or sweater with a pair of jeans and some chic accessories for a casually upscale look. Come to think of it; this combo would also make a great casual Friday work look.
Anyway, go ahead and tie one on!
