Ok before I start this blog post – I want to make one thing clear – I prefer to refer to the ‘Pussy-bow blouse’ as the ‘Bow-Blouse’ – the term ‘Pussy-bow’ just doesn’t sit right with me….if you know what I mean……..(just saying’!!).  So with that out of the way – lets take a moment to silently rejoice and hail the bow-blouse which has made a welcome return this season and I for one am very happy.  I just love the ‘Thatcher-esque’, lady-like, prim and proper style of this piece of clothing – I find it so versatile and classic and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it can completely change up a look – it can be worn casual, chic, smart, dressy and for 2015 it has been rekindled as an emblem of bohemia with aspects of sheer, delicate fabrics and lace and teamed with wide-legged trousers and midi-pleated skirts!! Fab!!

I have styled quite an androgynous, smart, monochrome look (above). By adding flat loafers and peg trousers, this can really work as a nice day-time look for the office, a meeting or lunch with the girls for example.  It can then easily and simply transcend into a fabulous night-time outfit by adding a killer pair of black heels or high shoe-boots, a fab statement ring, keeping the clutch bag and vamping up the makeup with some lashes and a striking eye-liner flick.  Do this and you are soooo ready for a night on the tiles!  Of course – it goes without saying – the red lips are a fab added accessory.  I for one, am a huge fan of red lips (it has never left me since my Emirates flying days!!!) so I instantly feel dressed up when I put it on.

Of course – this is just one way to style the bow blouse.  A gorgeous and very trendy way to style the blouse for this season is to layer it – for example under a dress with a pair of ankle boots, with a leather skirt or with a fab pair of leather trousers as worn here by the lovely Cheryl Fernandez.

 The bow blouse is certainly having a ‘moment’ right now and the high street in particular is awash with lots of different styles.  Here’s a couple I’ve come across and which I think are quite good buys to have in your wardrobe to get you through the season and possibly more:

Hope you enjoyed my take on the bow blouse for 2015 – lets hope this style stays around for a while and transcends into Spring at least!  I for one will enjoy styling it in different ways and of course shopping for new styles – any excuse, ha, ha!
