A blouse with tie or ruffle detailing turns an ordinary garment into a stylish, chic and on-trend ‘it’ piece that is deserving of a place in every wardrobe. These blouses will look fashionable paired with trousers, culottes, pencil skirts or wide skirts – basically anything. They look elegant and smart paired with a blazer or can be teamed with a straight-cut coat for a more casual look. The best thing about these is their timeless versatility.
The necktie alternative adds a feminine touch to a smart office look. It is contemporary and sleek, especially in classic black or white. Or make a statement with a pinstripe necktie blouse and pair with simple black trousers or culottes for a classy yet unique business outfit. The elegance of the necktie blouse ensures it can be worn from the office to other everyday appointments or events.
Choosing a blouse with ruffle detailing over a necktie transforms them into the perfect casual top for shopping, city breaks or having a relaxed dinner with friends. If choosing a bright or patterned blouse then team with denim to complement the relaxed look. A classic colour will allow the blouse to be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Some blouses with frills have a retro seventies feel yet maintain their elegance through soft, flowing styling. The adaptability of these blouses makes them truly special.
Keeping it classy
Whether the detailing is ruffles, frills or neckties, these blouses should always be about the quality. Pure silk blouses feel luxurious and skim the frame giving a flattering silhouette. Or for an urbane evening look, choose a blouse in a bold colour with a simple necktie, pair with simple black trousers or skirt and exude sophistication.
