TIE ONE ON!

Tie-front blouses are perfect for the office and transition well to post work fun. Guys aren't the only ones who can wear ties! I love androgyny, but am a very girly girl...take this decidedly male look and flip it with these feminine colors and silky/satiny textures. Check out my picks below.

StyleTip: These shirts look great with high waisted pencil skirts and opaque tights.

Clockwise, outer semi circle: turquoise TopShop frill sleeve blouse £25.00; purple chiffon blouse-and-sweater-vest ensemble, $990.00 at Escada; blue silk Sportmax blouse $550.00, at MaxMara; red stretch charmeuse blouse, $345.00 at Miguelina; white D&G Dolce & Gabbana sheer silk blouse, $285.00 on net-a-porter; polka dotted silk lurex blouse, $308 at Tibi. Inner semi circle: yellow silk chiffon blouse, Walter, $143.00; 201-420-1665 or at Jessie James; pink silk blouse, Walter, $130.00 at Saks; black Forever 21 satin blouse $19.80.

I really like the inexpensive and super cuter tie-front shirts at Speigel -silk charmeuse for $59.00 and Banana Republic -metallic flutter sleeve top in gold and silk lame, $49.00. Click on the label below for vintage Style Trends posts!

I love these! Love the post. I think the tie fronts are decidedly feminine, actually, and hearkens back to a more covered-up era ;-) I rock my tie fronts as often as possible - with the pencil skirt, tyvm. :-) Especially dig the purple one . . . What's available on the more affordable tip? Some of these are close to my car note!

Yeah, these shirts are perfect for anything with a high waist. It kind of evens things out. I’ve seen a few people rocking the high waist, with regular tanks, and it just made their boobs look low.
