Pussy Bow Blouses Work for the Woman

Pussy bow blouses will be my work staple and accessory for summer. I think using that styling is a great way of implementing menswear. The bow kind of serves as a necktie, but is much more feminine and comfortable. With all the “equal pay for equal work” going on now, it’s kind of cool to reassert fashion from a time period where women were massively integrating into corporate America.

The Long + Short of It

Look for sleeveless blouses in the summer for a fun and flirty look. The best pussy bow blouses come in very lightweight fabric, so you never feel bulky and done up. I like to wear the long-sleeved variety and just push them up if I get too warm.

The Versatility of the Pussy Bow

There are two basic ways you can wear a pussy bow blouse. The first way is done up into a big bow – the bigger, the better! It takes an ordinary blouse and turns it into something original and feminine. It also takes away the need to wear jewelry and that’s always a plus if you work in a conservative environment and need a little pizzazz.

Let it Loose

This is a great way to take the blouse from day to evening! To dress the pussy bow down, forget the bow and just let the ends hang loose. It’s a staple item for any sexy librarian’s closet. Be sure to wear your hair in a bun, secured with a single bobby pin and whoosh! Voila! Pin comes, out, hair comes down, bow takes a break. You get the idea 😉

Make Your Own Bow

Better yet – grab a piece or ribbon or a thin scarf and make your own pussy bow! Making your own bow is my preferred option because you can get funky with mix-and-match patterns. Then it really does turn the blouse into true menswear fashion, where you can create your own tie.

Perfect for a Night Out

Up, down, tied, loose; this blouse just doesn’t stop working for you! It looks great tucked into a pair of vintage jeans (especially with a high-rise waist) and instantly dresses up your look. I also like a pussy bow blouse over a hot pair of pants when you’re going for that loose and free look on nights out. One blouse and you’ve got so many easy options for your wardrobe. Menswear is super sexy when you add those feminine flairs. I kind of like a little extra androgyny in the office. It helps men to be less confused. An empowered woman is the epitome of feminist success, so if you’re not feeling the part, at least look the part! The rest will fall into place as you go.
