Fashion Trend Alert: Tie-Neck Blouses

“THESE PRODUCTS ARE NO LONGER BEING SOLD”

In the past, only certain types of women have been able to truly pull off menswear , Katharine Hepburn among them. Right now though, aspects of menswear are appearing all over, giving everyone the opportunity to be a little androgynous. But don’t think of the 1980’s working woman blouse with the limp, sad-looking bow at the neck when you picture this trend. This year’s tie-neck blouse has sharper lines, comes in a variety of fabrics, and it doesn’t have to be worn with a business suit.

    This is a style I have always liked – whether in or out of fashion – but I like the contrast between my roundness and the masculinity of the men’s wear – maybe for a more basically lanky and androgenous type it would be too much?

    I saw this trend at Target today. For a short sleeve, button down, men’s tie-inspired shirt, here’s one by Merona for $17.99:

    This shirt looks better when seen at the store. It has a pattern of tiny black dots. I think it would look cute with a black sweater vest over it!
