Fall 08 Fashion Trend: Neck/Bow Ties Are Back!

There is a new fashion trend in town that is savvy and feminine, the neck/bow ties. I did not care much for it when I was younger but depending on the style, this new fashion trend could potentially be savvy. After seeing so many ruffles this season, which I still adore, it is nice to see something different yet still along the same feminine element. I am seeing myself with dramatic neck tie blouse or a preppy demure neck tie blouse, nothing in the middle for me.

Luxurious silk and satin blouses accented with a beautifully executed neck tie are not only savvy but oh so stylish. I can’t wait to find my special blouse, or perhaps a DIY neck tie blouse to show off my creative side. Which one do you like or too retro for you?

  11. it's a very savvy style which i adore but it's important to do it right so it's not grandma-ish as pointed out by always in style.

  13. I really like neck tie blouses. They give an otherwise plain blouse some excitement! When it gets cold, I like to pair mine with a short jacket or a sweater and let the bow pop out. it's a really cute look.

    i love the marc one, I'd wear that with some skinny jeans. And the robert rodriguez is fabulous for a night out.
