Bow blouses may make you think of your mom back in the early eighties, but the versions currently offered are far more relaxed than their old-school counterparts,like the ones pictured at the left and worn by models in Balmain's fall runway show.
Even better, now that retailers are preparing for spring, you can get luxe designer bow blouses at great prices.
And while it's trendy now, a flowy bow blouse is always a classy look layered under a tailored jacket.
Care to see luxe bow blouses that are going for a song?
Here's a classic Bow Blouse (ASOS, $48.27) at a very nice price. Relaxed, yet refined.
The sheerness of this Roberta Scarpa blouse (YOOX, $79 on sale) keeps it from being too formal. It also comes in white and originally was $158.
My favorite designer deal on this look, though, is this Love Moschino Bow Blouse (YOOX, $65 on sale), available in white, slate blue, and mauve. The length of the bow gives you lots of options in how you want to wear it.
Still too steep? How about this Investments Bow Blouse (Dillards, $18 on sale). Now that's a price just about anyone can afford!
It's not exactly a bargain, but I couldn't resist sharing this romantic Aletta Tie Shirt (Rugby, $89.50). I love this Ralph Lauren offshoot brand!
Finally, check out this short sleeve bow blouse (Bebe, $69), which also comes in hazelnut and white and has a sort of sexy schoolteacher appeal.
What do you think of the bow blouse? Would you wear it?
