Friday Five: Pussy Bow Blouses

Pussy Cat Bow Blouses Fall 2015

Don’t worry, I haven’t lost in translation naming those adorable neckties that everybody are obsessing about this season ‘pussy bow.’ Believe it or not, but pussy bow (aka pussy-cat bow) is a real term that existed in fashion lexicon since 1934 when Florida based newspaper the St. Petersburg Times popularized this type of collar as a female version of a classical tie for men. This season pussy bow blouses are back. In fact, I already purchased a military-style blouse with a pussy bow (boom, two trends in one). I am planning to wear my blouse in two ways, either tying it as a bow or as a loose simple tie knot. In case you are not on top of this trend yet, I propose to your attention those five adorable pussy bow blouses to wear this season. Which one do you like the most?

  • Thanks for sharing a bit of fashion history with us 🙂 The Alice & Olivia one is such a classic. I think I’ll be looking for a high street version come fall!

  • I LOVE bows on blouses! The huge feminine bow on the Kate Spade New York Chambray Bow Blouse is fabulous. My favourite out of the five Pussy Bow Blouses is the Rebecca Taylor Floral Print Tie Neck Top – I love the airy look of the fabric, the puffy sleeves, the print, and, of course, the generous bow.

  • These sounds like so much fun! I think a classic white button down can gain so much from a simple black “pussy-bow” Love this post idea!

  • Your pussy bow top list is just so covet-worthy! I really don’t mind wearing them all except for maybe the one with a biggest bow, hehe! There is something inexplicably sweet and charming having a loose bow tied about the neck. Brilliant picks, Katya – you have given me some ideas on what to look out for when I go out hunting for this top style 😀 xx
