There’s nothing sweeter this season than a blouse with an oversized bow at the neck, also referred to as the pussy-bow blouse. Not just for girly girls, the pussy-bow is more versatile than you may realize. Wear it with a sleek pencil skirt or layer it underneath a sleeveless dress for a classic, office chic look. If your style is a bit edgier than that, try tucking it into leather trousers or black skinny jeans and killer heels for a night out. Even the tomboys among us can embrace a tiny dose of femininity when pairing a bow blouse with a pair of wide leg suit pants or jeans.

To prove exactly why you need to invest in one of these amazing blouses this season, we’ve styled the pussy-bow two different ways to show off its versatility. We’ve also linked six of our favorite to buy now. What are you waiting for? Put a bow on it!
