Tie Neck Blouse
Be a fashion star with the standout style of a tie-neck blouse. Structure stays fairly steadfast, which lets you play with print. Most blouses in this style feature a tied bow at the neckline, draping down the front of the top (at center). Think about whether the bow should stand-alone or accompany embellishments like lace. Try the design in the playfulness of a sleeveless top or the elegance of a long-sleeve shirt.
Want a tie-neck blouse even more avant-garde? Employ a hint of asymmetry. Draw a sleeveless top all the way up with a high neckline, tied at the side by a bow. The symmetry of the tie running down the front is abandoned, but the beauty of a new structure emerges.
In either design of tie-neck blouse, take on magnificent pattern. Diamond shapes flood a tribal print. The look of paisley and floral prints interweave into a single pattern. In the same black and white palette, a pattern more abstract and artsy comes into play. Infuse more color into the design—red and tan—to play around with circular spots.
Abandon pattern to allow the beauty of design to rise to the forefront. Stick to tones of white, softened ever so slightly to a sugary vanilla hue, and nothing will detract from the lovely structure of a tie-neck blouse. Explore the collection of women’s clothing at Macy’s to experience it all.
