You may recognise the familiar silhouette of a low-v, long sleeves and adjustable ties as the blouse shape of summer '17, worn by all your favourite style crushes on your Insta feed. Well, it's back with a bang and is yet again taking over the shops. However, if the idea of a tie-front blouse conjures up images of Britney Spears in "Baby One More Time", I'm here to convince you that there's far more to this trend than risqué school uniforms.

An ordinary button-down might be an uninspired, obvious choice of top to wear with your favourite denim but, thankfully, the tie-front blouse offers something far more eye-catching, often available in bold prints, with the plunging neckline countered by the elegant long sleeves and chic bow detail.


I've got quite a few in my wardrobe but I managed to find this dotted print version from H&M for an absolute bargain of £4! HELL YES JANUARY SALES. It has fast become my new favourite item in my wardrobe because it goes with so many different pieces - a leather pencil skirt, blue and black denim and even tailored trousers. As well as that, it's so super flattering - it cinches me in at my smallest part but skims over any of my insecurities.

Here are some others available at the moment:

Perfect for day or night, this trend will see you through the next year in style!!
