Bow Tie Blouse for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Good for Evenings

Bow Tie Blouse for women in the age groups 50's, 60's & 70's.

Quote of the day: “I have found that people tend to live up, or down, to your expectations.” Cathy Keiran

My perception of a blouse is somewhat dressy anyways. And I usually make us more formal by adding a leg baring piece. But this time, I thought I’d add a little more variety. Nancy got to wear a skirt, but since many women admit to not loving skirts or dresses, I had mom and I wear pants. All three of these outfits really could be interpreted as business appropriate also (just like we styled here). Another variation for these same blouses was a casual day here.

50’s Bow-Tie Blouse:  Check out the print of this blouse. What fashion blogger doesn’t love a clothing item with clothes on it? The ring and necklace I won from Joyiia & Tilden (from the To Be Bright blog).

60’s Bow Tie Blouse: For this outfit, I tried to make the ties look like a scarf flowing down the sides of the cardigan.

70’s Bow Tie Blouse: Mom’s earrings are  Murano glass from Venice! And I finally let her tie her ties in a bow–although I wish the bow was lower and more relaxed.

      Thanks Ali!

  • I adore the print on your blouse but I’m especially partial to the polkadot one your Mom is wearing. If she ever needs to get rid of that…um hello! ; P I’ll gladly take it off her hands.

      Thanks for such a nice comment, Valerie!! You are absolutely right about it getting better—probably because we’re now smarter!!

  • Great styling Jodie, and really pretty new jewelry! xo

      Thanks Patti!! I was so glad when I won it, because my closet lacks in gold jewelry for some reason!!

  • I think pussy bow blouses are so darling. Normally I’d style them tucked into a high-waisted skirt or worn loose over trousers. Belting them like in the third look is a great styling suggestion!

      Thanks for your input Liz. I have to laugh when I see the name “pussy bow blouse” —did you read when Samantha titled a post that name and she got a bunch of “different” sites looking at hers?

      • Haha! I can imagine. I have a product roundup post featuring nude pumps. It’s also important to note that most of my blogs are tagged with “plus size.” I therefore get a lot of “different” search results that direct users to that post. I just have to laugh because I can only assume they’re sorely disappointed when they realize it’s a roundup of shoes.

    I love your picks!

      Thanks Lanae!!

  • I really love the print on your blouse and the jewelry you won…I like the color combo Nancy has going on…and your mom was right to tie the bow the way she did. It’s very retro.

      You’re right, of course, it is very retro to tie the blouse that way! I wonder why I don’t love it? I like bows on my shoes…
