If pussy-bow blouses conjure up an image of a twee, old-fashioned bookish type then wipe that slate clean and look to AW15.

For the new season, the pussybow blouse has had a makeunder of sorts. It’s not about pencil skirt pairings anymore, it’s been let loose for a more Bohemian feel that’s far more wearable for those among us with a penchant for smart-casual (split 30-60, of course). It’s all about sheer chiffon, luxe silks and lace, giving the old style classic a more relaxed aesthetic.

For his first collection at the Gucci helm, Alessandro Michele sent a lot of pussy-bows down the runway in Milan, worn with eccentric-looking suits, sleeveless jumpers and mannish trousers.

It was more about personality-packed party looks at Bottega Venetta with models in metallic pussy-bows, printed trousers and polka dots, while at Chanel, sheer blouses were styled with on-the-knee skirts.

For just the right amount of femininity, it’s all about a low-slung loosely tailored trouser. If you’re feeling a skirt then go for an a-line midi, preferably pleated, to avoid stepping into the wrong side of geek chic territory.

The pussy-bow is to the blouse world what loafers are to the shoe world; the lazy girl’s smart option. Just throw on with skinny jeans, trousers or your new lurex midi for a party-ready look.

It’s not only ideal for the sociable party season, though separates are a good way to go for mix-and-match-ability, but you’ll get wear out of it at work too. Unless, of course, you go for sheer.
