How To Make A Pussy Bow Blouse Work For Your Bust Shape

The pussy bow blouse is hot news this season, and thanks to Gucci’s SS16 catwalk collection it’s going to be rolling all the way into spring. Want to style it up without looking too much like a 1970s typing pool assistant? Here’s how.

For a small bust

Try scene-stealing colours and punchy prints, or try risque sheer fabrics and unbuttoned necklines for a flirty evening look. If you want to enhance a smaller bust, look for a blouse with a large bow and short ties - this simple styling trick will create the illusion of drama and volume on your chest, giving your bust a bit of extra oomph.

For a big bust 

Long skinny ties

Flatter your bust by picking a bow with long skinny ties to draw the eye away from your chest and balance things out. Stark colour contrasts such as black on white are the most effective for this. Also, you don’t necessarily have to wear it tied up – try loosening it and showing some skin for an 'undone bow-tie' look. I love the rock ‘n’ roll skinny ties, which you can wear long or bow with just about everything and give your look a punch of retro cool.
