My first attempt at the tie-front blouse trend resulted in something slightly resembling a sailor costume (a couple weeks ago, here). And now today's attempt is a little Colonel Sanders. I will take the fried chicken, because I like today's version better! I am really liking this skinny tie-front blouse and can see myself wearing it a lot this season.
My first outfit (above) is inspired by a magazine spread. I love the sophistication the skinny tie adds to a navy boucle jacket and black trousers. And my second look (below) is a fun (and much cheaper) take on Gwen Stefani's outfit. I don't know if I will ever wind up wearing it as pictured, but I do like the overall idea and Gwen looks great in it. (I swear she can pull off anything!) Which outfit do you like better?
