If I can only buy one new piece of clothing for the Fall, what should it be?
Possibly because it adds instant elegance, offers bountiful versatility and layering options, and appeared on many Fall 2011 runways, the neck-tie blouse is your one must-have item. You can find the necktie top in many variations, from glamourous evening gowns to low-key button ups. A silk blouse version, in a classic creme, vibrant hue, or black and white graphic, can be dressed up or down, layered with fall vests, cardigans, sweaters or jackets and paired with pencil skirts, trousers, and even jeans. Tied high or tied low, in a bow or just a fold, over or under, this is the piece that feels new everyday. Gucci, probably the most, tied many of its great looks with a bow:
|*Style note: Layer with a sweater, belt it with a skinny, and drape over with a long pendant|
|*Style note: A scarf can cast the same effect. Try a plunging V neck and tie to the side.|
