Summertime is a season to lay back, romp in the long days and glorious sunshine, and just live a little. Tie-front tops exhibit the same vibrations of casual, comfortable, playful clothing, worn well with pants, shorts and skirts.
Tie-front tops are tops or blouses that usually button up the front, and are tied into a knot at the hem of the shirt, allowing the wearer to select what length they would like the top to be. A tie-front shirt can be knotted at the thighs, the hips, the waist or even over the rib cage, if desired!
Tie-front tops are the perfect attire to wear during summertime romps!
Tie-Front Top Fun Fact: Tie-front tops or blouses look exquisite when worn as an open crop top, with a tank top worn underneath the tie-front top, paired with a hip hugger, ankle length maxi skirt or a dressy, hip hugger pair of palazzo pants. Highlight the outfit with a pair of patent leather pumps, and you are ready for a nice brunch, wedding or baby shower, an elegant dinner or night on the town!
This look truly makes for a feminine, dainty, wow factor ensemble!
Charming and trendy tie-front tops!
Three Ways to Wear the Tie-Front Top:
- Take a button down shirt or blouse that already exists in your closet, leave all buttons open except for the second to the last button near the hemline (button this button) and then tie the two bottom sections of the shirt into a knot. This will allow the long blouse to become a waist blouse, if you prefer.
- Take your shirts and blouses that button up the front, and instead of tying the ends of the shirts into a knot, tie them into a bow. This makes for a fancier look.
- Wear your tie-front blouse with skirts, shorts, skinny jeans or bell bottomed jeans. The tie-front top fits well with most all bottom garments!
One great thing about a tie-front top is that you can take a clothing garment that already exists in your wardrobe, and merely by tying the front in various fashion formats, you can look and feel as if you are wearing a new blouse or shirt!
The tie-front top is definitely a trendy, chic look for sheer fashion fun and eye catching elegance!
Tie-Front Top Fun Fact: Depending on the collar of the tie-front top, some sort of neck jewelry generally offsets the look well. For a collared blouse, I would wear a shorter necklace, much like a choker or a short-chained necklace. If the tie-front top doesn’t have a collar, a longer chained necklace or a medallion looks marvelously magnificent and stylish!
Sometimes, when wearing a V-neck shirt, I think it looks extremely pretty to go bare necked (don’t wear any type of a necklace) and then wear large, dangling earrings to add some sparkle and oomph to your outfit! This creates a sexy, sensual appearance.
