Fun, fanciful and fashion-forward, the Princess of Wales has embraced the bow blouse as her signature style. Paired with slacks or skirts, the pussy bow blouse has vintage influence with corporate charm.

A beautiful tie neck top gives the princess an opportunity to show off a playful presentation and a bit of style whimsy. The princess has worn ribbon shirts for Royal Ascot, palace garden parties, trips abroad and visits to the museum.

Kate owns a slew of bow adorned blouses — here’s why.

Here are 10 Reasons Why Kate Middleton Can’t Resist a Bow Blouse:

1. Elevates an Ordinary Outfit

Kate’s collection of bow blouses means she’s always ready for boardroom meetings, Zoom calls or last minute luncheons. The bow detail blouse makes a basic blazer or peplum jacket more fun flair.


2. Adds Whimsy to a Work Wardrobe

Delightful and dainty, Kate’s bow trimmed blouses like her Gerard Darel silk shirt (worn in January 2017 with a Hobbs skirt set) offer her polished professional pieces more feminine flourish.


3. Creates Intrigue and Interest

A basic blouse gets a little stale and stuffy, so a floppy front bow makes a look more enchanting and exciting.


4. Imparts Perky Polish

A bow-tied neckline makes any look more peppy and perky. For designer bow blouses, Kate prefers Gucci or Burberry. She also loves Barbour, Alice Temperley, Ralph Lauren and Elie Saab.


5. Negates a Necklace

In lieu of big and distracting jewelry, the princess can rely on a swinging statement bow to replace the need for clanky and cumbersome jewelry.


6. Bows are Beautiful

Big and boisterous bows resolve the need for a printed or graphic shirt and give a silk button down plenty of beauty.

7. Classic Corporate Chic

Loose or tied, a bow accent is versatile and simple. It can be paired with trousers, skirt suits or even denim.


8. Girly without Going Glam

No need for heavy beading, rhinestones or jewels, a bow blouse does plenty of talking.


9. Boardroom Standout

Graceful, feminine and flouncy, the bow detail offers a sharp and smart aesthetic. It keeps a shirt looking sophisticated with a hint of regal romance.

10. Feminine and Frilly

Soft and subtle, the bow blouse is a must for office meetings or daily work days. Adding feminine energy to menswear staples like stiff blazers and structured jackets, the bow blouse is perfect for a Windsor wardrobe.
