We are used to Blair’s bows and have even seen her rock a tie or two, so I had to give her school-girl-style a chic update with a big Pussy Cat bow around my neck! I already owned an over-sized bow neck tie (are you surprised?) but I wanted a silky/satin one to match the material of my skirt. I took this giant black ribbon from my tiny NYC craft closet (which is sadly just a bedazzled box… boo) and used double stick tape to “hem” the edges before tying it around my neck and slipping it under the collar. If you choose to DIY or buy (for just $15) a bow like this can really amp up a basic white blouse and Blair-ify your wardrobe.
I’m a firm believer in pattern mixing, if you do it right (and in moderation) you can really make it work with any outfit. When in doubt, just add leopard. It’s more of a neutral than a pattern anyway, and pairs perfectly with almost every other print! I even wore it with Zebra once to really switch things up.
