We've been making (and wearing) this blouse since 2013 for a reason. It's the kind of piece that instantly elevates the rest of your look, with a pussy-bow silhouette that can be fully tied at the neck or just loosely knotted. Simple, elegant, easy to wear. And the fabric is a dream: a luxe, weighty 4ply silk with a finish that's lustrous but not too shiny. One of our forever favorites.
When it comes to silk, 40momme crepe de chine is our go-to. Momme (pronounced ‘mommy’) is the unit by which silk is measured, so this one's just about as heavy and luxe as it gets. Don’t let the weight throw you off… while this quality is dense and lush, it’s also pretty seasonless. Most of us wear it all year round, unless we’re in particularly hot climates without AC. (Silk has natural temperature-regulating properties.) The finish is lustrous without being too shiny. Long story short, this fabric is beautiful.
“There are lots of moods that a pussy-bow style can take. I wear it with jeans, trousers, a little pencil skirt… and if you add tall boots, it gives it a super 60s vibe. More Jean Shrimpton than Peggy Olson.”
