Tie-neck blouses can be fun, and look great when paired with bright cardigans. They’re feminine without being girly, and fun while still being office appropriate. I picked a black and white tie-neck blouse for today’s outfit, and built the rest of the outfit around it. Let’s take a look!

This tie-neck blouse is a black and white print, so I paired it with a grey skirt. I threw in a pair of peep toe black heels, which may still be frowned upon in the most conservative offices, but generally will not even remotely be an issue for everyone else.

After putting all that together, I had to find a brightly colored cardigan. The top is sleeveless, which is obviously a no-go. I found this bright purple one at Forever21, and what can I say? I’m a sucker for textured cardigans. This usually doesn’t turn out well for me, because I have a habit of falling asleep at my desk with my head on my crossed arms, and then I wake up with impressions on my face from my textured sweater.

It’s a real problem. Definitely be aware of the hazards of a textured cardigan before you attempt this ensemble.
