This gar­ment is tra­di­tion­ally known as a pussy-bow blouse, but that name takes on a whole new mean­ing in the Trump era, so let’s call it “tie-front” in­stead. Wear­ing one might ap­pear a dar­ing act at first glance – it’s so overt and frothy you’d think it would be a one-out­fit-only won­der. But the col­lar-come-neck-scarf is re­mark­ably ver­sa­tile. Pick one in a colour that brings out your eyes and you’ll wear it for life – or at least as long as the silk lives. Silk’s two main en­e­mies are grease or oil and acid (that is, sweat), so this is a top you’ll want to wash af­ter ev­ery wear.
