The Deceptively Sexy ’70s Blouse is Back

Share

Despite being quite covered up, a ‘70s-inspired, high-neck blouse manages to exude plenty of seductive energy. (If you’ve ever seen Maggie Gyllenhaal’s sublime costumes in The Honourable Woman, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.) Maybe it’s that louche silhouette or the teasing appeal of a slightly undone bow at the neckline, but the look is just dripping with mysterious allure. Plus, on a practical level, there are so many ways to style it, courtesy of Kendall Jenner, Rose Byrne and Alexa Chung. Behold.
