Banana Republic Bow Blouse and Flounce Skirt

The classic button down and a flirty skirt – in this post these two wardrobe staples are brought to life, with a little flare of course. Add a bow and some flounce and you have these perfect pieces by Banana Republic. Seriously, this brand can do no wrong in my eyes.  I can wear this blouse to work and furthermore, it is even chic enough to wear to an event like New York Fashion Week. It surely is a head-turner for being such a simple piece. That’s the magic of the bow accent! One of my favorite new trends is the bow blouse. This summer we have seen crisscross laces, bandanas and chokers. I predict that the trends of playing up the neck area will continue to be a huge this fall. What better way to do so than with a pretty little bow around your neck?!

Another cute style to try this fall is the flounce skirt. It’s still warm so I’m rocking bare legs, but come fall I will style this skirt with a pair of thick tights. One of my favorite things about this skirt is, well, its flounce! It’s a fun skirt to shake and move in, making it the perfect skirt to go dancing in. The skirt brings work-to-play to a whole different level. In this look I feel like I am channeling Bridget Bardot in a classic French style. Black & white, strappy heels, teased hair, big eyes and a little pout. Scroll through these darling pictures photographed by LT Images and get inspired by these fun fall looks.

    They are both really pretty! I’d probably be more likely to use the blouse, but both are great!

    First of all…. The photos are excellent. You both (photographer and model) did such a great job with that shoot. !
    I really love both looks. The blouse looks great with the shorts. And the shoes and purse really make the skirt outfit shine.
    I’d have to say it’s a tie…..

      I was a little worried it would look silly tucked in to the shorts, but not to toot my own horn – I’m totally rocking it, hehe!

    Taylor, you are such a beauty! I love both the skirt and the bow blouse – there is something fun about each of them. I would totally wear the skirt in winter with thick black tights (just like you mentioned), and I’d take that bow blouse to a media event or a Broadway show. Needless to say, you styled these pieces perfectly. Hope you are having a great week so far:)

    Okay, I am OBSESSED with the bow top!! The skirt in the first outfit is super pretty. I love how it’s flirty, but still sophisticated. You look beautiful in both outfits, but the bow tie top is just so much more my style. Great post!!

      Agreed! And it’s detachable so it’s like 2 shirts in one!

    I love both looks but I have a thing about flounce skirts and I love the pattern on this one, so I think that would be my favourite look!

    Loving these looks! I love seeing some cute work outfit inspiration- as much as I wish I could wear fun clothes, I spend so much time at work, that I love having clothes that can be worn both in the office and out. These are so amazing for that!
