I love an androgynous look. Every now and then I wear a bit of a androgynous look by adding a tie to my outfit. The most easiest way to make a look a bit more androgynous. I don’t like to wear blouses that much. I often find it a bit stiff looking on me. That’s why I don’t wear the cuffs closed, I don’t like that at all. Never do when I wear a blouse. Here I wore a tie with a sweater and trousers.
Wearing a tie on a feminine blouse
This silk blouse has a nice lipstick print. It was actually quite warm when I was wearing this, too warm for a leather skirt, faux leather, but I wasn’t going to let that put me off. I wanted to wear this skirt! And I wanted to wear a tie! As a 16 year old I used to wear blouses more often because even then I liked to wear ties all the time, for a while. I stayed quite true to my style, rather taste, I don’t think I have a style.
How to feminine a androgynous style
Well of course by wearing a skirt instead of trousers. And a fun printed blouse like this lipstick print one. But wearing a tie doesn’t need a printed blouse necessarily of course. And I added a bit of color, not to much, but just to make the look less cool. If I wanted cool, I would wear my laced up ankle boots and skip the small belts and wore only gold colored jewelry.
I wear small coral red earrings, the color of the lipsticks. My favorite statement ring, and two orange bow straps to add some color and keep the outfit a bit airy. Otherwise I thought this look was a bit too strict. A whip would then only be missing …. The sandals are very old and I like them so much. They have a bit of a clog heel and a few studs and actually run very well. And now I am going to sit in my garden and enjoy the sun….and sweat a bit in my skirt!
Shop the wearing a tie look!

Hi Nancy, your outfit looks georgeous! Lipstick blouse plus black tie: extraordinary but chic!
Thank you very much!
Oh, this reminds me of an outfit I did last year! https://sheilaephemera.blogspot.com/2019/04/inspired-by-black-and-white-and-gold.html
I love adding a traditionally masculine item, like a tie or a vest, to an outfit. I adore this look on you, Nancy – the pops of orange/coral are awesome.
Haha, fantastic! We could do a Twinning Friday!
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS LOOK NANCY!! So fabulous and stylish, makes me want to put on a tie. Love it?
Try it! Thanks love!
OMG, Nancy, I love this so much! I used to wear ties in high school, too, and still occasionally will wear one. I also cannot stand buttoning the cuffs of my sleeves! The lipstick print on your blouse is so adorable and I am loving your orange bow belts! Thanks for linking up.
Thanks Shelbee, I can picture you in a tie!
I love this outfit Nancy! I’d wear it in a heartbeat. The print of the shirt and the orange belt are fabulous details…and the tie is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for linking up!
Thanks! That makes me smile!
This look is so stylish! I’m not usually one for androgynous outfits but I love the look you created here. The leather skirt is particularly cute and the orange belts are such a fun and interesting addition to the outfit!
Miles of smiles,
Thank you very much!
