Marc Jacobs 'tie neck' silk top

Marc Jacobs silk top (great MJ style sale here)

Tie-Neck Blouse

Why it keeps coming back: “It’s a way to communicate sexy femininity without being revealing,” says Trina Turk. Which is why power dressers from the hard-charging Gordon Gekko 80s to today have tied up deals in them.

Keep it if: “It’s well made by a big-name designer, because they tend to use better proportions. Or if it’s dramatic, with an extra-long tie, so it is a statement piece, not just that season’s fad,” says Verdi.

Toss it if: It’s a cheapo, mass-produced take on the look, in which case it’s bound to bear signs of its era (a too-boxy cut or a synthetic material that won’t age well). And, says Taylor, “get rid of anything that’s too reminiscent of Tootsie.”

Tie neck tops come back every summer, from premier designer collections to contemporary brands. They are chic, day-to-night and dress up-and-down pieces. 

Different as Miss Wu tie neck blouse (black silk on the above picture; new dot print crepe de chine silk blouse), you don't need tie the knot for this Marc Jacobs top - it is just there :-)

Marc Jacobs clothes are either made in Italy or USA, either of which have a nice quality. Silk is more likely crepe de chine, less wrinkles and pretty luster. Now is about the best time to shop summer clothes - sale is up to 65% off (love this pretty MJ floral silk top, and we still have plenty time to wear them this season. Size wise, MJ tops are pretty true to size (for your reference, I normally wear xs tops, and wear MJ size 2).

Thank you for reading and Happy shopping!
