You fall in love with a fab, new top and can't wait to take it home; but yet somehow, you always end up wearing it in the same way, with the same outfit. Sound familiar? Stylist Erica Wark can help. See how she works the current look du jour, the bow blouse (available at Joe Fresh), into three dazzlingly different looks--perfect for work, play or hitting the town!
If you're off to work, try a side bow for a less bulky effect.

Try a loose bow with a cardigan or military jacket for a comfy, casual look.

Hitting the Town
Don't be afraid to pair a necklace with the bow blouse; or layer a few to create a waterfall effect.
