Gap European Collection Tie-Neck Pintuck Top: Love It or Hate It?

Lately I've been pondering why girls wear tie-neck blouses because they're generally not flattering. This Gap Tie-Neck Pintuck Top, $88, from the limited-edition European collection, backs up my theory. It looks too matronly and does nothing for a gal's figure. What's your take?

I completely disagree - I love tie-necks, especially with bows. I like this tie-neck but I hate the bottom - it looks like the bottom of a peasant blouse which totally doesn't go...

it wasn't a good look in the '80s and it's not a good look now

Pussy bow shirts are gorgeous if they are fitted and in a soft fabric, like silk. This is all just way too harsh. I said undecided.

I'm with you Kiki tee...I love pussy bows (I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only person who calls them that). They're one of those things that are totally dependent on who wears them and what they wear them with. They can look cool or awful, there's not much middle ground (having said that, this particular shirt isn't the greatest example).

Ugh I'm sure I saw something just like that in my grandmothers closet.

Gross! It doesn't flatter woman's shape at all.

This looks ridiculously frumpy! Not to mention something I could find in polyester at the Goodwill. A definite no especially for $88

Ewwww - I think this blouse is channeling all of the unfashionable grandmas's of the world.

It is VERY 80's. That's all I'm gonna say.

as long as everything else was slim and sleek and you had some great jewlery, like a wild broach or long gold pentand it could really work.

i usually love tie-neck blouses, but this one is just bad. the trick is find an old vintage one in a crazy pattern and then have it tailored to be more body conscious instead of blocky and weird. it's a great look when properly executed.

Well put Rugelach! I like pussy bow tops (or dresses) for their very frumpiness! They're like a challenge and I've seen them lok very, very sexy on some people. I'm not thinking of Margaret Thatcher, by the way.

I usually like tie-necks, although the rest of this particular shirt looks really unappealing. Shirts with high necks and piles of voluminous ruffles and ribbons work much better on my flat bony chest than sleek or revealing tops. Also, they're great for layering. I think they're really cute peeking out from a jacket or sweater, and super-modest tops provide a nice balance for short skirts and heels.

good grief that looks like something from the 80's.
