Samantha Cameron, Margaret Thatcher and a pussy bow blouse

The fashion pack had all eyes on Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife, Samantha Cameron, who chose to wear a pussy-bow blouse to Baroness Thatcher’s funeral yesterday – a style greatly favoured by the late, former Prime Minister, herself.

The Guardian, The Telegraph, and MSN Life & Style, amongst many, carried fashion articles immediately after Sam Cam arrived in her beige pussy bow blouse, black suit, and little black pill box hat for the funeral at St Paul’s cathedral.It was a bit of a ‘dress-up’ ensemble, and whilst a favourite in vintage circles, the pussy-bow blouse can be a bit of a difficult one to pull off.

But bows themselves are a great fashion statement if you want to ‘pretty up’ your look – they’re certainly a nod to femininity – perhaps that was what the late Mrs Thatcher, dubbed the Iron Lady,  wanted when she embraced them so much, in her very masculine-dominated world of politics.

Here are a few bows to add to your look, from pussy bow blouses, to bow shaped rings, it’s up to you how far you take the look.
