14 Tie-Waist Tops Under $50

There are a dozen ways to wear tie-waist blouses beyond the retro, Rosie the Riveter look. Whichever way you style them, though, we'd suggest buying a relatively cheap one, since unlike certain classic outfit staples, tie-waist blouses are a challenge to wear year-round.

Still, for those few months when your objective shifts from aggressive layering to wearing as little as possible, tie-waist tops are sort of essential, since they'll let you show a sliver of midriff or bare arms while still looking polished. But whether you choose a grungey dip-dyed denim version or a chintzy wallpaper floral one, spend accordingly on your seasonal tie-waist blouse. (You might wear it every week for the next month and half, but come September you'll want those savings for knits, coats and other layering pieces that would just cover up its adorable tie detail anyway.)
