8 Ways to Wear Bows ...

I think a pretty bow is a great finishing touch to a girlie outfit, but there are so many times I’ve seen bows go wrong. The wrong bow on the wrong top, dress, shoe, bag, or accessory can just look silly, but on the other hand, the right bow on the right bag looks great! Here are 8 ways to wear bows…

1. Flurry up Top

Don’t let the sheer chiffon bow on this blouse fool you — it’s anything but demure and soft-spoken. Add black cigarette pants and red heels (and matching lipstick) and you’ll see that this soft, sheer blouse is actually very chic and rather fetching. Or add yellow accessories and enjoy the compliments you’re sure to receive!

2. Cherry Soda Bag

This slouchy, scrunchy bag is my favorite color — red! I adore the perky bow on the front, and of course the convenience of the adjustable strap (so I could wear it as a cross-body bag). I’d wear this with anything grey or black, and watch it pop!

3. Bow so Sweet Headband

I have green eyes, so I take every chance I get to wear a green bow in my hair. And this bow is darling, perched along the side of a thin headband, and fastened with a faux-leather belt and brass buckle. The bow is wired, so you can shape it as loose or as formally as you’d like!

4. Stud-dy as She Bows Bracelet

Choose from inky black or pale pink, both of these bow-bedecked faux leather bracelets are just as chic! They both feature a row of shiny pyramid studs and two snaps to fasten it (for a perfect fit) and both would add just a touch of sass to any outfit!

5. Not Bow-Ring

Of course you’re anything but dull or boring, so why should you wardrobe and accessories be, either? Add this sparkling, gorgeous ring to any outfit, and prepared to be noticed. Is it the rows of glittering rhinestones and pearls, or the sweet bow shape? Or both? Does it matter?

6. Today I Met the Perfect Boot

If one bow is good, a trio of them is terrific! And these adorable inky-black ankle boots have six in total, three on each boot. Pair with patterned tights and a sequined mini, or with super-skinny jeans and a retro-inspired tunic.

7. Sentimental Journey Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $44.99 at modcloth.com
The chic in this dress is all in the details — the gorgeous brown color, the flattering drapey neckline, the single-tie shoulder, the tan straw and faux-leather bow-bedecked belt. Pair with strappy sandals and an armload of blue baubles… gorgeous!

8. Hello, Snazzy Style Necklace

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $29.99 at modcloth.com
Why not borrow some style from the original bow-wearer of our generation, Hello Kitty herself? This adorable red enamel bow by Loungefly dangles delightfully from a silver-tone chain, and would look darling with a floral-print dress, or even skinny jeans, and white tunic, and red boots.

So cute! So stylish! See what a few little bows can do? And not one of these bow-bedecked items looks at all childish, just sweet and chic! Which of these ways would you wear a bow? Or is there another a-bow-rable item you like more? Please share!
