Bows are no longer just for the frill-seekers. The Spring 2012 runways — namely Miu Miu, Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, and Carven — have proven that these sweetly twisted knots are the perfect flirty accent for any serious style-setter. To this point, it's less about the overtly girlie Little Bo Peep fluff and more about the subtle ways in which we can show off a romantic detail without going overboard. From bow-infused clutches to silky tie-front blouses, it's easy to incorporate this ladylike offshoot into your day-to-day wardrobe. Whether you find inspiration straight from the catwalk or look to celebs like Emily Blunt, seen in cool Gianvito Rossi bow-tie pumps, and Sarah Jessica Parker, who recently wore a Spring '02 Louis Vuitton frock cinched with a bow sash, there's certainly a happy styling medium for the bow-inclined.
