Trend Alert: Ribbons and Bows

Here's a trend that's easy to tie on: Luscious ribbons in rich colors and materials, fashioned into big, graceful bows. Girly lace and ribbon accents are huge this fall, and now bows are showing up on everything from dresses to tops to shoes and purses. It's a great look for pretty dinner parties and holiday gatherings and an easy way to dress up an otherwise simple look. Here's a look at some of our favorite finds.

3.1 Phillip Lim Silk Tea Dress, $530, available here.

Gap Peep-Toe Bow Wedge, $48, available here.

For more picks and other ideas for how to use ribbons,

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Candie Gray Platform Pumps, $395, available here.

Emma Gordon London Granite Grace Bag, $80, available here.

Corey Lynn Calter Meadowlark Blouse, $148, available here.

Other ideas for accessorizing with ribbons:

  • Tie a thick satin sash around your waist with jeans and a girly blouse.
  • Weave a ribbon into a long chain necklace and tie a bow at the bottom.
  • Tie an embroidered ribbon around your neck and wear it as a choker, or tie a bow on your wrist as a bracelet.

Just my opinion, but I find that bows are not the least bit stylish or chic. They are best left for little girls.

It is also a great idea to get ribbon from the fabric store to use as a headband. It averages $2 per headband which is cheaper than anything you would find at Claires (which is crap anyways).
