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.
