Accessories Report

I briefly mentioned last week how bows make for cute accessories, and this Fashionista definitely proves that with her adorable bow-shaped necklace and striped hair bow. These accessories, in addition to the hearts on her sweater and scalloped collar, show her girly sense of style. I like how her combat boots balance the feminine touches in her outfit though to keep it from being too cutesy.

Bows can make for a great hair accessory when worn with the right thing like in this Fashionista’s case. American Apparel has a great selection of bows in a variety of bright colors and crazy patterns. Try using one as a way to mix and match patterns within your outfit or wear one with all black to let the bow stand out. Still don’t think hair bows are your kind of accessory? Try a bow headband instead. Go preppy and channel your inner Blair Waldorf with this striped headband from Nordstrom, or go for a more bohemian vibe with this velvet one from TOBI.

Other than her bow accessories, this Fashionista’s footwear is on-point. The wool socks not only probably keep her feet really warm, but they also look trendy when slightly pulled above her boots. I personally love these tribal boot socks by HUE because they look cute with boots and on their own.

Spotted: Ribbons tied into bows on the heads of runway models wearing Nina Ricci‘s and Balenciaga‘s spring 2014 ready-to-wear collections. Read about bows being the most versatile hair accent of the season at Vogue‘s website.
