ALL IN THE DETAILS: Bodacious Bows

Hair bows used to be a hair accessory worn by little girls running around the playground; however, nowadays we are seeing the bow detail incorporated into all aspects of clothing. A bow adds an element of elegance to an outfit that can take a simple piece of clothing to a statement outfit.

This Fashionista is wearing a sophisticated spring outfit complete with a bow detail. From the front, this white chiffon shirt flows nicely and contrasts against a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. However, when this Fashionista turns around, there is a large scoop on the back of her shirt with a large bow detail encompassing the entire back of the shirt. The bow detailing on the back transforms this shirt from ordinary to a regal-inspired piece. Adding to her elegant look, this Fashionista paired a bold necklace to add dimension to the front of the shirt. Five large diamonds fall against the white shirt, which creates a feature focus that has a bit of sparkle, too. Finally, this Fashionista finished off her look with a pair of tan wedge booties. A simple pair of booties like these is perfect for running around campus while still keeping your outfit trendy and chic.

Of course, no look is totally done without the perfect shade of bright red lipstick. This Fashionista rocked a bold lip, adding a pop of color to her classy look. Wearing a statement piece, like a shirt with bow, and adding bold accents to brighten it up can take an ordinary outfit and make it one that has a unique and chic feel.

How To: Looking for a way to add a bit of flare to your wardrobe? Try choosing a shirt that has a large bow detail on it, whether it is in the front or back, and pair it with a simple piece, such as skinny jeans, to allow the shirt to be the focus. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try the bow style more creatively and wear an oversized bow in your hair or try a bow featured scarf. Whatever style you may choose, a bow accent is a great way to make your outfit both playful and trendy.
