All Tied Up…Hot Trend: Big Bow Details

Any way you tie it, bows are making their way into every detail for pre-fall fashion ensembles. From 1970′s-inspired frilly neck tops (like Miley’s plaid variety) to big 1980′s prom dress inspired bows like on Molly Sims and V-Becks, these girly details are truly divine.

The truly daring can pair a frilly neck top with high-waist pants and open toe booties for a seriously fierce office ensemble. And if you are feeling extra saucy, then go for the big satiny bow effect and look for cocktail dresses with a halter neckline and a bow tie at the back, or even a more retro style like on Molly Sims.

If you’re not so sure you are ready to look like a blast from the past, then check out these bowed beauties to get a taste of this trend in a more subtle way:

Betsey Johnson Bow Bangle Watch, $75.00

The perfect accessory to give a menswear look a more feminine feel.

Leather Mini Bow Bag, $29.99

The perfect way to wear this bag: sugar and spice. Pair this uber girly purse with fierce gladiator sandals and a leather (or latex) mini.


Lela Rose for Payless “Peggy” Wedge Sandal, $30.00

My personal favorite, this slingback peep-toe wedge sandal is both timeless and trendy. Worn with a vintage-style flowery dress or to add a little sweetness to a menswear look, this shoe is both versatile and fun.


Escada Mini Houndstooth Bow Dress, $1,690.00

Unfortunately, I have to pay the old mortgage this month, otherwise this dress would be in my closet right now. Feel free to send me one in a size 10. Thanks.
