Trend Report: Flirty Bows
Get ready to stash all you’re jeweled and braided headbands and ditch your fedoras and berets until fall. This year’s spring fashion collections proved that bows will be the must-have accessory this season. From Marc by Marc Jacobs to Marchesa, designers are using bows to add color, make statements and give their clothes a pretty feminine touch. But forget the delicate clips your mom put in your pigtails when you were five – these bows are big, over-the-top, and will perfectly complete any outfit.
My Top Three Picks:
1. Check out Urban Outfitter’s Feather Bow Bobby Pins ($14.00) for something edgy but still feminine. I love the fact that you can layer these up and make a totally unique hairstyle with a few simple twists or braids.
2. Retro 80’s fan? For something a little more funky, get Forever 21’s Leopard Pop Headband in Blue, $3.80.
3. Talk about versatile – for something different, slip on American Apparel’s The Sash ($18.00) to add attitude to your favorite outfit. You can wear it in your hair, as a belt, or as a neck tie.
