Nothing quite says sweet like an adorable hair bow. I remember having loads of them when I was little, but with today’s trends it’s nice to know you can still incorporate these hair accessories into your current wardrobe without looking too young or juvenile.
This featured Fashionista has smartly paired an oversized red bow with her look. The accessory draws focus to her face while acting as a finishing piece that completes her entire outfit. When I first saw her, I was so excited about her bow; I had yet to look at the rest of her ensemble which turned out to be equally as fun and youthful. Her sweater dress has a rose printed pattern in a velour fabric and scrunched sleeves. After speaking with her for a moment, I learned that she had acquired the dress at Goodwill and fashioned the dress into her own style by cutting off the turtleneck. Great idea! She matched the dress with a pair of leggings and black Peter Pan booties.
To recreate this Fashionista’s look, try picking up a bow from American Apparel. They offer a wide variety of colors and fabrics to choose from. While we most likely won’t be able to find the featured Fashionista’s exact dress, try looking online at Nasty Gal’s vintage selection. They tend to have a gorgeous selection of vintage goodies year round.
Hint: If you’re a little bit adventurous, try making your own bow to wear. Using fabric scraps from old clothes or remnants from a local fabric store, follow this tutorial for a one of a kind accessory.
