Bows, Bows, Bows!

 Thursday, July 12, 2012

Thank you to everyone who entered the Southern Tide Giveaway. The winner is Sierra!

When I posted about the trends for the summer I just brushed over my favorite styles. I wanted to dedicate this post to one of my favorite details, Bows!


Sequin dress / Cotton dress, $46 / Juicy Couture shirt / H&M printed shirt, $12 / Sheer blouse / RED Valentino wool blend coat, $885 / Alexis Mabille short skirt / Miu Miu high heels / Flat / Palazzo Bruciato flat sandals / Fendi shoes / Lulu Guinness leather handbag, $320 / Chain necklace / Miso stud earrings, $7.75 / River Island enamel jewelry, $6.20 / Lipsy bow earrings, $4.65 / Ribbon scarve, $7.67 / See by Chloé bow belt, $69 / Hair clip accessory / Pretty Bow Hair Pins, $10

Bows do make outfits look younger so my question is:

Is there an age in which bows look too juvenile? Personally I believe that there are sophisticated bows appropriate for even corporate environments but I want to know what you think!

I have nothing with a bow!

Bows are adorable! I have tons of flats with bows on them. Love all the bow necklaces and jewelry as well.

I don't think that there's an age where bows look too juvenile. They're such a fashion statement right now that anyone can get away with wearing them!

Love bows! Just not sure I could pull it off...

Bows are adorable. Some people look better in them than others. I don't think I can pull it off, though.

When I see this, I think of Annie Hall. Diane Keaton is definitely quirky, and she can still pull it off.

I have a blouse with a bow... and about your question I think bows looks perfect in all the womens, old or young, doesn´t matter, is super classic and chic, what we have to take care is about the size, the fabric and color, mayte bows style too... However, is classic, so is always wearable...
kisses dear!

I love bows, and if you embrace it I think you can wear them at any age! I love those flats, Modcloth has the cutest stuff!

I love bows! I think than can be worn at any age as long as it's tasteful and more toned down!

Vicky July 12, 2012 at 1:46 PM  

I love bows in all the clothes and accessories. Great selection! Kisses :)

Sarah July 12, 2012 at 2:52 PM  

I wear a bow everyday, at least somewhere on my outfit:)

Beautiful blog!
My sorority big sister and I had the "big girl bow" conversation recently. As a girl who is a HUGE fan of the HUGE bow, it's something I've definitely wondered. I could get away with it at undergrad when it was "my thing", but now that I am attending grad school somewhere new, I've toned it down quite a bit. I think you can rock a bow in any setting, but what kind of bow depends on your environment! Love this post!

I love bows, especially the earrings, bangle, and ring by Kate Spade in gold. There are instances when bows can look juvenile, but I think there are also bows that can look quite sophisticated when done right, and done in moderation.

I have always LOVED bows! Our little girl will be a total bowhead from birth :)

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog today!

As for bows...I think you CAN outgrown them for hair, but not clothing {save for on one's bum...hee!}.

Alexis July 12, 2012 at 6:40 PM  

I love bows! I think they can make any outfit more girly!

I am such a bow lover, bow-ties, on blouses, etc. I love that photo of the plaid bow above.

Bows are ageless! Just the other day I wore a bow headband and got so many compliments. They can be worn on and with a lot of things and I think they make an outfit more chic. I fell in love with those turquoise ballet flats.

Love bows!! And no I don't think anyone would be too young to wear a bow, it is really a matter where you place it or how you style ;) I am your newest follower, stay in touch <3

I think bows can look great at any age - just that the size and colour are the biggest issue to making sure it doesn't look juvenile!
