TA DA! The humble bow gets a GIANT makeover this season - the perfect accent to compliment a dramatic entrance (think Liza Doolittle in the "My Fair Lady" Ascot scene).
Like the "cherry on top" of the sundae, or the punctuation at the end of a great sentence, 'The Bow' rules. Bows make us smile or instinctively focus our attention so its not surprising many of the most memorable looks from the recent shows featured this classic fashion staple - reinterpreted.
From Maison Margiela, to Valentino to Dice Kayek, AW/18 runway models were elegantly gift-wrapped. Big, bold and bright poofs worn askew at the neck or languid strips of chiffon or silk ribbons - sculptural or free flowing - these knots of fabric were SUPERSIZED.
Now, if sporting a bow the size of a cantaloupe is not your thing, no worries, you can still be on trend -add a touch of 'bow-tastic' by accessorizing with a knot inspired clutch or look for pared down details on sleeves and collars (see more here).
Just remember, a strong bow needs to stands alone -so keep any other accessories (including makeup) simple and Love-the-Knot!
