So this post title may seem a little silly, we’ll give you that. However, if you’ve been following along with the past few NYFWs, you’ll know that bows have actually been slowly coming back into style. From Chanel’s show last winter to what we’ve seen this past winter, we can truly say that bows are BACK! And, better yet, there’s a way to go about wearing them so that you don’t have to look like a kid again (it can be a very difficult balance!). Let’s browse some examples, shall we?
No one wear a bow quite like Mrs. Julia Engel, who rocks one in at least one of her posts a week (clearly not complaining about that!). She has endless ideas on how to style them over on her blog, Gal Meets Glam, but we particularly love when she styles them with a curly ponytail. As shown here, the bows don’t necessarily need to be large and plastic or loose and ribbon-like, they work in every shape, size, and style!
Adding a bow to an updo can make your hairstyle look more complicated, when really it’s just one added step! We promise, it’s easier than it looks! Even though it may not look like it, all of these braids have a bow tied (or placed in the case of the top right) directly around them. So although the bottom two look a lot trickier, it’s still just tying a bow!
We love how versatile the half-up style is! Each of these photos has a different option for you! Which is your favorite?
