Trend: Take a Bow

Perhaps another Gossip Girl inspired fashion moment? Bows are nothing new, but they have been coming back to runways since Fall 2008 on both the Sportmax and Luella Runways. From oversize to tiny, stylized to soft/floppy bows look like they're here to stay. Satins, grosgrain, velvets and patent are the major materials. This look could be altered for different women: feminine and sweet like at Luella; prim and proper at Chanel; or dangerous and sexy at Christian Lacroix.

Looks for Luella Spring 2009. Notice floppy bows on hair accessories as well as apparel.

At ChloƩ Spring 2009, bows were both large and dramatic or small and perky.

At Chanel Spring 2009, A soft bow was used at the neck while more structured bows were used for shoes.

Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 used bows alongside contrasting materials and textures for shoes and body. I love the juxtaposition of the metal ankle chain with the plushness of multiple velvet bows.
