Autumn's Biggest Trend... And What You Can Do About It

Bows, bows, bows! If you’ve been paying any attention to fashion the last couple of months, you know that bows are in and they're ruling the runways and the streets in a major way.
Bows have long been a marker of youthful femininity – we all remember wearing bows to a pre-school friend's birthday party, right? But a run-through of this season’s runways showed that bows aren’t just for little girls anymore. Silky bows have been made sultry, and strong silhouettes have been embellished with large minimalistic bows. Outside of the runways, the street-style scene proved that this chic trend is not only here to stay, but wearable as well. So, before you go running in the other direction, take note: this fad is actually quite easy to wear... First, when wearing a tie neck blouse, keep the rest of your outfit simple, so it doesn’t look like you’re wearing a costume. To see how it’s done right, check out how these stylish ladies are rocking the trend below, then shop some of our favourite styles further down the page...
Pussy bow shirts are the epitome of styling nonchalance. Wear them open (read: unfussy)...

If the French can do it, you can too!
