I Like Big Bows and I Cannot Lie…..


Is there anything cuter than delicate, dainty bows that often have adorned our school uniforms, our loosely tied hair or even the toe caps our favourite ballerinas? Bows have an immediate charm that makes your outfits 10 times cuter without any effort. Imagine now bows are coming back in trend; get ready for all the cute outfits that you can rock this season.

Go through the latest collections by Emilia Wickstead, and you will find a plethora of ways in which a bow, no matter how big or small, can become a star of your outfit. She has accessorised hair with multiple bows for a sophisticated look. Her dresses have featured huge to small bows, a number of times. She has styled sweaters and scarves in the shape of a bow around the neck. She has even launched hair accessories in the form of dramatic caps and hats that feature bows as their highlights. Deepika Padukone was also seen speaking to the press at Cannes in one of her bow dresses.

In January this year, Clare Waight Keller’s third Givenchy collection saw the models on the runway embellished in dresses that seemed to feature huge bows at their back. But wait! Only the bows were not protruding from the dress, but from the backpacks, the models were carrying with them. These gorgeous bags were the highlights of her collection as these have since then inspired a lot of dresses and accessories to be accentuated with big bows.

Apart from her Emilia Wickstead dress, Deepika’s red carpet black-and-white dress by Peter Dundas and her floral dress by Erdem also featured big bows, ticking off her approval on the trend this season. At Cannes, the Elie Saab dress worn by Sonam Kapoor at the press event, also saw a huge bow sitting at her shoulder. The Celia Kritharioti dress worn by Diana Penty, at Cannes, also featured that big bow on the shoulder. So, no one needs to do trend analysis to declare those bows as the big trend of this season.

Apart from these, Miu Miu, Chanel, Versace, Prada, and Giambattista Valli are the designers who have beautifully incorporated intricate bows in the outfits in their latest collections, among others.
