Head to toe this look has one feature that stands out: the bow. In stores this summer all you’re going to see are pieces with statement bows. This trend can be intimidating to some but its functionality is what will make it a staple in your closet.
My favorite thing in the world is a top with character. I styled this billowy bow top with vintage Levi jeans and my white booties that I can’t stop wearing. To control the bold striped pattern, heavy ruffled sleeve and volume of this top I tied the bow around my waist so that I don’t get lost in all this material.
A bow top is versatile and can by styles with trousers, shorts or a mini skirt- just keep an eye on the symmetry and balance of your outfit, too many power pieces will make your look distracting. Stick to one stand out piece if you’re only beginning to mix and match. The wrap around, long tie bow can be styled so many different ways: but no matter what it will always make a statement.
