Fashion Trends: Bows


We hesitated to call bows a "Trend" because they tend to be around in some form or another most of the time, but there’s no denying that they’re around more than ever at the moment, attached to everything from shoes and boots to, er, knickers. This is a look that can go from super-cute to sickeningly twee in the blinking of an eye, if you’re not careful how you wear it, but we reckon most of the pieces in the picture above will let you wear the trend without looking too much like an explosion in a bow factory. Just don’t wear them all at the same time…
