Trending: Bows & Blooms

An embellishment never goes astray when it comes to styling a look. A feather here, a sequin there - whatever it is we all sure do love a detail. The current detail we are loving? Bows and blooms. From big rosette details to ribbon inspired elements, bows and blooms are big, bold and they aren’t going away any time soon. What is it about these details we clearly simply adore? It may be the fact that they are perfectly feminine, delicate and oh so perfect for a wedding

A resemblance of a ribbon and a motif of a floral is the ultimate signal of dressing up. Nothing excites us more than seeing a sleek and simple gown with a bow sleeve at a black tie party or a floral printed dress at a garden wedding. Rather than let a corsage wilt in the warmer months, wear a fabric floral around your neck or across your dress, one that will last forever.

A Bow On Your Strap

Wear your heart on your sleeve, and a bow on your strap. A dress with a bow is oh so glam yet timeless at the same time. Enter the bow trend without going overboard by choosing a style that is sleek, smooth yet boasts a small statement to create an all eyes on you look. A one shoulder dress is a great way to do this, wear it with some simple drop earrings and a glam heel for the ultimate black tie look


The Rosette On Your Neck

The rosette trend is one we can’t stay away from. It is not only trendy but it adds an instant chic element to any outfit. Take your dress up a notch with a rosette detail. Halter neck dresses will draw the eye straight to any floral element, and they are the perfect silhouette for a garden party or a summer wedding


Romance Inspired By The Ribbon

Bows, ribbons and anything tied up with string, these are a few of our favourite things. Being inspired by a detail is another way to grasp onto a trend. If you aren’t wanting to go all the way there with a big bow you can find other ways to play with the bow trend. Get romantic with a sweetheart neckline, dresses with curved and contrasting off the shoulder necklines closely resemble the beauty of the bow.
