Inspired by Elle Creative Director Joe Zee’s 26 favorite fall trends, we’re bringing you a great trend every day, from A to Z.
T is for Tied Up—but not the naughty kind. No, this trend is all about the girlish bow, a look that lies at the opposite end of the style spectrum from this season’s fetish fashion.
As one might expect, the brand that wrote the book on ladylike, Milly, has a strong showing in this category. Witness their pretty-yet-polished Polka Dot Bow Print Cummerbund Dress (pictured), and the festive, neo-flapper Bow Shift Dress.
Of course Marc Jacobs puts his own stamp on the bow, bringing us an avant-garde bracelet (pictured), while Juicy takes the season’s de rigueur fingerless gloves (pictured) into feminine territory by bedecking them with not one but two bows. For those of you who don't think the words “demure” and “thong” belong together? Hanky Panky begs to differ, offering a sweet, bow-trimmed version of their signature style.
