The Bow.

Bows are as old as the hills, used in fashion to embellish and accessorise for centuries. Understandably so, they’re elegant, decadent and currently more prominent than ever with many designers featuring them in their collections.

The dress pictured from GCDS is a perfect example, the bow being an integral part of the dress.

The great thing about accessories is that they are perfect for exaggerated details and embellishments, allowing you to add drama to an outfit when you want it and take it away when you don’t. These dramatic bow sandals from Loewe being a great example.
