We've seen a growing trend popping up on our instagram feeds- grown women wearing girly hair accessories! It's one of my favorite trends in years... so much so that I decided to open up my own online bow shop! [bonjourbobby.com]
The accessories are playful and fun, and can add a major pop to a simple outfit. But it can be tricky to wear them without looking childish, so here are my tips! [video here]
1- The Fabric
Look for more MATURE fabrics- like Velvet, Linen, Leather, Chiffon or Satin. These more grown up fabrics bring the level of sophistication up and are more age appropriate.
2- Prints & Patterns
Avoid shopping in the little girl sections of the store for your wares... rainbows, unicorns, and sparkles should be left to the little ones. Instead opt for patterns that are classic and timeless- think stripes, polka dots, plaids, and paisley.
3- Style them carefully
It's important to avoid bow placement that looks too young- the places we see you girls wear bows are typically near the front of the face or on the top of the head. Instead 'hide' the bows slightly so that they aren't front and center in your style. Behind the head, or on the base of a ponytail or bun are great places to add your accessories.
4- When in doubt, keep it small
If you like the idea of adding an accessory, but hesitate- start with smaller pieces, like decorative elastics or smaller scrunchies. Avoid the LARGE pieces and you'll feel more comfortable with this trend.
