The soft colors of autumn replace the bright variegation of summer and bring with them a change of image. However, modern fashion is so democratic that it allows any experiments, even if the main trends suggest otherwise. Do you want to look catchy and even aggressive in the middle of the quiet whiteness of a winter day - for God's sake!
And yet, the tendencies of the coming autumn-winter season speak of a clear softening of morals. Haute couture is obviously drifting towards romanticism and soft femininity. Instead of sexuality, sensuality is preached, instead of harsh eroticism, sentimentality. Hence the choice of many ways to emphasize the main mood of the season.
Naturally, the look of a romantic young lady will be defective in the absence of bows in any form. This detail adored by women of all times and peoples is able to turn the most ordinary dress into an exquisite masterpiece, completely update your look and give a funny shade to the image of the harshest business woman.
Suffice it to recall the wife of Nikita Mikhalkov, whose impeccable taste is well known. As, however, and her image with a permanent black bow on her head. And at the same time there is not a grain of sugary sweetness, pretentiousness, pretentiousness. Everything is very organic and worthy of imitation.
That is why, probably, in the fashionable collections of the season there are so many elegant things, quite suitable for a business woman in any guise - a graduate student, a student of a serious university, an office manager, a trade consultant, an enterprise manager, a teacher.
For example, the collection from Bill Blass is filled with such sentiments. Tiny elegant bows made of black silk or moire ribbons turn out to be appropriate in the most unexpected places - for example, on the neckline of white blouses under tiny collars with rounded corners or on thin belts.
By the way, a thin (but rather tough and dense) dark ribbon instead of a belt is today used by many designers and at the same time tied with a very refined, small, almost modest (and therefore convenient and acceptable for any setting) bow. This can be seen in collections from Valentino, Oscar de lRent and many other fans of the style of elegance.
However, it can be used in a variety of ways. The easiest way is to just tie this ribbon instead of a belt on a straight or slightly fitted dress, as well as on a blouse, jacket, cardigan made of thin knitted fabric. But it is much more interesting if you thread this ribbon into the drawstring, leaving just a flirty bow in sight, or thread the ribbon through the harness of tweed trousers in a man's style.
But nevertheless, the bow is, first of all, belonging to the romantic style. Hence all the variety of its application. Indeed, by and large, a bow is the detail that, as a rule, has no practical functional value, but is intended only to "make us beautiful."
The romantic style assumes light flowing or sliding fabrics, laces, sheer inserts, fancy patterns, skirts enveloping the legs with well-draped pleats, various frills, ruffles and frills, folds and draperies, pleats and corrugations. All corners in clothes should be rounded, which goes well with soft voluminous bows.
In the arsenal of the romantic style, soft airy shawls, artificial flowers, a neckline in frills and ruffles, an accentuated waistline (which, however, can be significantly raised under the chest in the Empire style), lace bodices, scarves made of gauze and silk: And all this is also in this season easily merges into a harmonious image, decorated with a cute bow.
For example, Betsey Johnson decorates the bodice of a small sky-blue Empire-style cocktail dress with a voluminous bow, Marc Jacobs puts satin bows on the neckline of the blouse, belt or also on the corsage in the neckline, and Valentino decorates the jackets of colored silk with tiny satin bows, which are proposed to be worn with plain white blouses or straight, one-piece mini dresses.
It is bows that help to bring a bit of romanticism into other styles. For example, a completely Americanized youth fashion, which is practical and comfortable with the use of denim, knitted fabric and simple universal things, starts to play in a completely new way with the addition of flirty details like bows.
Grab a printed silk skirt, high-top cowboy boots or high-laced boots, a graffiti jersey T-shirt and a small safari denim vest (all by D&G) for a completely recognizable look. And now add a silk or satin bow of the most delicate color - peach, pearl, pink, blue - instead of a belt to the skirt, instead of a vest fastener, to the neckline of a knitted T-shirt. And a completely different accent will appear.
And if you want to play a little naughty, then you should think about making the bow more puffy, and it is located in the most unusual place. This season can be considered as such: the back. Rather, its very bottom, which can still be considered quite decent.
For example, in the collection from Herrer it is proposed to simply turn the belt over in order to tie it not in the front, but in the back - and on the most lush bow. And in the collection from Chloe, a huge bow with lush long ends is playfully placed right above the top line of the buttocks. Sitting, of course, is uncomfortable, but the attention of all those present at the party is guaranteed to you.
