We know what you're thinking—bows are not a new trend, by any means. Well, take a breath and let us explain. It's not necessarily the bows themselves that we are referring to; it's their placement. We first caught wind of this innovative take on the classic adornment when Simon Porte Jacquemus of Jacquemus dreamed up sweaters, T-shirts, and blazers all held together by handfuls of oversize bows (see street style image above). Their placement was unique and remarkably unexpected. If there was ever a time to say "love at first sight," it would be now.
Since that monumental blue-ribbon (pun intended) moment, bows have been popping up left and right on items ranging from denim to dresses. Whether these adorably feminine add-ons appear in more than one place per item or make one large statement somewhere striking, this simple addition elevates whatever it is you're wearing in seconds flat. This is definitely one of those trends you have to see to believe, which is why we rounded up the best bow-clad items on the market, all for you.
