6 Totally Grown Up Ways to Wear a Bow

Bows often make us think of childhood memories. These were the cute and dainty little things that used to adore our hairs, out clothes, out accessories and everything else we used to wear when we were little. Now that we’re all grown up, you might think that bows are no longer appropriate for us to wear but that’s not true at all. You can still wear bows as much as you like, you just have to know how to differentiate cute and tacky. Here are some amazing and totally grown up ways to wear a bow without looking like you’re trying to be five again.

  1. ON YOUR HAIR ACCESSORIES – if you can’t get yourself to pull off the hair bow hairstyle as neatly and beautifully as you would like, you can always opt to have bows on your hair the old-fashioned way and that is to have bows on your hair accessories like your headband, scrunchies, clips and what not. The key to pulling this off with a grown-up vibe is to choose pieces with bows that are as small and simple as possible.bow clip bow headband blair waldorf
