If you have kids, you likely know this is a Wiggles reference. We watch Wiggles almost every day with Ruby, so I couldn’t help myself.
I am going to show you three ways to be “bow”tiful – aka accessorize with a simple ribbon. It’s a really simple way to make an item in your closet feel fresh again.
ONE: Use a ribbon to tie a small bow around a blouse. Here I am wearing a collarless blouse but it looks great on a collared blouse too. I like to use a long ribbon so the ends flow pretty long. You can also try it with a more narrow ribbon for a more understated look.
TWO: In this next look I wanted to add a little drama to my outfit. I started with a pair of skinny leather pants and an oversized sweater – a pretty basic look. Then I added a statement necklace and tied the ribbon to the back of the necklace taking a basic outfit to something that could work for a night out.
THREE: Lastly, I used the ribbon as a choker, tying a bow at the back leaving long strands flowing. I wore it with a black dress so it looked like part of the dress. But it would work with a dress or tee of a contrasting colour too. A white dress with a black ribbon would look super cool. I also like this look best with a v-neck. A thicker choker with a round neck can feel a little busy.
