There’s nothing like a giant bow to jazz up an outfit. Olivia Colman can attest to that. Gracing the red carpet and the stage at the 2019 Oscars, aside from her heartwarming speech, her custom Prada gown also caught our eye. Her emerald green dress with a silk organza cape tied with a giant bow at the back was nothing short of spectacular, and took a team of eight 300 hours for the embroidery alone.
YahooOversized bows are predicted to be a big trend this year, according to Vogue, who reported on a range of shapes and sizes at the Spring/Summer 2019 shows including Valentino, Dries Van Noted and Miu Miu to name a few. While bows are nothing new, how we’re wearing them has had an update. No longer small and delicate, they’re the new sartorial statement. Here are the high street bows we’re obsessed with.
