Bows have always been a feature of anything cute or romantic but don’t go down the little bow peep route. Think elegant and couture with heavy satin, fine detailing. Bows are great for drawing attention to the parts of your body you love and away from the parts you don’t. Accentuate waists with a side bow on an empire line dress or add detail to the back and dress up shoes with funky bowties. Or if you’re really brave, go huge like Charlize Theron’s Oscar gown.
