The Lovely Bows...

Designers went ultra-feminine this season, and placed bows everywhere. From oversized to tiny, they look playful on cocktail dresses, full skirts, jumpsuits, shoes, bags, and other accessories. In summer clothing, bows are found on necklines, the waist, the bustline, the hair, and the occasional shoulder.

Booked a time for costumes for the evening gent men then relegated to the rank of bauble for prepubertal midinettes, the bow tie has been some time now to regain trim fashion.
