Bow Knows (See Jane Tie One Up)

Now that I'm in my mid-twenties, I need to be more mindful about experimenting with certain trends. Bows are one of them. Yes, they look adorable on the runway...

...but somehow I don't see that translating very well in my everyday life. Can you imagine the horrified looks I'd receive walking into my office wearing a bow headdress?

In honor of Easter tomorrow and as a homage to all the bows (and ruffle socks with patent leather Mary Janes) I wore to church growing up, here are some adult versions of the bow trend.

I have a feeling I'd wear this dress way more places than the beach.
