DIY: Beauty Bows
Bows are back! Making a comeback all the way from your childhood, these girlish accessories are now carving a sophisticated and edgy couture path. The Golden Globes displayed a bounty of satin and beaded bows cinching off waists on superstar gowns. The beautiful bow transcended the detail department into romantic hair and neck accessories, like Michelle Williams’ velvety bow choker and Sienna Miller’s playful high pony tail rendition.  Beyond the sweet, these on-trend attachments are finding a rock-n-roll vibe in leathered choker bows and super chic cuffs.I gathered up an assortment of these stylish afterthoughts to help adorn your wardrobe. And, if you’re feeling extra creative, dive in below and DIY with an easy-to-make homemade bow choker.

Do It Yourself:
What you’ll need:
-A spool of your preferred ribbon. Velvet, lace, leather, and metallic ribbons are all on-trend options. Amazon has a wide selection like this Housweety Velvet Ribbon ($3)
-matches or a lighter
How to:
Cut your ribbon to your desired length. You can opt for a shorter strand bow to use as a wrist cuff or create a long flowing strand neck choker by using a 24-inch piece and letting the strands drape delicately down the neckline.
Lightly singe the end of the ribbon over an open flame to tie off loose ends and keep the bow from fraying.
Wrap around the neck, tie into a bow, and you’re good to go!
