Let’s be honest, keeping up with trends can be tricky. Fresh and new may feel exciting, but it’s important to proceed with caution. The truth – plenty should be left on the runway, and knowing what’s worth trying-out is hard.  Luckily bad fads fade, good ones cycle, and inevitably a classic is the “it” thing again. Suddenly an old style that we love is reimagined, and we get credit for being current when really we’re just staying the course. Timeless and tasteful fashion is built on these subtle statements, little things that pack a big punch. This year the experts agree, the MVP in the hair department is a beautiful bow.   Satin ribbons, silk cords and scarves, the best way to complete your look is to knot, tie, or trim your updo in pretty bows and romantic ribbons. Here are 8 fresh ways to pull it off like a grown-up.

    Hi! I noticed you credited Miss Bloom for that second image but it’s actually originally from Julia of Gal Meets Glam… Just thought you should know because it doesn’t look like Miss Bloom credited her.

    My favorite looks are definitely 1, 2 and 5. I love the skinny velvet hairbow, and also the loose silk bandana. So chic. Agree with Cynthia above – that’s definitely Gal Meets Glam.

    These look darling! But not in a childish sort of way! Prints do add a nice touch!

    These are all very romantic and just lovely! Here’s another take on the bow: somehow more quirky but still girly: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ActuallyKnot?ref=l2-shopheader-name
