What a difference a bow makes. (The first one up there from the Mochino spring/summer collection was just to get your attention.)
Even the least frou-frou among us can see the merits of a soft, floppy scarf tied as a bow. If one is so inclined masses of baubles can be layered on top with the wings of the bow set free above.
It's another one of those hide-and-trick the eye maneuvers we all so dearly love: "Look at my radiant visage. Neck(?) Chin(?) I don't know what you're talking about." Voila it's a miracle.
Bows you might consider and bows you wouldn't be caught dead in, from the top: Mochino as I said; Coco Chanel as you've probably never seen her before in a carelessly bowed something-or-other at the neck of her white shirt ; two softies from Christian Lacroix; a great idea from Sonia Rykiel, a man's bow-tie with the complicated bits firmly in place; a fun, funny prim hat right out of the '50s from Luella and a rigid, will never come undone headband from Givenchy.
