Big In 2023, Bigger In 2024: Bows Are Everywhere In Women’s Fashion

Has everyone noticed the latest in women’s fashion? Bows are now trending. It’s not your imagination. Everyone’s wearing a bow or making the bow work in 2024. The fashion runways have models adorned with this particular fashion accessory.

Why among all the fashion accessories that could make a comeback, it’s the bow that returned? No one can say. Regardless, you can’t deny it’s popping off and it’s not something quaint you outfit a child with anymore.

Girlishness Embraced Anew

Bows are popping out everywhere from dresses to hairclips and fashion accessories. They’re the neat little bow on the gift that keeps on giving, in a sense.

  • Lines Up with Current Trends: The current trends today in 2024 are all about pencil skirts, halter tops or halternecks, and muted colors with striking black, white, or red accents. The bow simply works along with the rest of these clothing and accessory fashion trends, like a good shoe tying up a whole outfit.
  • Pink is the New Black: Despite womenswear fashion designers expressing their existential angat in their designs, they also value affirmations and embracing femininity once more. This has led to the rise of pink everything (like bows), such that pink rather than orange is the new black.
  • Why the Rise in Femininity? Like with any other trend, it all roots from pop culture. The Barbie movie was a relatively recent billion-dollar hit in 2023, so much so that its feminist satire struck a chord in many young women who wish to emulate the more positive aspects of the doll brand.
  • A Celebration of Women and Womanhood: Aside from Barbie helping inspire women to embrace femininity more, there’s also a rising fashion movement in balletcore along with Barbie-inspired girlish fashion that’s all about the bows.
  • Coquette Makeup is All About the Bow: While surely sporting coquettish or flirty grins while on their hot dates, 2024 women are also indulging in “coquette makeup”, of which the hair bow or dresses filled with bows work as a perfect harmonious complement to it.
  • The Female Bow: Everything from shoes to skirts to half-slips to undergarments have fun little bows on them in 2024 fashion as girls discover empowerment by being feminine and female while loving girlish things from their nostalgic past like dolls, ponies, and cute bows.

Tying Everything on a Neat Bow

Despite fashion expressing the ennui felt by society nowadays, particularly by women who’ve seen political horror stories involving the LGBTQ community, POCs, and what had happened to Roe vs. Wade in the United States, it has also embraced the feminine side of women’s fashion as well.

Instead of going for the androgyny of the 1980s or the rebelliousness of the 1990s, the youth of today are nostalgic for Turn of the Millennium Gothic fashion mixed with a rediscovery of classic girlish styles.
