Bows and Belles…it's a girl thing! We absolutely loved getting to work with the beautiful Elle Spann and her adorable bow creations! A bow can be worn many different ways and is  the perfect accent to your outfit. Southern Elle designs customizes bow ties and bows for any occasion…and the best part? Men AND Women can pull it off! Each bow is handcrafted with love and care by this Gem and we could not wait to share her designs with you guys! We styled the bows several ways to give you gals various looks to work with.

Since Nika's cremé colored bow is an understated color, she went for a bright and colorful skirt as a statement piece. Full skirts are a forever favorite. Crop tops work well as a pair for high-waisted skirts proportionally. Along with the crop top, Nika kept her pointed toe pumps a classic white to draw attention to the skirt. To top off the look, she added her favorite gold chain necklace that matches well with almost any outfit. It's always good to have a versatile piece in your jewelry box for an easy go-to. Can't forget the beloved "sister bracelet"!

Bianca is a vision in white...and a pop of pink! She applied the crop top to high-waist ratio "rule" to her look, except she chose a very cool pair of slouchy white pants. The pop of pink stands out in a crowd and provides a bright crisp color palette to draw the eye towards the main attraction: the oh-too-adorable green + blue anchor bow. Bianca decided to add a bit of texture and golden magic to her outfit by wearing her new favorite metallic loafers. Last but certainly not least, she added the "sister bracelet" for a sprinkle of Dollhouse pizazz!
