beauty trend to try -- bows.

ATTAINABLE: ASOS A Wear Lace Peplum Top; $59.61 
Although peplums are hardly new on the scene, I can't help but be totally enamored by this pretty little top.  I love the lace overlay and the little cap sleeves are so ladylike.  The pleating detail at the neckline adds an extra level of visual interest, and the peplum, as far as I'm concerned, is just icing on the cake.  This would be fantastic for work with a white pencil skirt and pumps or for play with skinny jeans and boots.

I've always loved bows: there's something so precise and sweet about them.  While I'll never turn down a pretty patent belt with bow detail or a bow-shaped piece of jewelry, I'm always looking for new, sophisticated ways to incorporate them into my looks.  Enter: the hair bow.  I love that autumn's take on this look is so chic and not at all schoolgirl-esque thanks to dark colors, messy hair, and inventive usage.
