Bows on Sloane

The cutest bow accessories to wear this season

1 February 2024

We can’t open Instagram without seeing pretty bows everywhere at the moment – they’re embellishing candles, wine glasses, dresses, bags and everything in between. And while they’re certainly having a moment (and are perfect for Valentine’s Day dates), the classic adornment is never far from fashion runways. So what better reason to invest in a few select accessories to, ahem, tie your look together now and in the future? Here, we’ve detailed our favourites from Sloane Street.

Anya Hindmarch is Chelsea’s OG bow advocate – one makes up her logo. Hindmarch’s satin bow clutch bag is a long-standing piece in her collection and frequently sells out thanks to its enduring wearability. It is an excellent choice for nights out or big events. There’s also the designer’s ‘Neeson’ line, which features the bow subtly woven in leather or raffia and is ideal for those wanting to tap into the trend without going all-out.

Francophiles will adore Dior’s très chic houndstooth beret, which is detailed on the back with a shimmery satin bow and the brand’s embroidered moniker. It also comes in neutral black or beige and is guaranteed to level up any outfit, no matter how simple. Another maison delivering beautiful bows is Hermès – each one of its hair clips is cut by hand (so no two are the same) from printed silk-twill that is reminiscent of its iconic scarves.

For bows that twinkle, start with Self-Portrait at Duke of York Square. Its tweed micro bag is drenched in crystals for maximum impact. Next, head to Anabela Chan, where there is bow jewellery galore. The designer’s drop bow earrings, which emulate ribbons in recycled aluminium, are a signature style, but don’t miss this 18-karat gold vermeil ring featuring an outline of sparkling lab-grown diamonds. See also: Dolce & Gabbana’s sapphire, garnet and freshwater pearl bracelet, which is fairytale-like in its intricacy and heart detailing.

Does goth-bow sound more like you? Look to Prada for a logo-topped velvet hair clip that is at once befitting of Wednesday Addams and utterly timeless. If Ms Addams were shopping on Sloane Street, we’d also point her to Valentino’s slick slingbacks, which are topped with squidgy leather bows and the brand’s famed stud hardware. On the other end of the scale is Roger Vivier’s pretty pink kitten heels – the ideal date night shoes which are all the more romantic thanks to the sweetheart motif on the insole and swirly brand writing on the back.

Finally, we’ll leave you with a conundrum – is it a bow, or is it a plain knot? Only you decide, but one thing is for sure about Bottega Veneta’s belt: it makes a truly versatile addition to your wardrobe. The sleek gold fastening and length of elasticated intrecciato leather will look equally as good over a blazer, a knitted dress or a pair of jeans.
