Neck Bows Are Happening. Are You In?

We are huge fans of menswear in the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices, especially when it looks as good as it does on Emma Watson. And we’re equally big fans of fashion risk-takers. This week, those two worlds combined on three very different stars, all of whom accompanied their suit ensembles with noteworthy neck bows of varying sizes. Let’s discuss, shall we?

From left, Nicole Kidman‘s cape was already daring enough, so she kept her neck bow on the smaller side. The classy bow and sweeping cape had a very Parisian “white tie-and-tails” feel, and the accompanying beauty styling suited the style perfectly.

Next, Emma Stone went for a look simultaneously more casual and more dramatic. Along with her jeans and cropped wool blazer, she chose a crisp cotton tee with one major feature: a protruding, oversized bow knotted smartly around her neck. Ashley Benson (in Max Mara and Paule Ka) echoed the look with a bow of similar size, but the floppy feel and satin fabric had more of a “nighttime” vibe.

These three ladies are frequently at the top of our “best dressed” list, and with three stars in five days wearing this look, we have to assume it’s about to take off in a major way. But before that happens, we have to know: Are you into it? General thoughts? How would you wear it? Tell us below.

Kim on

They were ugly in the 80s, and still ugly now although Nicole Kidman does the best at pulling it off.
