Despite the rain that has poured over New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2024 thus far, countless beloved A-listers and socialites alike have been stepping out with their best foot forward.
In the world of beauty,
Audrey Hepburn-esque “midi bangs” are no doubt having their moment, with Julia Fox most recently adopting the edgy look. And alongside rising fashion trends like the ballet flat, cozy leg warmers, and more, balletcore continues to define the trends (and is expected to reach new heights this upcoming season). Adorning your hair in darling ribbons and soft girl bows, of course, is one of the easiest ways to explore the pretty aesthetic.
Some of today’s biggest pop stars often incorporate ribbons into their own looks, on and off the stage. To name just a few,
Ariana Grande, Sabrina Carpenter, Madison Beer, and BLACKPINK’s Jennie Kim have very much made coquettish ribbons a part of their personal style and brand, wrapping their deep lyrics with sweetness.
