Shake off any school girl connotations you associate with black velvet ribbons right this second.

Because by AW17, they're set to be everywhere, so you might as well get ahead of the curve and stock up in advance.


Whether you go down the Tory Burch route and opt for a black chunky ribbon wrapped around a relaxed ponytail, or keep it nice and easy like Emilia Wickstead and forgo the 'bow' altogether, tying a lengthy cut of grosgrain ribbon in a simple knot, you can't really go wrong.

'Don't worry if it's not perfect,' hair visionary and backstage legend, Guido told us at Tory Burch. 'If it's a little undone, floppy or asymmetrical it just adds to the charm.'
