Bows and Ribbons

As I said above, bows and streamers are also elements bound to cute and sweet styles, but black bows and streamers can always give people a black angelic sense of mystery.

The top can be paired with a classic shirt characterized by a stand-up collar and exaggerated ruffles on the front, in black, of course. Adding a bow from the collar to the chest can further emphasize the impression of a lady.

The principle of matching is harmony and balance. If you want to wear a dress with complicated hem and skirt, then the choice of shoes should not be too fancy, otherwise the whole body will feel very heavy, and it will look like a cake with ruffles all over, which is very bulky.

On the other hand, if you choose a more sophisticated top, you can wear shoes and socks with a more complex design to achieve a balanced look for the whole body.
