Bow Skirts | Inspired by Stacey Dash’s “Single Ladies” Style


Every Monday night, I tune into VH1’s new series, “Single Ladies.” Val, Stacey Dash’s character, is a boutique owner and is always in the most fabulous outfits. One of our Twitter pals pointed out that Anthony Williams, from season 7 of Project Runway, is Stacey’s “Single Ladies” stylist.

Stacey Dash Val Style on Single Ladies

On Episode 7 of “Single Ladies,” Val wore a simple, yet chic color block outfit — a hot pink, scoop-neck top by Jil Sander, a kelly green skirt with an over-sized bow detail, and blue suede Christian Louboutin “Open Lips” shoes. (By the way, the gorgeous white dress Val wore to brunch is vintage Thierry Mugler). The color block picks were on point but I was especially enthralled by Val’s green pencil skirt and its BIG bow. (It could be a bow belt) According to Anthony’s Twitter page, Val’s green skirt, made with Carolina Herrera fabric, was his own custom creation.

I love all things dainty and girly and nothing says dainty and girly like bow detailing. Check out these bow skirts and dresses, inspired by Val’s bodacious bow style on Single Ladies. For the DIY Bow tips, keep reading!

  • If you’re feeling creative, turn your quest for an oversized bow skirt into a DIY project. Find an oversized bow accessory and glue/stitch a flat back safety pin to it. Pin it to your skirt and voila! If you have a long piece of fabric handy, tie it around your waist and fashion it into a bow. You can also make your own bow in a few simple steps. Check out these bow making tutorials below:
