Probably, we will never know who tied the first bow. Perhaps then it was used only for its intended purpose: to interconnect strands, ropes, ribbons or laces. Bows became a wanted accessory in the 17th century, when they began to embellish clothes. A women’s dress of those years could have plenty of them – the more the better. Ladies wore them on gloves, hats and on shoes too. Bows served as a decorative element in jewelry: they complemented necklaces, bracelets, hair pins.

Today lush bows or their images are purely female adornment, or act as interior decoration. However, in the epoch of their great popularity, even men added them to costumes. Aristocrats of the 17th century tied their short pants (culottes), making a bow under the knee. They wore bows on the neck as a ruff or neckerchief and also attached them to shoes and boots. Yes, once respectable men of noble families looked very sophisticated.

Fashion trends of the 18th century were stricter, but they still demanded that the men tied hair with a ribbon. However, then bows began to disappear from the male wardrobe and remained only in ladies outfits. Gradually, ribbons ceased to be an obligatory detail of female costume. Actually throughout the years the fashion for them returned a few times. So, in the 19th century blouses with a bow were highly popular, and they came back in the 20th. Today, this accessory continues to inspire designers and is unlikely to ever lose its relevance.
