Kate Middleton Is Bringing Back Velvet Hair Bows for the Holidays
Kate Middleton is no stranger to switching up her royal style, but there’s one accessory that she’s wearing for more and more: a little black hair bow. On November 28, the Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium with her husband, Prince William, where she showed off a twisted ponytail finished with the velvet hair accessory.
The holiday-ready bow held together her ponytail for a regal look we’re totally onboard with. The style featured loosely curled ends and a lightly teased crown, creating a voluminous finish fit for the fashion-forward duchess.
As with many of Middleton’s outfits (like this Jenny Packham Gown), the velvet hair bow was not a one-off. On November 21, while on a solo trip to a UCL Developmental Neuroscience Lab in London, Middleton accessorized her ponytail (this time featuring more curls and less teasing) with a black bow.
This leaves us with one very important question: Where can we get a royal-approved hair bow? Aside from heading to the fabric store for a bit of ribbon, try the Wild Fable Metal Velvet Ribbon Bow Barrette ($10). It snaps on so you don’t have to worry about it falling out and having to restyle.
