Ruffles, Bows, and Scarves - Oh My! Donna Karen redefines classic, feminine American style with her DKNY S/S 2011 Fashion Show. Watch the full runway show above featuring behind-the-scenes footage with Donna Karan herself right after the show.
Leave it to Donna Karan for capturing the Parisian style of wearing scarves I was talking about last month (post here), but couldn't really find a picture of. When I saw the first models walking down the runway, I thought to myself, THIS IS IT! All the clothes are so classic, yet made fresh and feminine with these accents: bow belts, ruffles, scarves, and red pumps tied up with black bows. I can actually see myself wearing these clothes and living in them daily. Get on the scarf trend early America and try styling yourself some of these looks this fall.
Here are my favorite looks which I could see myself living in:

This is exactly how I saw the Parisian women wear scarves – sleek with the ties flowing in the back.
I also loved the other ways models wore their scarves, especially draped in front like a shirt.
Bow belts on skirts, dresses, and pants literally tied together the collection.
Dreamy ruffled skirt and a blazer to die for with a one-sided ruffle collar.
