Tied up trends: ribbons and shirts.

Using a ribbon to tie under the collar of your shirt is a look that's been around for years, with Chanel showing beautiful how to make the best of the trend. But recently it seems to be making a reappearance with anyone who's anyone rocking the look.

Of course, you don't just have to stick to ribbon - you could try using different materials or even creating a bow look with a small scarf. Or why not use the ribbon as a headband instead? It's such a simple look but is so effective!

We've created a couple of looks below to give you some inspiration - all of the clothing featured is vintage and from Emma's shop.

This boyfriend shirt looks even better with a tartan ribbon.

This gold ribbon really brings out the gold detail on this shirt!

This cute pink ribbon with white lace trim would really brighten up any outfit.

You don't just have to stick to shirts, why not try adding a ribbon to your favourite jacket?
