As summer lowers—albeit languidly—over the horizon to make way for autumn, transitional beauty notes are seeping into the collective consciousness. But if you ask Kirsten Dunst, the carry-over will be as simple as a well-placed accessory. Yesterday, the streets of New York City saw the actress debuting such a cue, her hair combed into a soft half-up style secured with a black bow.
With her sunny lengths swinging in easy bends, and a set of bohemian bangs separated at the center and edging toward temples, the look was an effortlessly romantic one. Not to mention, presented an ideal pairing for both a summer sundress and fall's forthcoming cadre of chunky knits. And to take it up a notch for nighttime wear? Make like Dunst and opt for a swipe of classic red lipstick and—should weather permit—a show-stopping leg reveal. Because who says a bow's oft-demure nature doesn't play well with hints of va-va-voom?
