Default Big bows for teenagers...

So I have a client that just ordered all of her daughters clothes for fall, she chose certain colors and emailed me tonight wanting $100 worth of bows in matching colors. Her daughter likes big bows but I don't want to do all of the same bow, I'm doing about 15 bows for her.

What kind of big bows are teenagers wearing other than just a basic bow? I want to give her variety but can't figure out what else to do?

Tuxedo bows are popular with teenagers, maybe a cheer type bow (if thats at all her style). There is really only so much you can do in big bows without them all being the same with different colors/prints.

Sometimes it's really hard to create something and know someone will like it when it is so open ended like that. Congrats on the big order, good luck!

That's what I was thinking. Guess I'll start browsing some bow sites tomorrow, I'm just worried I'd be more likely to pick stuff out that my little one would wear instead of a teen. HAHA!

MY daughter is 16 and likes the tuxedo bows. I also put them on FOE to make headbands and those are good. My nieces and daughter also like the bows made from the crochet headbands. Make it just like the tuxedo bows.

I just had a show at a local high school and made large tuxedo bows for the teenage girls. I made about 40 and sold out! I put a few rhinestones on some and they went first. Also, the duct tape bows are very popular in my area with that age group.

How large are the ones you all are saying the teens like? I am just curious because I can't imagine my 15 year old wearing large ones.
