Default Stacked Bows

My stacked bows are absolutely UGLY! Seriously, they never even look one quarter as nice as any of the bows I have ever seen here. That is why I haven't tried making any for my business.

How do you ladies choose your color combos for stacked bows. I just cannot seem to choose ribbons that look great together as a staked bow. UGLY I'm telling you Super UGLY!

I just do mine on the fly. Whatever colors jump out at me that day. I sometimes look on etsy for cute color combos.

I try to think of color combos that are really popular for clothing right now. There's the usual:
Light pink/white
Light pink/hot pink
Hot pink/apple
Brown/pink

And then I try to do some funky combos too:
Orange/hot pink
Brown/orange/hot pink/turquoise/apple
Bright yellow/hot pink/turquoise/lime

I like these! I search different boutiques and look at color combos. But most little girls like pink or their mom does. So I think you can never go wrong with pink combinations. I think its all in the order you put them as well. Making on color stand out more than the other.

I use this really technical method of sticking a bunch or ribbon on the table and see what pops out for the day- LOL!!! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't... My clients have come up with some really cute combos too though. My favorite was light and dark purple with lime green! I also look at kids clothing trends though, too. Bright and colorful seem to be the best sellers for me though. hth

THIS it will help you get an idea for what is "in" and selling. Plus if you have something that is cute but won't match anything someone owns chances are they won't buy it.

A lot of times different stores are selling similiar colors. I know right now there is a TON of stuff in red/black/white (with plaid too) at gymboree, childrens place, old navy and I'm sure other places.
