Bravo series ‘Odd Mom Out’ has taken reality TV lovers to a whole new level of obsessed. For the average New Yorker the dialogue is “too good to be true” and the characters remind us all of someone we grew up with or currently work with. Jill Kargman, star and creator of the series grew up on the Upper East Side but said she was “always in with one foot and out the door with another.” The struggle is beautifully depicted on the show making a hilarious throwback for fellow born and raised Manhattanites.
Anyone who knows the Upper East side of Manhattan knows that fashion comes first. The residents in the area are labelled by their preppy style, polished looks from head to toe and most importantly the coveted designer labels. On “Odd Mom Out” Kargman distinguishes herself as “different” by promoting her personal style. Over and over again on the show (and in real life as she details in interviews) we see this with a particular piece: the bow.
After four episodes of ‘Odd Mom Out’ it is safe to say fans are suffering from major bow envy. Here are 12 times she has thrown us some bow shade and it does not look like she is stopping now.
Silk Blouse with a digitally printed bow
This bow shows how awesome the fashion industry can be. It is the kind of piece you wear when you want everyone to look at you. It is printed onto the shirt so it gives the illusion that it is hanging off the shirt when really, it is on there for life. If there is one thing to take from this, bows are forever.
Gold Sequin Dress with a black side bow
#TB back to the sequin and we are still in love. Still got a side bow going on too but this one has a much more casual vibe to the point where if you are not ready to go bow crazy, this would be a way to put your feet in.
Blue dress with a checkered black bow
This is the first bow Kargman wears that is not solid black. It complements the rest of the dress’s unique pattern adding a nice cohesiveness throughout the look. Still front and center (because, let’s face it, bows rule) we continue to expose ourselves to the fierceness that is the bow trend.
Floral Dress with a Side Bow
There are few things better than a side bow. I mean as Andy Cohen, executive producer of Bravo says, “I love me a side pony.” Everything just looks better at an angle. One of the stranger things about art.
Red Lace Blouse with a black bow detail
Kargman’s style explores “dark femme.” Playing with pieces that are originally labeled “girly” like bows, lace and florals and pairing them with the dark side of fashion is an innovative twist on fashion industry faves.
Gold D&G Dress with Black Bow
Everyone loves a statement piece– especially ‘Odd Mom Out’ Jill Kargman. The Dolce is signature Upper East Side and the black bow is just big enough to say I don’t belong here.
Lace tank top with black bow tie
Nothing says “I have arrived” like a black bow tie. The essence of class and formality, it is a fun and unexpected accessory choice to spice up a going out outfit.
Black Sequin Dress with White Structured Bow
It’s hard to outdo sequins but this white structured bow puts up a pretty good fight. If it wasn’t for the side detail and impeccable sewing it would be hard to tell it is a bow without looking closely. But in the end, looks like a bow, feels like a bow, sewn like a bow, it’s a bow.
Black blouse with a long black bow embellishment
Make that bow front and center like Kargman did in this blouse because let’s face it: the bow is the star and it deserves to be the center of attention on its night out.
White Sweater with Shiny Black Top and Bow Detail
Who says bows always have to be dressed up? Dress it down a bit like Kargman in this adorable white sweater with a bow detail. A great rule to remember with all personal style is to play up your neutrals with embellishments.

Finally, last but not least, the bow tattoo. Kargman debuts the bow tattoo on ‘Odd Mom Out’ and it could not be cooler. So chic and unexpected– moms everywhere… take note.
