Trend Watch: Grosgrain Ribbon

While reading through the latest edition of House Beautiful magazine, I came across a feature on grosgrain ribbon. Personally, I've always found this preppy ribbon to be a chic accessory and often take a single strand and loop it into a simple headband for summer. But it seems this classic embellishment is suddenly surging in mass appeal and can now be found on everything from table linens and shower curtains to note cards and necklaces.
