How to wear: Bowties
The elegant and sophisticated bowtie is a style force to be reckoned with. It has taken the place of the usual, hum-drum neck tie. Oozing personality, the bowtie isn’t afraid to put itself out there and stand proud amongst a sea of neckties at a gala or black tie event.
Don’t be fooled or misled: the beloved bowtie is completely androgynous. Women can rock the bowtie look just as well as (or better than) any man. All you need is a little attitude to pull it off.
For men, the bowtie is best worn with a fitted button-down shirt at weddings, black tie events, and even at work. There’s something about this look that exudes a debonair style and classic taste.
Women can also sport the same look with a feminine blouse that has a unique, bright pattern. Mixing a neutral accessory like the bowtie with a lady-like touch is highly recommended.
The bowtie is so fantastically uncomplicated. There’s no fuss or muss. With a necktie, you practically need to take a course on how to tie it so that it doesn’t end up looking bunched or bumpy. In this day and age, who knows how to properly tie a tie? And who has the time to make sure it comes out looking nice and smooth?
For those who are stumped by neckties and those who simply don’t have the time, you can rest easy with a bowtie and stop stressing about tie techniques. One clip and you’re done.
When worn correctly, the bowtie can be as sophisticated as they come. People pay more attention. They stop and stare. It’s admired and appreciated because of its one-of-a-kind, unexpected nature.
By wearing a bowtie, you’re making a fashion statement that tells on-lookers you’re not afraid to stand out and look different. You’re not one who wants to blend into the background. You want to be seen.
I don’t think that anyone can go wrong with wearing a bowtie. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any outfit that you want to dress up and wear to a more formal event or occasion. The bowtie won’t fail you and your personal style. It will be there whenever you’re ready to make that grand entrance.
