How to be bold with a bow tie
Opting for a bow tie is a great way to bring boldness and personality to any social or formal event. When choosing the right bow tie for your outfit you want one that will not only express character and boldness but one that will make you stand out and tie together your whole look.
There are many different styles and materials to choose from and each evoke different personas. From silk to cotton to suede and leather, the possibilities are endless. This guide tells you how to choose the right bow tie for your individual style.
Choosing a bold and vibrant print will add a pop of colour to your overall look especially if you’re wearing a simple black suit or tux. When choosing the right print make sure it doesn’t clash with any other colours you might be wearing and always opt for a simpler square pocket. A bright colour will bring to life any monochrome outfit.
When choosing the right material of your bow tie consider the occasion. A silk tie is traditionally formal and classic while a leather bow tie will add an edge to your look while still remaining elegant and chic. A suede bow tie is a perfect way of dressing up your everyday office shirt without going over the top and will make any repetitive office wear more exiting.
READY TIE VS SELF TIE
Tying a bow tie can be a complicated task especially for a first-time wearer. A ready tie is a great option for people who want to have a bow tie ready for them to wear without the fuss. They also always look flawless. However, a self-tie will always have individuality as no two people tie the same.
