I ♥ Your Style: Bowties

Would you wear a bowtie? I’m not sure if I would. I am definitely a girl who loves a bow, but I think I am more of a bow-in-my-hair type of girl. I LOVE a black git was more of the soft pussycat-bow-on-a-blouse look. Never say never, but so far the urge to wear an actual bow tie hasn’t come to me.

Despite my own resistance, I love seeing other girls in bow ties. I notice that many girls who venture out in one make a regular habit of it. Alexa Chung, Janelle Monae and Diane Kruger have all worn bow ties countless times. In fact they’ve made it into somewhat of a signature, each in her own way.

I was especially excited when I saw Jenna Lyons recently show up at the Glamour Women of the Year awards in a white bow tie. A) I’d never seen her wear one before, B) It was a risk (that she pulled off), C) The monochrome of the white tie on white shirt was super chic, and D)She looked so cute standing next to her brother who was similarly dressed.

Bow ties are urbane, chic and romantic. Bow ties re-emerged on catwalks of Louis Vuitton and Gucci latest men’s fall 2013 collection. bowtie

Not entirely for self, though fantastic on these beauties. I do believe there is a fairly recent image of the fabulous Ms Kate Moss showcasing a pretty bowtie; she rocks any look though, doesn't she?

I love the quirky style of a bow tie. This French brand is doing handmade bow tie and it is very inspiring http://vermillontangerine.tumblr.com
