Initially regarded as formal attire for men, the return of the classic bow tie has been spotted all over the red carpet and catwalks; from high-end fashion to celebrities, everyone is embracing this incredibly chic accessory.
This extremely versatile item adds a fun vibrancy to any casual look, as well as a sense of sophistication when paired with a sharp, tailored blazer.
However, it is the delicate female interpretation that has added a new spin to this predominantly male inspired look, exemplifies the bow tie’s full versatility.
Being worn with a tailored blazer gives a feminine touch to a masculine concept, while pairing a loosely tied bow with a feminine dress adds a new take, erasing all notions of masculinity.
Cinching in the waist is an effective way of reiterating the feminine form in order to ensure the look is not consumed by a mass of masculinity.
For both genders, exchanging the plain black tie with a brightly coloured, patterned or textured one is an easy way to add that extra statement, which, after all, is what this trend is all about.
