TREND WATCH: BOW TIES NOT JUST FOR THE BOYS

Could it be with the upcoming release of "CoCo Before Chanel" that a rebirth of men's trends in the woman's wardrobe is exploding? I sincerely believe that it never really left, its just that lately it has been more apparent than ever. Bow ties are once again easing their way into our fashion editorials and I am loving the statement. You may remember in an earlier post where I turned my dress backwards that it looked like I was wearing a bow tie. I might just have to go for the real thing.

I have seen it and I would probably be all over it, but I actually have one like it.

I'm down with the longer, floppy ones like in the second pic, but I don't think I could do the stiff, starched standards. (How's that for alliteration!). Could be fun, though! I do know that I loved the skinny tie trend until EVERYONE did it. Maybe now I can start up again. :3

Bow ties are great; I much prefer a longer necktie, though.

alixrose said...

Jaka - you could totally bring the skinny necktie back.
Dad's closet is always convenient.

Sarah Marie - Great to meet a fellow seattlite who loves fashion!
