Bow Ties

Are in! I wrote an article about the neck knots back in December and wanted to shed new light on the feature. Below are some photos of me in a Marina Makaron Moscow bow tie and an update on my article!

The bow tie dates back to the 17th century during the Prussian wars, when Croatian mercenaries used scarves to hold the openings of their shirts together. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the French upper classes used bow ties as a sign of the aristocracy and a fashion-forward royal court. Now, after a slight decline in popularity, the bow tie is back and bolder than ever.

The 21st-century versions are printed and studded to perfection. No longer just for formal occasions, this accessory is commonly worn during the day with alternative looks. For instance, one might wear colored khakis, a dress shirt, combat boots and a studded bow tie. Designers are feeding the consumer’s want, need and opportunity to be different. Tying on these updated bow ties is a way for men (and women) to show confidence in their appearance.

Want to try a bow tie? No time is better than now! Rock a unique bow while mingling with family at holiday events. Switching up your style says a lot to others. Make this summer the one where you shine. For a glam look, add a few rhinestones to your tie. Remember: Go bold or be boring!

Ostwalk Helgason: My UKspiration

London based brand Ostwald Helgason was founded in 2008 by Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason. The bold colors and cheeky prints form their latest collection caught my eye. Giraffes and crocs juxtaposed with bright fabrics. A spring must for the fashionistas in my life!
