Tie a Wooden Bow Tie
Crocodile on my feet
Fox fur on my back
Bowtie ’round my neck
That’s why they call me gangsta mack
In the Cadillac!! Yeah!!!
-Lyrics from Outkast’s “Bow Tie”

Who is selling my favourite Bow Tie: Duet Luxury (http://duetluxury.com/)
Duet Luxury captured the quick fading fashion trend of Bow Tie. The wooden embedded bow with subtle coloured ties are so eyed catchy that one cannot go home empty handed. They have dedicated a great deal of time maintaining their look and taking stock in their collection. With all the options available, there is no reason to hesitate to incorporate a bow into your own style.
Wooden Bow tie by duet is rarest of its kinds and can be matched with any attire and look. While I wore a white peplum top with a dark blue bow tie that went really well with blue denim. One can also replace the same with ripped denims for an even more casual look.
For formal look the Lakme 9 to 5 dark lip shade is matched with beige coloured heels. For an informal look white canvas shoes can be teamed with very light makeup.
Wear With What
The most common occasion they are worn is in business situations where the level of dress is formal but not so serious as to necessitate a formal suit and tie. Basically to have more fun. Most commonly worn with khakis and a blue blazer with gold buttons, the formality level can easily be upped by wearing a matching suit. Shoes will range from Sperry’s at most casual, up to leather shoes at most formal with nice loafers and suede Oxfords falling in-between
Wear it with similar coloured pullovers or mufflers for the coming winters.
Match it with another vintage accessory, like the handkerchief or suspenders.
For a suits, go with navy, black or grey, and for shirts, stick to blues and whites.
A good alternative is to combine it with a plaid shirt, whose tones must be the same.
Wear a bow tie without the classic jacket, with rolled up shirt sleeves and a used leather jacket.
Favourite for college going teens would be to carry a bow tie with a Shirt, denim and sneakers.
A bowtie is a great option for a work party like a holiday party. Where the dress level is formal but more enjoyable. Female dress ranges from cocktail attire to ‘fun’ business attire (no matching suits-wearing a blazer over a dress or skirt and blouse is fine)
Large, floppy ascot bows can be very feminine
Denim shirt with multi coloured or stripped bow
Try a loosely-fitted bow with shorts or a cute skirt.
For a classy look, pair a tiny bow tie with shorts and a blazer
Pair them with wedges, pencils heels to make them look formal
Pairing a coloured bow or single bright shaded bow over a pullover
Pair with a peter pan collar or sailor shirt for an added vintage look
A hat along with a bow will make your evening attire look more interesting
History tells us why a bow tie has always been, and will always be an essential style statement. Bow tie’s show that I am independent and I respect my work. I’m not trying to fool anyone here but people who dress well deserve well. Everyone can carry a bow tie in their own way styling with different clothes and outshining the crowd.
I loved how well the wooden bow tie gets along with any colour or shirt.
Here is my overall look with the DuetLuxury’s wooden Bow Tie that I am absolutely in love with.
Bow tie is such a small piece of accessory that it’s acceptable for it to get loud with shapes and colours. You wanted to stand out by wearing one, so embrace it.
