Bow ties are cool

JUMPER: H&M, SKIRT: TOPSHOP, BOOTS: OFFICE, BOW: ALDO & EARRINGS: THRIFTED

Bows bow bows. Such pretty little things. They have quite a strange gendered relationship with fashion though. Whilst the shape itself is rather unisex, it's interesting to consider that bow ties in formal wear are traditionally for men, whilst bow ties for hair and generally clothing are generally worn by women. I do however just love that trend of women in tuxedos currently. I'm not just talking about Angelina Jolie or whoever else your favourite female celebrity might be. It's surprising how many people think only one female has ever worn a tux on the red carpet... I suppose it's a wonder when 'female' bow ties might make the journey into men's fashion. We'll just have to wait and see.
