Emblematic of class and style, the bow tie gives an instant lift to any outfit. A formal bow tie typically comes in a luxe material, often in a solid colour such as black. For weddings, designers produce many different colours of formal bow ties.
These ties are not limited to formal occasions, however. Pair a wool bow tie or one in a fun, quirky pattern with your basic work suit and note how your ensemble instantly transforms from drab to fashion-forward in a few seconds.
