Once nerdy, then they came back, now they're just kinda... here. Regardless of how much of a role bow ties play in your life, you know them as quirky, fun, and the badge of a bold individual. In the beginning of my style journey in high school, I fell in love with the idea that I could wear something as simple as a bow tie yet stand apart from my counterparts. There's something about its mix of eloquence and fun. Its almost as if this one small piece of fabric has a personality of its own!
I strongly encourage you to find something in your wardrobe that sets you apart. Maybe its funky socks, you give your pants an extra cuff roll, or you don't mind experimenting with suspenders (that wasn't a joke). Its another step towards feeling comfortable in your own skin and finding your personal style.
What's your go-to statement piece that sets you apart? Let me know in the comments below.
