Women wearing ties isn’t a new thing.
Diane Keaton (the original hipster) made nerdy guys everywhere think they had a chance, as the tie wearing love interest of Woody Allen, in 1977’s Annie Hall. And even before that, Audrey Hepburn (a favorite of Tumblr and Pinterest users everywhere) was known to rock a bow tie every once and a while. Well, like all trends, what’s old is new again.
The Bow Tie is Back.
The women in bow ties thing has been percolating for a few years now. Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds star) made it her go to accessory a few years back. Even Rihanna (singer and Chris Brown enthusiastic) experimented with the bow tie look here and there. But, in 2013, the bow tie look seems ready to explode.
Whether it’s indie favorite Janelle Monae (singer from last summer’s most earwomy hit “We Are Young“), superstar Beyonce (the most powerful woman on Earth, sans Oprah) or TV’s guiltiest pleasure Kim Kardashian (Kanye’s baby’s mama) bow ties are definitely a trending topic in women’s style.
And we love it.
Emerging brands, like Modern Day Mogul, have started to cater to women’s needs in the bow tie department and we at FreshNeck think it’s totally dope. I mean, why should men have all the fun? The bow tie, especially for women, can be so versatile. It can add a pop of color to a simple black & white outfit. It can add some fun and irreverence to a blouse or dress shirt. Or it can grab some attention with a cool print or some sequins.
The women in bow tie look definitely has our stamp of approval.
