For a sophisticated look that projects confidence, we love to match our shirts, suits and tuxes with a colorful and bold bow tie. A black bow tie may be the height of coolness with a designer tuxedo, but sometimes it’s fun to play with color and add some flair to your most formal attire. Whether you’re looking for an accessory that will add some personality to your next wedding date, or want to have fun at the office while still looking presentable at company-wide meetings, a colorful bow tie can turn an otherwise standard look into a memorable outfit. Likewise, colored bow ties add a touch of class to costumes and uniforms.
We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite colorful bow ties that are a great match for a variety of occasions. For those who only wear bow ties on rare occasions, a more high end and durable bow tie will provide an accessory that can last for years. If you’re looking to match a large wedding party or singing group, affordable sets of matching colorful bow ties can make a group look put together and cohesive. For those who want to play with their look on a daily basis, sets of bow ties with bold patterns can make for a fun foray into formal fashion.
Add some flair to your look and show that formal can still be fun with a colorful bow tie.
