Below you can find a 3 steps process which will be a real helper when you decide to wear a bow tie at an event:
• consider the event you have to attend;
• choose the shirt you are going to wear;
• choose the bow tie.
Never start in the reverse order if you want to get a perfect appearance.
Step 1. Consider the event you have to attend
Think about the event you are going to attend. Is it a formal or an informal one? If it is a formal one, you should know if it is a black tie or a white tie. If it is a formal dinner or a wedding evening celebration, your bow tie should be white and made of pure silk. Black tie includes business meetings, events at the Opera or other formal occasions.
Otherwise, the more casual the event is, the more freedom you have in choosing the bow tie you like. Sky is the limit when talking about colors, patterns and textures.
Step 2. Choose the shirt you are going to wear
Now that you know what kind of event you are going to attend, think about the perfect shirt. If it is a formal event, you have only two options: a black or a white shirt. If the shirt has a neutral color, it is easier to match a bow tie. You don’t need to worry. Otherwise, take into consideration the following tips and tricks.
Step 3. Choose the bow tie
Talking about the type of your bow tie, you have three options: clip-on, pre-tied and self-tied. Clips-one are appropriate only for kids. Real gentlemen always prefer a self-tied, paying attention to tie it properly.
The most common shapes are the butterfly and the batwing and you cannot be wrong if you use them. If it is an informal event and you dare, you can use one of the other three (jumbo butterfly, diamond point or slim diamond point).
Pay attention if you choose an oversize bow tie. The role of the bow tie is to accentuate your overall look not to capture the whole attention.
If it is winter, go for a dense fabric such us wool and tweed. Lighter fabrics should we kept for summer days. Never choose a dense fabric in hot weather. A silk bow tie is a perfect choice for formal events, worn with tuxedos or dinner jackets. Always pair the texture of the bow tie with the texture of the suit you wear.
Regarding the colors, when we talk about a less-formal or informal event, contrast is the key word. Take into consideration the color when and you will never be wrong.
