All Tied Up: 15 Sweet Pieces for the Bow Tie Enthusiast

Because sometimes you just want to wear something girly.

Try as we might to act mature and grown-up, there are certain things from our girlhood we’ll just never get over. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing—just look at the success of Zooey Deschanel. And though we’ll never encourage you to go completely twee, know that you can incorporate girly elements into your adult wardrobe and still be taken seriously. Take bow ties for example—when worn as subtle details or on grown-up silhouettes, they’re a sweetly creative way to signal you’re still young at heart, even while schmoozing at a business happy hour or sending flirty signals across the dance floor. Here are 15 of our favorite ways to wear the look right now. PS—you have our word that it will always come back in style.
