Bow ties have long been associated with stiff, dull events. Not anymore. The website Of a Kind is currently showcasing an exclusive bolo bow tie designed by Alex & Eli. With only 13 pieces available, this limited edition accessory is sure to be snapped up by the fashionista who likes to add a touch of quirky to her everyday look. Made of cream suede and black leather, here is a girly bow tie that is sure to set female hearts aflutter.
The bow tie that was released on 2 March retails for $125 apiece. A certificate of authenticity by the designers is included with each bow tie. The price may seem a deterrent, but look at how versatile this piece is. Popular blogger Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller photographed herself wearing the piece in a variety of different ways. The pretty bow tie tripled up as a necklace, a bow tie and a headband in Medine’s hands.
The Of a Kind website also shows how this little accessory can be worn to best effect. Wear it over your favourite little black dress as you head to the next happening party. Team it with an easy-going sweater, for an edgier look. You could even wear it in the traditional way, the way men have been wearing bowties for eons now, by pairing it with a well-starched shirt. The best thing is that the leather cord can be adjusted which can change your entire look.
It is cheeky yet girly, sophisticated yet playful. This bow tie is the stuff of fashionista dreams.
