In the 17th century, Croatian mercenaries used a scarf tied around their neck to keep their shirts closed up at the collar. Soon, the upper class French adopted this style of fastening their shirts and named it a cravat. And today, the bow tie has come to be known as an accessory to be added to just a shirt or a suit that gives it an extra flair. Modern bow ties can be made with just about any fabric or pattern you can imagine, meaning it is a great way to add a little fun or class to an outfit. Whether you mean to be funny or classic or modern or edgy, you can find a bow tie that works for you. Another thing that’s changed in recent yers, bow ties used to be reserved solely for men. But nowadays, women can wear them to! So why don’t we all pick out one that we feel represents us best, and take to the streets to share our style with the world?!
