Bow ties have been dominating the fashion industry for decades but they are still not as popular as neckties. Bow ties were very famous during the colonial ages. We do see people wearing bow ties in particular events, but for daily wear, we see that people prefer neckties more.

Did you ever wonder why bow ties are not worn on a daily basis? Well, the answer to that question is that bow ties are one of the most precious and royal wear that a man can have in his wardrobe. 

Bow ties are usually meant to be worn for particular events, and that too very formal ones. If you keep on wearing bow ties for every event now and then, then the essence of the bow ties will be lost. Therefore, only wear funky bow ties when the event is super special. 

In this post, we will discuss a few events where you can wear bow ties to stand out from the crowd.

Formal events

When there is a wedding reception or an anniversary to attend, you can opt for a black bow tie with a black suit or tuxedo. You can also wear a white bow tie with light-colored attire as well.

At workspace

Normally we do not see many people these days wearing bow ties to the office. People prefer neckties more than bow ties for daily usage. But for special days like your office annual appraisal meetings, promotion meetings, and other events you can wear a bow tie. You can also wear it daily and do not worry no one will judge. In the movie Superman, we saw Kent Clark wearing a bow tie to Daily Planet every day. It is not a big deal to wear a bow tie every day, but if you wear it once in a while, then it will preserve the essence of the bow tie. So, it is advisable that you do not wear the bow tie every day to the office, rather wear it when there is a special event like meeting a new client, etc.

So, here are a few events where you can wear a bow tie.
