The original bow tie was ribbon of fabric tied around the collar of a shirt in such a symmetrical manner that the two opposite ends form loops.

 

Sometime, man learnt he could create a bow tie as it is without the hassle of learning how to tie one, creating “clip-ons” dispense with the band altogether, instead clipping to the collar.

These instruments are items that started off in Europe to help men hold the upper part of their shirts together but I’m sure we are not here from a history lesson.

What was once a culture of men has now flourished into a cool hip accessory. In the 70s and 80s, European and American women had always worn the floppy bow blouse, also known back then as the pussy bow blouse. A formal style like the bow tie for men but more decorated.




But with the rise of women’s rights and the challenge leading through our time, somewhere along the lines, core professional women and dropped the pussy bow blousse and picked up with bow tie, of which a fashion statement was later born.

Today with stars like Janelle Monae and more coupled with bow ties can only reflect a well organized and sophisiticated lady. After all is can only with dawned on with a buttoned shirt with a colour, which is a fashion item that circulates the professional world more than other.

So the rise of the African print bow ties can only imply onething. A professional sophisticated lady that is connected to or shared interest in African culture or fashion.

One who might not necessarily scream “I don’t need a man” or “I really Need A Man”, she simply appreciates the corporate world and is also capable of bringing more to the table. Scroll down to see ways you can play around with the bow tie:
