When it comes to certain articles of clothing, there are not strict rules dictating when and where they can be worn. In fact, it is often encouraged to purchase clothing, shoes and accessories based on their versatility. More often than not, you probably find yourself avoiding a purchase because you cannot seem to find a way to match the desired item with more than one pair of jeans, for example. This is a challenging task because it requires a creative mind to combine what you already own with what you want to own. For example, some may avoid the purchase of a bowtie because they can only think of one way in which it can be worn, that is, with a tuxedo and smoking. However if you are able to think outside the box, you can achieve multiple looks that rock a bowtie, such as this Fashionisto’s look, who brings a bit of old school charm into a contemporary look.
He does not need a button-down nor a tuxedo in order to debut his bowtie from H&M. In fact, he uses an accessory that carries the stigma of being worn to strictly fancy occasions, and inserts it into a fairly simple look. His mustard-hued trousers make a bold statement, and yet he reaches an equilibrium in the entirety of his look by pairing them with a monochromatic polo and bowtie. His outfit is not too busy, but he keeps it interesting by utilizing this interesting combo. His leather pointed-toe oxfords add a subtle hint of elegance without overdoing it with a pair of patent tuxedo shoes. This Fashionisto continues the trend of simplicity by sporting a thin leather belt and Fossil watch. The fabric of his bowtie is reminiscent of an old school sports coat, and he is able to reference this classic look without actually wearing this type of blazer. This PR major and fashion-goer dons a nice balance between bold and simple in his look.
