WHITE BOW TIES
The elegance of white bow ties is reserved for extravagant weddings, debutante balls, and select other highly formal functions. White bow ties are the best and often only choice for the creme de la creme of formal affairs. Pairing them with a tail style tuxedo, crisp white shirt, and waistcoat creates a time-honored look. If you really want to “put on the Ritz”, add a top hat, white gloves or a dress cane. These sophisticated touches make you stand out and set you apart in a white tie affair.
Selecting the right white bow tie to add to your tuxedo may seem like an easy choice. However, there are some basic rules you should follow. Choosing a self-tied white bow tie without a pattern is key. Clip-on bow ties make you look sloppy and cheap. If you are going to spend the time and effort to look your best, don’t spoil the look with a cheap tie. Choosing silk, satin or velvet white bow ties and pocket squares make the right impression.
