So last week we began Bow Tie Week on our Twitter and Instagram, where everyday we shared a new outfit of the day featuring one of our super cool bow ties. From the likes of effortless Alexa Chung and the quirky Rita Ora to the magnificently beautiful Hollywood movie star Diane Kruger, there’s a bow tie, necktie or collar for every girl.
But we know, we know, it’s not something that everyone finds easy to style (even though it’s amazingly easy). So we thought we’d let you into our wardrobe for 7 whole days via the power of social media. Here’s our roundup of #bowtieweek…
DAY 1: DENIM DARLING
This look is so chic. A simple bow tie can jazz up a plain denim shirt or dress. Add a vintage belt and some pretty wristwear and you’re good to go. This look is completely effortless.
DAY 2: ROYAL ASCOT
This look is sort of regal, no? We think it’s so Ascot but with a slight androgynous edge. Either tuck the neckerchief into your shirt / top or tie it with a knot Audrey Hepburn style. And don’t you just love the quirky horse print? What a great twist.
DAY 3: PRETTY IN TULLE
Peppered with hearts, this tulle oversized bow collar is just the prettiest. Perfect for the girly girl, this transparent tulle pops against any colour. Here we’ve gone for a bright red jumper with contrasting cobalt heels and acid wash jeans for a bold and youthful look.

DAY 4: LEOPARD LOVELY
On the fourth day we wanted to fuse something wild with something dainty. We threw together a sheer leopard print shirt with our detachable Peter Pan collar to create a recipe of love. Simple yet gorgeous.

DAY 5: BOLD IN GOLD
Fridays are about going all out and making a statement. So we’ve dug out some chunky gold jewellery (very on trend at the moment) and clashed it together with our classic paisley necktie. It’s an eyecatching look that can add an edge to any outfit.

DAY 6: ECLECTIC SOUL
This look is for the eclectic dresser. If your wardrobe is filled with vintage gems, clashing prints and crazy colours, we dedicate this outfit of the day to you. Combine a tie with a long chunky necklace to add another dimension to an everyday t-shirt.

DAY 7: MELLOW YELLOW
We toned our look down on Sunday with a very simple jacket and bow tie combo. A plain white shirt or black top would work perfectly to bring out the gorgeous colours of this wonderful paisley print. So sophisticated yet fun at the same time.
