bow tie outfits

Not just for preppy boys, bow ties are making a comeback. And we’ve picked our favourite shirts just waiting for a little homemade dickie bow to finish the look; three looks for ladies and three more for the fellas.

[Clockwise from top-left] 1. Classic with a twist, this tape shirt from Folk would look dapper with a bright bow tie. 2. Quack! These ducks are flying high on a shirt by New Look. 3. Gingham is always in fashion. Top this checked number by APC with a brightly patterned bow.

4. Raindrops pour down this Anthropologie shirt. A sweet little bow would help you feel sunny again. 5. This understated Toast number is the perfect blank canvas for a pop of colour. 6. Seeing spots? Match lips and nails to a red bow tie to really make this Topshop shirt sing.
