Pretty Classic!

It seems like fashion has done a switcheroo with gender these days. Men are wearing tighter jeans and women are wearing looser jeans. While their might be a little mix up with gender fashion, it still manages to be androgynous, and bow ties are a prime example.

i love bow ties. for women.

Bow ties have been around since the 17th century when the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold the opening of their shirt and thus beginning the bow tie style evolution. They can go from ultra masculine to confidently feminine. They are a classic accessory that can be bold and elegant all at the same time. 


We think women who wear them are instantly noticed for their boldness, charm and style... and we love it!

As you now know, we love bows and bow ties, so we were happy to hear that our good friend since high school, Nicole (the one in the pink platforms above!), has partnered up with her friend in making the cutest bow ties! Their new company is called Pretty Classic which we think is pretty cute and stylish. Every bow tie is handmade and what's even better? They do custom orders!

Here are a some of our favorites:

  7. The right bowtie can make a chick look really sweet and feminine. I loved the second-last one! Cause I'm going through a leopard print phase.
