From Distinguished Dapper Editorials to Luxe Library Photoshoots

A bold bow tie can take any outfit from drab to dapper and this collection of captures puts the neck tie front and center.

Suits traditionally are paired with a standard tie, while the tuxedo is an ultra-fancy fashion choice that not many can pull off. However, there's been a resurgence of the eccentric neckpieces that makes it suitable for any man, or in some cases a woman, to rock one.

High fashion design houses like Lanvin and Tom Ford take unexpected chances with the bow tie by crafting them smaller or larger in bold fabrics that bring the accessory full-force into the 21st century. Bow ties are no longer just a geek-chic accessory, which is why adding one to your wardrobe won't mean being labeled a nerd. Stats for 20 Bold Bow Tie Captures Trending: Older & Warm
