Tie Me!

By KristySamone — July 26, 2012

I’m loving my b&w bow tie by Countess Mara! 

No longer are bow ties confined to black tie and cocktail parties – they have been free to be rocked whenever. Where did bow ties come from? Well, as the story goes – during the 17th century Prussian wars, Croatian mercenaries wore colorful neck scarves to denote higher rank. The French (fighting alongside) were so impressed they took the idea home and renamed the look ‘cravats.’  It became super cool for the upper crust of French society.

Although this is technically menswear, I don’t think I’ve ever felt more like a woman!

The rest: button up – Banana Republic, arm candy – Forever 21 & Arden B
