Beau ties – how to style a bow tie casually.


Beau ties – how to style a bow tie casually.

Maple And Oak for him

I’ve been making pre-tied bow ties for a couple of months now but I’ve never been happy with just calling them that. What could I name this funky Maple And Oak accessory? Then it finally came to me. Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to: the Beau Tie!

They’re pre-tied bow ties for your beau. Beau ties. Or if you like to rock them yourself, they make you and your babes total beau-ties! Ok, that might go a bit to far here…but what the heck, I like it!

Now, when you think of bow ties you probably think about fancy weddings, overdressed professors or even funerals. Bow ties have a reputation to be classy, dapper and spiffy. Maybe like this:

Or this:

Bow tie, classy

Which is really cool and I love that elegant style! It’s just not a look that most guys would want to rock on a daily basis.

So have you (or your beau) ever thought about styling them casually? I recently talked to a friend about my beau ties and she’s absolutely in love with them but couldn’t get her fiancé to order one because he doesn’t dress that classy on a normal week day and didn’t think he could pull it off.

But let me tell you, you can absolutely have a casual style and incorporate a bow tie into your everyday look. My beau ties are usually pretty funky and go well with light checkered or striped shirts.

This is my husband Guillaume wearing a pair of old jeans, a leather belt with a big buckle (there has to be some Rock’n’Roll somewhere!), sneakers, a shirt with rolled up sleeves and a white beau tie with a baby blue floral print. Looks pretty comfy to me!

Here are a few more shots, so you get the idea.

I really like to see a guy wearing a casually styled beau tie. It’s pretty cute and makes them look handsome, at least in my eyes. What’s your opinion on bow ties? If you now think: “Yeah, great, I love your beau ties but I’m a woman. What’s with all the photos of men here?”. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered – I’ll show you how to dress a beau tie on a lady next Monday!

With love from the Maple And Oak Diaries,
