A pink bow tie is a fun way to stand out at any event, showing off your sense of humor and stylistic flair, not to mention your bow-tying skills! Bow ties are not just for Southern gentlemen. A pink bow tie can be incorporated into nearly any outfit, no matter your usual style. This article shares some of the best pink bow ties available at the moment.
The apparel company Vineyard Vines, founded in 1998, makes ties that "represent the finer places and things life has to offer." Their 100% silk pale pink Racquet Club Silk Bow Tie ($55) features a golf club and tennis racquet pattern and is described as a "no-fail mix of sporty and classic." This fun, versatile pattern makes it a worthy investment. Also available is the Vineyard Vines Pelican Cummerbund Set ($110). This salmon-colored set, also 100% silk, features a pattern of small pelicans and green flying fish. Wear this set to show off your personality at a black-tie event; it's sure to be a talking point!
Brooks Brothers is another preppy label that can serve all your bow tie needs. Their Jockey Stripe Bow Tie ($55) is a midsize light pink bow tie with small navy stripes that comes in a classic butterfly style. It is more formal than patterned bow ties, making it easier to accessorize. If you are looking for a darker pink style, the Diamantine Frame Stripe Bow Tie ($55) in Fuchsia features a deep pink color with some narrow brown and white striping. Finally, there is the Micro Parquet Pine Bow Tie ($55), which comes in a solid light pink and baby-blue detail.
Southern Proper, a relatively new brand dedicated to the romantic, crisp look of classic Southern style, has a number of preppy pink offerings. The Southern Stars Cummerbund Set in Pink ($125) will class up your black tie event in no time. Other bow ties available in pink are the Dove Beau ($55) and the Polo Beau ($55); the sophisticated yet fun patterns are reminiscent of the Vineyard Vines styles.
If you are looking for an informal bow tie for more casual wear, the ASOS Oxford Bow Tie in Red ($14.38) is the product for you. This piece is pre-tied and made of 100% cotton, featuring an uneven-tone pink color finish. It is adjustable and is secured by a narrow metal hook and eye closure. This bow tie can also be machine washed in a cold cycle, unlike silk bow ties which are dry-clean only.
Generic bow tie retail websites can also be a good place to browse if you are trying out the pink bow tie look and don't want to make a big investment right away. The Bows 'N' Ties site sells a pre-tied solid deep fuchsia tie for $14.90, and a matching pocket square is available for $7.95. At The Tie Bar, you can search available bow ties by color and by material. This site sells wool and cotton bow ties alongside silk ones, to suit your seasonal needs and level of formality.
