For Christmas this year, I, after careful consideration of this season’s fashion trends, bought my father a bow-tie. Believe me when I say that the bow-tie is back, and this time with a crazily colorful vengeance. British brand Charles Olive encourages the once-aristocratic neckwear that has now evolved into a stylish statement. The collection from the Charles Olive Lookbook features non-traditional patterns of tiled rectangles, simple yet vibrant, in a variety of blues, aquamarines, paired even with dashes of yellow and orange. The combination of the timeless accessory with a contemporary flair makes these bow-ties stand out from the crowd. How about one of these adventurous bow-ties for your New Year’s Eve outfit?
