Menswear has been TAKING OVER our lives as of late! We don’t know about you guys, but we cannot stop buying button-up blouses and loafers—it’s probably because the outfit options are limitless with menswear-inspired ensembles. You can dress them up or dress them down for any occasion, but one of our FAVE (and ballsy!) accessories to pair with any outfit is a bow tie. Large, small, floppy, bright, or subtle—it doesn’t matter what kind of bow tie you decide to sport, it’s all about how you wear it. We picked three bloggers who ooze so much coolness in their menswear outfits, and BOY, are we jealous!
Bestie Konisis of The Capricious Club
Manila-based blogger Bestie (cutest name ever) did an ENTIRELY vintage menswear ensemble. She sported a denim button-up shirt, black jeans, leopard print skinny belt, beige and brown oxfords, quilted black chain bag, and a red bow tie. To make her outfit a bit more feminine, she piled on multicolored bracelets and oversized rings, added a touch of pink to her pout, did THE most gorge side braid, and kept her bow tie teeny-tiny.

Victoria Leeds hails from England, and we immediately fell in love with her style the moment we saw her! She’s constantly switching up her look, which means she’s never short of great accessories. Victoria wears a wide-brim black hat, flip-up sunglasses, a black Zara top, a floppy red bow tie, thrifted denim shorts, black tights, and classic black Dr. Martens boots. Her floppy bow tie makes her entire ensemble so awesomely retro-chic, it’s RIDIC.

New Zealand gal Carla is legit making us jealous in this ensemble! She wears a beige bucket hat with a white chiffon button-up, black blazer, cuffed trouser shorts, black and white Overland oxfords, and adds a touch of color with a maroon striped Dangerfield bow tie. Her outfit is clean, crisp, and totally cop-worthy.
Also, we couldn’t NOT include this GIF of Victoria’s numerous bow tie outfits. Amazing.
