I have said before how my family is pretty casual over the holidays- we don't break out our ball gowns and black ties for our get togethers, so my husband knew he wanted to be casual. The whole bow tie thing was his idea- out of the blue one day he asked what my thought was on bow ties- I personally love them-with that, he gave me free reign (yippy!) to put together a look for him! I made sure to choose things that I particularly liked on guys in general but knew he wasn't sure about! (turns out he loved it all!)
After several different purchases, some trying one at home, and some mixing and matching, we put together a really stylish, handsome, put-together-but-casual look that is totally holiday gathering appropriate. You could even swap out the jeans for a casual pair of khakis to dress it up a bit more for a casual work place!
I also think that bow ties aren't just for suits or tuxedos (as you can see below). It's so easy to to create a casual look with a bow-tie. Think of it as a really cute scarf or a fab pair of shoes for a girl!
