Choosing a Bow Tie for Your Child
Bow ties have become an increasingly stylish part of fashion in recent years. Due in part thanks to hipsters and basketball players sporting “the nerdy look,” it seems like everyone is now accessorizing with a bow tie. This is especially true for children and young boys. Continue reading for a few pointers in what to look for when purchasing childrens bow ties.
One of the first things to consider when buying childrens bow ties are how easy you think it will be to get it on your child. If you believe your child will be extremely accommodating and easy when allowing you to tie their tie for them, you can go with a real bow tie that requires being tied. This is even better if your child is eagerly enthusiastic, and desires learning to tie their own bow tie. However, most children may not have the patience to deal with a real bow tie. When this is the case, consider a bow tie that clips on. These are the best type of ties when it comes to young children who may not share the same sense of style as their parents.
The second factor to consider when purchasing a bow tie for your child is what color(s) you should get. Some of the more fashionable styles of bow ties include wild colors and patterns. This is great if your child is trying to make a statement, or if you are a parent who has a bold individualistic style. However, some more conservative parents will prefer a simple bow tie that is one solid color. Either way, you can find a variety of colors, solid and multi, for your child. This choice may be further influenced by when and where your child will be wearing their bow tie. For example, if it is to church or a wedding, something simple and solid would probably work best. But if your child is wearing a bow tie to school or out with friends, one of the more stylish colored bow ties could be a great choice. You will also want to keep in mind other accessories and main colors in the rest of your outfit. A tie can beautifully complement your outfit, but it can also look tacky if the colors do not work well together.
The last factor to consider for your child’s bow tie is the width of the bow. As you begin to look at children’s bow ties, you will notice that the tie width can be found either very thick and wide or quite slim and skinny. These ties look well depending on the type of collar and shirt you are wearing. For example, wider bow ties look great with short-sleeve button-down shirts, while skinner ties look great with skinny dress shirts.
There is certainly a lot to consider when purchasing a bow tie for your child. However, if done properly you can find a stylish and fashionable look to outfit them in. No matter their age, bow ties are becoming popular in a variety of fashions, styles and colors that are sure to fit the look they are going for.
