Please tell us that you or your significant other are wearing a bow tie right this second? If not, you’re going to need to go home and remedy that, because it’s National Bow Tie Day.
Since the day is essentially a holiday at Southern Living, we’re celebrating by wearing our finest. In our halls, bow knows. Three looks from us, to you:
Editor-in-Chief (or shall we call him Bow-Tie-Wearer-In-Chief) Lindsay Bierman sports a vintage Brooks Brothers tie. “As an undergrad at Georgetown, I often wore this as an intern on Capitol Hill. As a grad student at UVA, I included it in my wardrobe rotation for tailgates. I still love and wear it today.”
Photographer Robbie Caponetto can be spotted wearing a Billy Reid bow tie while shooting photos all over the South. “In my personal style evolution, I’ve gone from tie dye to bow tie. I love timelessness of a bow tie.”
Test Kitchen Professional Norman King is proud to wear a bow tie made by his mom, Debi, even when he’s testing recipes in our kitchen. “I love wearing a one-of-a-kind look, and it’s extra special because it’s from my mom.”
