Bow Ties for Women: Awesome or Awful?

Bow ties! They're not just for men anymore, but is that a good thing? More and more designers these days are coming up with creative takes on the bow tie, traditionally a male accessory, but this time with the other sex in mind.

Women can do anything men can do, but does that mean they have to dress like men, too? Bow ties have been around for centuries, first popularized by the French in the 18th century. They can certainly add a bit of flair to an outfit, with styles available in floral patterns, stripes, polka dots and almost any other variation. Are bow ties for women a good look -- or are we just dressing our ladies to look like waitresses and Dr. Who at this point?

    I don't think that women should wear ties. I don't find it attractive or appealing. And I don't think hipsters should wear them either... I think they're nerdy and should be reserved for scientists and professors...

    Especially when worn with a sharp skirted suit or a vest-skirt combo with a well-starched, buttoned-up blouse, a bow tie on a woman would be exquisitely sharp and sophisticated! I'm a guy who's in suits and bow ties daily, so perhaps I'm partial.

    i wear normal ties quite alot as i think on a woman they're kind of quirky. i would wear a bow tie but everything else has to be just right so its obvious you're making a style statement

    Sort of. I don't like that model's bowtie, because it's so obviously clip-on. But I think the right bowtie, done properly, can be pulled off wonderfully by a woman.

    Bowties are bowties. They can't be gender-specific.
