National Bow Tie Day is August 28th. It’s the only holiday that celebrates this underrated accessory. This is the day to get out your favorite bow tie and show off to everyone how stylish and classy you are. You’ll look great with this accessory, even if you wear it with jeans. Today, we are celebrating these timeless fashion accessories and all those who wear them.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL BOOW TIE DAY

The bow tie has been a symbol of elegance and class since time immemorial or at least since the 19th century. The bow tie was a symbol of social status, whether you were born into a wealthy family or are well-known in intellectual circles for the quality of your intellect and wit.

Maybe not so excessive. The bow tie, despite its humble beginnings, has become a symbol of status and prestige in many social circles. It is interesting to note that the first bowties were worn by Croatian mercenaries in the Thirty Years War of the 17th Century. 

Neckties with mirror scarf knots were required by soldiers. The trend was popularized in Paris by the French, who took inspiration from this somewhat fringed and scandalous source before spreading to the rest of the fashion-conscious world.

The bow tie became an integral part of formal wear and a popular choice for doctors and medical professionals. The shortage of materials and people to make them eventually led to the decline in the popularity of the tie. It’s not surprising that the bow tie survived among Bond villains and ballet goers alike.

 The bow tie is still worn at black-tie events and, ironically enough, by hipsters. National Bow Tie Day is therefore a celebration of all the history and symbolism that has been tightly packed into one beautiful knot.
