Bow ties are always a great addition to any outfit because they add flirty flair. Recently, and without consciously thinking about it, I have been wearing clothing and accessories with bow ties on them.

My first feature is great because it’s a masculine shoe with a little bow tie on top. I love this combination because this comfortable moccasin is a perfect light blue. This is a dream combination for your vacations and an elegant walking shoe.

Need a feminine summery pair of thongs for your warm outings? I adore Prada’s thong sandal. This shoe is effortless and a great slip-on option to pair with a summer dress.

For some reason, summer requires me to carry a bigger bag. I don’t know what it is, but perhaps it’s the extra items I feel I need to carry along for the day like sunscreen, hat, water, etc. Since it is hard to prevent bigger bags from looking too bulky and odd, I recommend getting a soft looking one like Kate Spade’s Small Coat Shoulder Bag. The natural and black accented bag makes it simple to carry along with any outfit.

I am obsessed with this funky Red Valentino bag. I love the oversized bow with the ibisco color. This bag is flawless. Tote it around or strap it on your shoulder to complete your bright summer look.

Giuseppe Zanotti has done it again! The ultimate shoe guru has managed to make the ultimate fierce shoes. Leopard summer sandals with a side bow to complete this sassy shoe. I can’t wait to strut around in these.

As the black and white trend persists, I have to showcase Madonna’s miraculous black and white, sky high pumps that have a bow to balance out the assertive, bold look of the shoe.

There are plenty of neat shirts with bows on them but this one is an exciting print and a great bow around the neck.
