Blue Bow Ties

Blue Bow Ties

Most Americans’ favorite color, blue soothes the spirit with its references to the limitless sky and the deep, rolling ocean. A blue bow tie indicates personal restraint, a willingness to consider opinions from all sides before taking action. In contemporary times, blue signifies masculinity. Wisdom is commonly associated with rich blue hues–maybe that’s why it’s one of the most office-friendly hues. A blue bow tie doesn’t necessarily try to rock the boat, but it exudes competence and stability, traits that any serious student, teacher, employee, or employer are keen on communicating to the people around them. The marketing community uses blue to elicit consumer emotional responses like feeling assured in the hands of corporate genius, and it is increasingly popular in the development of social media apps.

You may be sifting through your closet, thinking about what shirt will offer the perfect landscape for your blue bow tie. Well, for better or worse, most of your shirts are going to pair well with blue. Its complementary color, yellow, firmly balances the coolness of blue–mild yellows work best so as to not overpower the soft-spoken but intellectual hue. But blue also pairs well with its analogous colors: pale blue and blue-ish purple. An earth tone, blue will blend smoothly with all shades of brown–try to strike a balance in intensity by pairing a navy blue bow tie with a lighter shade of brown, or even tan. Speaking of neutral colors, blue also takes a liking to khaki and gray of all shades–these conservative pairings will help you come across as professional yet stylish.

Since blue is so identifiably cool, its lighter shades make for a great summertime color. It’ll be easy to pair with other common summer looks, like pastel color schemes. It competes against the beating of sun rays and offers visual reprieve from associations to heat. If you wear a blue bow tie in the winter, make sure it’s a rich blue, like navy or Yale blue. People tend to become a little more pale in the cold, as the red hues contract from skin tone, and a pale blue in the winter is likely to cause someone to shiver out of instinct. To cause the most striking contrast, don a blue bow tie and a white button up–white won’t hide the subtlety of blue, so you can be sure to show off the best of whatever shade you decide to wear.
