When it comes to pulling off bow ties without making a big statement, simple colors and patterns are everything. Sure, it’s great to have a couple of bow ties that are outrageous and fun, but you’ll need just as many that are subtle. With the fall around the corner, fashionable subtlety is something that should be honed now before you get caught in the cold. The first thing to look for is something in a muted tone like the simple grey in the J. Crew bow tie we’ve chosen for #6 on our list. The slight stripe is also simple and will keep you from looking like a southern dandy–not that there is anything wrong with that of course. We love wool ties because the texture is the perfect tweak to an outfit that gives a very sophisticated feel, which is exactly what you’re looking for this fall. When you add all the ingredients together, this little number by J. Crew is exactly what you need if you’re going to be throwing on a bow tie this fall. You can pick this up at J. Crew, of course, for $52.
