One item used as formal wear that has remained constant in form is the bow tie.

Many musicians, artists and politicians have been seen sporting bow ties in recent years, and celebrity athletes have joined the fold. The preppy college look has hit the high street with a bang, bringing these fabulous neckties back into fashion. The range of celebrities including pop and rap stars flaunting these garments has increased and set trends for men (and women) across the globe, in fact take a trip to the trendiest haunts in your local town or city and you may come across a few bow ties. It is the accessory that adds quirkiness to daywear and formality to eveningwear.
