  2. How to choose a butterfly suit?

Sometimes, there are promotions in our store in which we give our customers different gifts, including stylish butterflies.

So, I noticed that many who decide to take advantage of the offer are lost when it comes to choosing a butterfly.

And this is quite understandable, because the choice or tie, and those that will be stylishly combined with clothing, is not a simple matter.

And if a person acquires an improper butterfly, then he may not like it and he will not wear it ...

Or, even worse, it will be worn, but instead of elegance and style, a butterfly will make it look absurd. (By the way, I am sure that for this very reason many men are afraid to wear a bow tie and never even tried to try it on)

So, first I will write a few words about when to wear butterflies.

Here it is important to remember that male butterflies appeared as an alternative to ties and symbolize the “challenge” of everyday life and generally accepted rules and norms in clothing.

Therefore, people who wear butterflies emphasize their individuality, self-confidence and independence from the opinions of others.

This means that a bow tie can be worn in any setting and with any clothing, and not just for special occasions.

The next thing to consider is the color, appearance and material of the butterfly.

The combination of colors is quite a big topic, and you can write a lot about it, so I will not delve into it now, but I will share only the main rules.

  1. The most reliable option is a black butterfly.
  2. Black color is combined with clothes of any color and is appropriate in any setting.
  3. The color of the butterfly should be darker than the shirt.
  4. When choosing a color butterfly, you must make sure that the color will be combined with the color of the clothes or accessories. (The reverse is also possible, when the color of the butterfly contrasts strongly with the color of the clothes.)
  5. Colors such as red, blue and green go well with a white shirt.

If we talk about the material, it is important here that the material of the butterfly is the same or similar to the material of clothing.

It is worth paying attention to the type of butterfly. There are butterflies that need to be tied up with your own hands (like a tie), and there are already knotted ones that are only regulated in length. Ready-made butterflies are more comfortable, but independently knotted always look more stylish and elegant.

Another important tip: always try on a butterfly.


In addition to the combination of colors and clothes, the butterfly should be in harmony with your appearance and image in general.

And the last, most important rule : experiment.

Do not be afraid to try different options. Good way to quickly develop your sense of style is to test different combinations of clothes in practice.

This also works with a selection of butterflies. Just take and try on all the options and see which one is most harmoniously combined with your appearance.
