It’s safe to say that the classic bolo tie — the official neckwear of Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico — is no longer restricted to western cowboys and has become the go-to accessory for both men and women. There is no doubt that it is having its moment under the global spotlight.

More people than ever before are flaunting their western ties with casual outfits as well as classy, formal ensembles. And why not? There is room to experiment and they are available in a wide variety of styles and colors. However, as with every other accessory, there are right and wrong ways to flaunt bolo ties. In this blog, we will share some pointers so that you can pay homage to bolo ties without making a fashion faux pas. Here they are:


Let's just get it out of the way - bolo ties and open-collared polo t-shirts don’t go well together. Western bolo animal ties are very versatile but also have a distinct look. That is why it would be a good idea to tread carefully while planning your outfits. Without a doubt, such ties work wonders when paired with button-up t-shirts.

If you are wearing a collared shirt, make sure that you don’t leave your bolo tie hanging casually on your neck. Ideally, it should be placed beneath the collar, with the slide in place.

In addition to this, if you are wearing western ties with huge, ornamental slides to work, you are doing it wrong. Take the occasion and location into consideration while choosing a bolo tie for yourself.

Coming to the length of the cords, they shouldn’t reach your belt! We believe that it should not go beyond 3-4 inches of your chest. And yes, don’t let your beard hide the statement piece of the bolo tie - the slide.


Wearing bolo ties with denim shirts is a winning look that we swear by! However, don’t restrict yourself to this alone. For casual occasions, you can always flaunt loose western ties with plain t-shirts/tank-tops with a blazer or denim jacket over them. In this case, you can also experiment with a number of stone choices, such as African jade, amber, howlite white buffalo, and of course, turquoise. If you want to personalize your look, Western animal bolo ties with sculpted models of animals such as wolves, elks, and eagles are the way to go. These showcase your intimate connection with nature and add elegance to your outfits.

Then of course, there is the traditional style of wearing western bolo ties. When adorned with smart formal shirts and tuxedos, you end up grabbing a lot of eyeballs!

Women can flaunt their individuality and unique style by opting for black bolo ties with silver slides and cord tips. Not only is this a classy look, but it does away with the need for additional bling. Wear it loosely around your neck with your favorite dresses. Ditch your sneakers and slide into your closed shoes or heels to create a breezy, effortless look.
