Bolo ties may not be seen often on the streets of Boston or Chicago, but they are the official neckwear of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. A true symbol of southwestern style, the bolo tie has come a long way from its beginnings.

In the 30’s, bolo ties became a more realistic alternative to the cloth tie when traveling in the southwestern areas of America. As their popularity grew, so did the variety of styles. Rhinestones, turquoise, precious gems, and elaborate features were added to create the most unique looks.

Though the frequent usage of bolo ties faded as cities grew, the representation of the tie remained. Southwestern, rugged, rodeo, and truly cowboy-style is the image the bolo tie still maintains.

Women’s bolo ties in particular give off an incredibly unique and intriguing look. The delicate nature of a turquoise bolo tie on a woman contrasts with the stereotypical ruggedness in a beautiful way. Worn with a white button-down, a denim jacket, or any traditional rustic look will bring a flair of wild to any outfit. The evolution of the bolo tie continues through the women’s unique wearing of it.
