Some snooty bloggers frown upon clipon bowties, saying they're for infants or children only, which is nothing but a bunch of silliness. My dad wore them when I was a kid, and he loved them for their ease and sensibility.
We've actually seen some clever girls wear these for a fantastic prep collegiate look, worn with a pristine white blouse, v neck sweater (or sweater vest), short plaid skirt, and enormous eyeglasses. Very studious. Very nerd-cool. We added an image to illustrate how cute they are on girls!
And now, with Young Sheldon, bow ties are back on their way up again!
