Right now, there’s nothing sexier than a cute girl wearing a bow tie. Something about the convergence of classic and modern style and the gender overlap that makes it the perfect fashion statement and understated accessory.
Although bow ties reappeared on catwalks late last year, this particular trend has really only started creeping into the lesbian fashion scene over the last couple of months. Paired with the classic black and white suit, worn with a plaid shirt or simply strung around your neck above a singlet, nothing says style like a bow tie.
Get yours online from American Apparel or Etsy, or from the men’s accessory section of your local department store.

If you’re one of the many lesbians who giggled like a schoolgirl while squealing “I want one! I want one!” when you saw Tegan in her skull apron in the picture Tegan and Sara posted on Twitter earlier, I did a quick search and tracked down some websites where you can buy one for yourself. Hope you find one you like!

Yay for Fall! and Yay for hats that are perfect for Fall! Cabbie hats have made a big comeback this year, which is great because you can pretty much find a style or color to suit any outfit. From plaid, corduroy and check to striped and good old reliable black, the cabbie hat looks great with a suit on your way to work or really cute with jeans and retro t-shirt. If you’re shopping online, try searching for cabbie, golf or newsboy hats – they’re all similar.
My one tip – wear it straight! the backwards, sidewards, slightly off-center look isn’t really a ‘look’ right now.
Most department stores and several boutiques are stocking variations of the cabbie hat – I saw a big range in Sears and Guess was modeling them in the window. I picked mine up at H&M for $10.
