How to wear a bowtie casually for a high school student

Hi! I'm completely new to this forum (joined today), so I'm not to familiar as to where this topic would go, so I put it here. Sorry for any inconvenience.

So as the name suggests, I'm going to attempt to start occasionally wearing bowties to school.

Just a little background that I think will be helpful.

I do generally dress well for school no matter the occasion, and am considered by my friends to be the best dressed in the school.
That being said, I don't think that wearing bowties to school will be too out there for me.

The main question is, how should I go about wearing a bowtie to school, and do you guys think I could pull it off? My avatar is a picture of me (I'm the guy).

My wardrobe as of now consists of several cardigans, blazers, and a vest, plus a variety of colors of V-Neck t-shirts. The cardigans are black, dark grey, and really light grey. The blazers are one navy blue, and one short sleeved light grey (this is the one I usually wear because it's more casual). My vest is a slightly darker grey than my blazer (not so dark as they don't match, but not exactly the same color either).

So what are your suggestions? Should I try it, how should I, what kind of bowtie(s) should I get, and should I add clothes to my wardrobe to match my cardigan? (I recently got a job so I should be able to afford low to mid priced clothing)

Thanks!



Oh and just as a note, I do realize that there's a couple other threads on this topic, but I wanted to make a new one so it'd be more personalized for me (sorry if that sounds kind of selfish).

I don't really think that this is a quick question, because I'm kind of expecting quite a bit of advice, but I'll still post it there anyway. Thanks!

maybe try posting in mens fashion? I think bowties are unneeded unless need be.

I'm not sure how you can pull off a casual look for a bowtie. May I recommend a slim tie instead?
