Despite living in the land of spring seersucker and smocking — also known as The South — my boys aren’t exactly preppy. And getting them to wear a bow tie on Easter seemed like an impossibility, until I found RougeBox. This little gem of an Etsy shop has amazing pop culture bow ties my boys and I can’t help but love.

Owner Joanne Kim creates these handmade ties in Los Angeles, and that big-city cool comes through in every piece. Whether your boy is more a fan of Thor, Star Wars, Wimpy Kid, or Dr. Seuss, I can’t imagine you won’t find one they’ll love — and agree to wear.

Our girls are in luck too, by the way, since any of these bow ties can be made into a hair bow. Pretty awesome, if, say your girl wants to rock a Marvel comics bow instead of gingham or seersucker with her Easter dress. Which, of course, I fully encourage.

Visit RougeBox‘s Etsy shop to find dozens of cool bow ties for boys for $7.50 that will add some real pop to your kid’s wardrobe. All orders ship in 1–3 days, so you can still get them in time for Easter. But we recommend contacting the shop before completing your purchase just to be sure.
