I think what bow tie you wear depends on what type of shirt you wear. If you go to a suit store you can get some suggestions from the staff as to what colours compliment.
If you are going with shirts you already own, what colours do you have? A Blue shirt and a red bowtie would be really nice. A black shirt with a white bow tie also looks nice.
Really with a black or white shirt, you can pretty much do any colour bowtie. Keep in mind what you will be wearing with the shirt. If you choose to wear a cardigan over the dress shirt, keep in mind the colours of the tie and cardigan should compliment each other. Same goes if you wear a jacket or a vest.
Personally, if you are wearing a solid colour shirt, I would go for a more patterned bowtie, something that will show your personality and style :)1
