It’s never the wrong time to wear ties. Ties can be appropriate during any time of the year, and in any weather condition. Bowties have come to be known as a staple for both hipsters and those men who want to be classy, yet memorable. And neckties are great for formal occasions, as well as semi-formal occasions. Both kinds of ties can provide your wardrobe with an unprecedented amount of versatility.
Every man needs to have a few ties in his wardrobe. A few solid colors of each type, and then maybe some polka dots and stripes here and there. However, take caution when dealing with heavily, confusingly patterned ties – they can actually take away from your wardrobe. Also, beware of themed ties (Spongebob, Space Jam, etc.)- any ties with a readily accessible pop culture motif can make you look childish and unappealing. It’s a sad truth.
Remember, ties are accessories, and as such, they DO NOT have to directly match your outfit. Spice things up with an unconventional pairing of both color and style. It will take your wardrobe to the next level and make tie wearing so much fun!
