Gentlemen, invest in neckties. Now. The necktie is the perfect accessory to spice up your outfit without going all out. Whether you’re driving to your office or just attending an event of some sort, a necktie will pull your outfit together in the subtlest way.
As this Fashionisto shows, a necktie can transform your outfit from being plain to fashionable. This Fashionisto dons a white Stussy long sleeve button-up, cuffed khaki chinos, black lace-up Vans shoes, a gold watch and a camouflage necktie. Normally, when people cuff their pants, they’d rather not show their socks; however, there seems to be a growing trend among men to embrace their socks with rolled up pants like this Fashionisto exemplifies. I love the contrast between his laid back vibe, given that he didn’t tuck in his shirt, and his upbeat necktie. Neckties are the easiest way to add color or pattern to one’s attire. Men, you don’t always have to conform to the solid navy blue or black neckties. Have fun and pick a necktie with vibrant colors or an eccentric pattern. As you can see, this Fashionisto decided on a camouflage print.
Camouflage can be difficult incorporating into your outfit because you definitely don’t want to go overboard with it. Therefore, props to this Fashionisto for wisely choosing a camouflage necktie to be the subtle yet sophisticated touch to his simple outfit. The camouflage print can be found on almost every article of clothing and accessory, from backpacks to jackets to beanies. To avoid overdoing the print, it is best to pair it with solid colors. For instance, camouflage jackets have been trending for women’s apparel and can be easily matched with black skinny jeans and a white cropped tank. The camouflage print in the fashion world is not so camouflaged; it is actually the most noticeable in one’s attire. So, gents, do as this Fashionisto does and indulge in a quirky or awesomely patterned necktie. Neckties will not disappoint and will always come in handy.
