The fashion world has for a long time been a woman’s world. Now, men are getting to it and though a rather old piece of fashion, the necktie is getting more emphasis. Men are looking for ways to incorporate the right choice of neckties in their daily wear. Not only that, they also want to make the correct knots when it comes to tying these accessories.
The first thing you should be keen on is the type of fabric. Neckties should be attractive and attention getters. To make them so, you should go for fabrics that are shinny in nature. Satin or silk will give you the best of the shines but you should be keen to make sure that the fabric is 100% satin or silk.
Patterns on the necktie can go a long way to make the tie more attractive. If you find a tie whose colors in the patterns match those of your shirt and suit, then you should be considering that also. A good idea would be to have a tie whose pattern combines the color of your shirt and that of the suit. To make it better, you can choose a tie whose dominant color is similar to that of the suit and the less dominant color to match that of the shirt.
The knot you make should also be proportional to the size of the collar. Before making the knot, you should have the shirt fully buttoned. This will help you position the tie proportionally such that you do not seem asymmetrical.
No matter what you pick, whether it be for a formal or casual occasion, make sure you have fun with it and own the look!
