The tie has become a part of women's fashion and actually a lady wearing
a tie can look simply stunning. I agree, you'll need some self-confidence
to wear this mannish attire but you will be amazed at the spice it will add
to your look. There are numerous ways to wear, combine and play with your tie.
Remember the Annie Hall look sported by Diane Keaton in 1977? Her tie,
man's shirt and waistcoat, designed by Ralph Lauren, was such a success
because she made a fashion statement and at the same time the outfit
was wearable. Her wide ties, combined with men's shirts and waistcoats,
became a very popular female look in the seventies.
These days however more relaxed ways to wear a tie are popular.
Women can wear it very loose around an unbuttoned shirt collar, on top
of a T-shirt or tank top and even on top of a turtleneck. Almost every-
thing is allowed and some surprisingly stunning looks are being created.
Actually a necktie should be an accessory that is part of every fashion
minded woman's wardrobe. It can replace a necklace or another piece of jewellery.
There are no rules when it comes to ties worn by women. Experiment with
any combination you can think of and you are bound to find great styles and gorgeous new looks.
How about combining a necktie with a polo shirt or maybe even two layered polo
shirts? There are many more options: polo shirt + button front shirt, shirt + cardigan,
shirt + V-neck sweater, two shirts, ... . Your imagination is the only limit!
If you have very feminine features, the buttoned up collar and tie look
can be just perfect for you. The contrast between the masculine attire
and your feminine looks will make many heads turn. Make the feminine-
masculine look complete with a boyishly short haircut. You can make a
strong fashion statement with your short cropped hairstyle, the nicely
buttoned up male shirt and the tie!
Of course you don't need to cut your hair short before you can wear a
tie! Anyone can look good with a necktie. It's only a matter of experi-
menting and finding the style that suits you best. You don't even have
to wear a real tie to approach this look. Instead of a real tie you can do similar things
with a long scarf. Use a soft silk or polyester scarf and not a cotton or knitted one.
For many the big question is "How to tie a tie?"
All those looks with beautiful men's shirts and ties are very attractive, but one thing that
keeps many girls from imitating the look is that they don't know how to tie a tie. Many
boyfriends and fathers don't know how to tie a necktie properly, so it is only normal that
young ladies don't know how to do it.
Click here for some simple instructions on how to do it properly. Don't forget however
that ladies are lucky and don't always need to tie their tie in a proper way. Often it will
be prettier and more trendy to wear it loose or on something else but a button front shirt.
