{fit to be tied: follow up}

Standard

In response to my post from earlier this month:
{fit to be tied}

Ladies and gentlemen, I did it.

I rocked a necktie, for an entire day.

It was great!
Actually, I think for the first time in my life I was jealous of men and their tie-wearing ease.
Fleeting jealousy, it was.

So here was my Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 outfit:

saint patrick's day fashion, women wearing neckties, green skinny tie, skinny tie, girl wearing tie, green tie

Slightly awkward.. Green beer in hand would help this picture tremendously.

Keys to rocking a necktie confidently:
1) Go bold, go bright: choose a tie/blouse/blazer which is a color you wear well, or a in traditionally feminine color
2) Dress it up: over do the accessories which scream you (in my case, hair-clip + statement ring + bangles)
3) Details, people: I chose this top over a seersucker pink button down because of the plaid cuffs and collar. Wearing the tie at a looser fit also made this a winner for me.

Bottom line: I WILL BE WEARING TIES.
And I’d love to work some bow ties in there too, if I could find the perfect pattern.

Until next time, get out there and try something new! You might just like it.
