Today, every day, from school children in Nepal to businessmen in Manhattan, hundreds of millions of men wear ties in every part of the globe.
Announced by the latest trends for the next SS 2016 it is interesting to observe how the names of the trends change but the ingredients to create them are always the same.
For example, this year at Pitti Uomo, edition number 88 of last June 2015 for the men’s collections for spring /summer 2016, it is fashionable tie.
Well.. good to know!
..but when but above all.. how to wear a tie?
One day they will tell you that you grew up and finally seems to get the opportunity that you have been waiting for a long time.. your “first real job”.
Yes I know.. you’re excited and you do not know what to expect .. but the only real question that seems inexorably make you break your head at this time is: “How the hell I have to wear now?!”
Keep Calm.. here’s for you some essential and valuable tips that will guide you in choosing the perfect outfit for your first day of work!
Point one: throw away the beloved jeans&t-shirts that have characterized the long and dark period that was your adolescence .. puberty will be wiped out in an instant with the help of new and loyal allies.. a suit, a shirt and a tie.
The dress code in the workplace may, in fact, vary according to the field in which they are applied.. but these three simple and precious items should not henceforth NEVER EVER missing from the wardrobe of a respecting man in career.
The must have that can’t in any way be missing in your closet will be a dark blue suit with a white shirt and a tie, striped possibly.
The use of colors is admitted only (and I repeat ONLY) if you are under 25 years!
For most jobs, you know .. buying a dress is really easy and fast, because black or gray are almost always the first choice.
The darker is the suit, the most serious and formal feel like the wearer.. this is (almost always) true.
Even about the shirt you don’t have to think a lot. Light blue or white, possibly with discrete stripes.
The choice of the tie instead is much more difficult.
What color is fine for the office and what design? We must wear small drawings or just one color is better? But above all.. whi do we need to wear a tie?!
The basic rules are simple. The first and most important rule for the business is: you must always wear a tie!
Only in areas such as media and advertising, there are small exceptions.
But this is true only for those who make a creative work; those who work in controlling, marketing or sales must still wear a tie.
The color and the design of your tie indicate who you are..
In more conservative companies basic colors are only the dark blue and dark red. Drawings as stripes, dots, small dots or diamonds can be distinguished from the background color of the tie.
Also black can be chosen as a color, but often has a too strong contrast compared to the rest of the clothing and is therefore avoided in most cases.
Monochrome black ties are, in fact, almost entirely prohibited because are worn only during funerals or for festive evening (and certainly this is not the impression we want to give, right ?!).
The darker is the color of the tie, the smaller is its design, the more serious and formal will be the look. A dark blue tie with tiny dots of red burgundy, for example, give a very professional impression!
The use of color is not banned..
If your office atmosphere is not quite traditionalist or conservative, then it can be brought even bright colors like yellow, green, orange, fuchsia, purple, green grass and blue sky (remember not to overdo it with the colors!).
Have the courage to wear a colored tie, but combining it with a more classic shirt and dress.
Single-color ties, however, offer a sense of tranquility, but much also depends on the colors; the blue is still the favorite color for single-color ties, but please … don’t you dare ever to combine a clear blue tie with a shirt of the same color!
We must always look a bit ‘contrast in combinations.
Don’t wear brown shades.. they are always considered old and aged.
It is instead allowed to wear a tie red bordeaux that goes very well with both the blue light and the white.
Tones like mustard, olive green, beige or petrol are to be used with extreme caution as they tend not to exalt the complexion of the wearer, especially (dare I say not quite tanned) for us Europeans!
