The tie is a significant piece of cloth, which makes a man classic and elegant. Just as a necklace enhances a woman’s beauty, the tie (the epitome of class) in men’s neck makes them more remarkable and dapper. Whether you do not work in the office, still every man has to wear ties several times in his life. I have noticed that most men do not know enough about ties and just learning to wear a tie is not enough, there are many things (tie tips) you should know so that you can jazz up a tie with perfection.
So here I am going to give you some amazing tie tips which will be very helpful for you to make your tie more attractive.
Before jumping on the tie tips, you should know some basics about the neckties so you can wear them properly.
Where/When To Wear
This question often becomes a very big dilemma for a man – when he should wear a necktie and when he should not?
Let’s make it clear :
(a) Wedding –
You should wear a slightly formal or plain tie at weddings.
(b) Office –
If you are a businessman or work in an office, then you should wear a tie with a suit or a shirt.
Keep in mind that you always wear a solid formal tie in the office.
(c) Professional work –
If you are in a profession where you need to look super professional, such as salesmen, actors, lecturers, etc., then you should wear a tie.
(d) Party –
You can also wear a tie at parties, where you want to look a little more attractive.
Best Tie Tips To Make A Tie More Attractive
So now I am going to tell you some such tie hacks which will make you more tremendous and classic.
1. Tie Bar/Clip –
It is a very small metal pin that is used to attach to the shirt with the tie, so while walking, getting up, or sitting, your tie stays in place and your look does not deteriorate.
Most people who wear a tie, do not give much importance to the tie bar but you should pay attention to it and you should wear a silver tie bar.
Not only with suits but whenever you wear a tie, whether it is a shirt, you should essentially wear a tie bar.
Always wear a tie bar on the third or fourth button of your shirt.
2. Length of The Tie –
When most people wear ties, some people keep the tie below the belt and some keep it above their belly-button.
Both these situations are wrong your tie should not be too long nor too short.
Whenever you wear a tie, ideally your tie should be one or half an inch above your belt.
One more thing, there is no trick/shortcut to tie a tie at the exact length, it depends on your body structure and tie.
So you have to find the right length by tying a new tie a few times.
3. Dimple –
A very minor but effective element of a tie.
Making a dimple on your tie knot makes you look more sophisticated and attention-grabbing.
It is a sign on your tie that you are not a careless man, you are a person who takes care of small things very closely.
Making a nice dimple on your tie will take barely one and a half minutes, so take care of it.
Don’t do it every time, only on some special occasions when you want to make yourself look more attractive then make a dimple on your tie and you will feel that this little thing has made you more impressive and elegant.
4. Perfect Knot –
Most people only pay attention to the length of their tie while tying and do not pay attention to how the knot looks.
They leave the knot loose or do not shape that appropriately and this is their biggest mistake.
About 80% of the charm of a tie is in its knot, so you should be focused on it.
Note that you tighten the knot perfectly while tying the tie, so it will not loosen.
After tying the tie, give it the flawless shape and perfection to the knot.
It should look like a triangle and its corners should be tightened well.
5. The Windsor Knot –
The most versatile and elegant necktie knot is known as the Windsor knot.
If you are a government employee, bank employee, salesman, private worker, etc or you are a person who does not believe much in experimenting with different things, then this is the easiest and best tie knot for you.
you can wear the Windsor knot on almost every occasion or event.
The Windsor knot is the most common, classic, and neat necktie knot, but if you want to try some other type of knots besides this, then you can try the Eldredge necktie knot, which looks very stylish.
If you are a person who does not have a long neck, then the hand knot will work best for you but still, I would say that “there is nothing more versatile than a crisp tie with a Windsor knot.”
6. Pocket Square –
A pocket square is a small piece of fabric that is used to place in the pocket of a suit, which looks great.
There is nothing wrong if you keep it in your suit pocket but the mistake is made when you completely match it with the tie.
Please do not make this mistake because when you carry the same colored pocket square as your tie, it looks very old fashioned.
I suggest keeping your style simple, there is no need to keep a pocket square if you wear a tie or if you love the pocket square too much then do not wear a necktie with the pocket square.
If you want to wear both of them then don’t go for the same color.
