Casualizing The Necktie
When you think necktie, you think suit. However, there are many ways to style a tie without a formal look. There are plenty of ways to dress down neckwear for a casual day in the office, birthday dinner out in the city or a holiday gathering at Grandma's.
You can start by searching for a tie that offers a relaxed look and feel. Find something that has some texture like cotton or linen. Both fabrications are great options for Spring. Floral and plaid patterns are great go-to designs to style with denim, relaxed chinos, or shorts. And yes, you can wear a tie with shorts. At d+h we believe that sometimes the risk is best worth taking. See below how @marcos.covos
styled his short + tie look effortlessly.
Finalizing your look with additional accessories like a baseball cap or set of leather bracelets can help sway an outfit to be more laid back, too. See how @clint_lucas
pictured below paired the d+h addison twill baseball cap
along with their neckwear. As for a jacket, it's as simple as layering on a basic cardigan, zip front hoodie, denim jacket, or nixing a jacket altogether.
