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 @globalurbanwanderer  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.

“For me, Damen + Hastings is a brand for guys who care about looking good and feeling good about what they wear and less about what’s the trend of the moment.

They value fit, quality and versatility above everything, so that’s what we set out to create.”
