As our quarantine life goes on indefinitely, it’s hard to feel polished when we’re stuck working from home. Why not slap on a tie? After all, it’s been an iconic menswear dating back to the 16th century, thanks to King Louis XII’s love for neckties. Throughout the decades, they’ve evolved as a status symbol for nobility to a white collar uniform. They’re an easy way to make a statement, revitalize an old suit, and add some character to your formal attire, or even an oxford shirt for a sophisticated look. Don’t let a pandemic wipe out its essential status.
Finding the right group of ties can a little overwhelming, but worth the investment. The good news is most ties are timeless, and can be worn for all seasons. When looking to expand your tie collection, it’s always best to secure classic styles (like solids and stripes), before branching out to seasonal prints and colors like pastels and florals. Here are 10 of our favorites.
