When you’re stuck working from home for an indefinite time, it’s hard to feel polished. Why not slap on a tie? After all, it has always been an iconic part of men’s clothing dating back to the 16th century, thanks to King Louis XII’s love for neckties. Throughout the decades, they’ve evolved from 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.
Finding a suitable group of ties can a little overwhelming, but worth the investment. The good news is most ties are timeless pieces 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. Check out 12 of our favorites.
