Colorful Tie Bars and Monk Strap Shoes Trending At Fashion Week

Tie Bars and Monk Strap Shoes Trending At Fashion Week

 

This Fashion Week, we noticed two big trends for menswear involving color tie bars and monk strap shoes.  Everywhere we looked, we saw men in ties with all sorts of of colorful tie bars ranging from hot pinks to turquoise blues to canary yellows.  This modern trend is contemporary, fresh and incredibly fun to wear.  We also noticed that the majority of men were wearing monk strap leather shoes which have a very heritage feel to them.  We like the juxtaposition of the two most popular menswear trends and look forward to pushing the boundaries with our choices in tie bars and tie clips.

A Menswear Look That Mixes Navy Blues and Turquoise

Colorful Menswear Fashion

Navy Blue Knit Skinny Tie

Pocket Square in Mermaid Blue

Incorporate a new combination of colors into your menswear with this Featured Look of The Week that combines Navy, Turquoise Blue and White.  This statement look is anything but ordinary without looking gaudy or overdone. We love the idea of starting with a multi-color dress shirt and accessorizing with an assortment of coordinating colors.

This utilitarian and fashionable getup can be worn to an office meeting, to a date or for just about anything.  Skinny Ties have a more modern and casual association to them, making them a great option if you want to look polished but not stuffy.  The key to this savvy look is the combination of two accessories in different colors and coordinate handsomely with the shirt.

Nuts For Nautical Fashion in Menswear

Look Ultra Smart in Nautical  Inspired Fashion Ensembles

 

How To Create A Nautical Look

 

Creating a polished nautical look can easily be done with the proper palette, the right cottons and the perfect menswear accessories.  First +  foremost, create a palette of all navy blues and whites and from there, start to think about your accessories.   For accessories, you can go with a linen pocket square,  a textured polka dot skinny tie or perhaps an anchor tie. It all depends on you.

 

Designer Linen Pocket Square Nautical  Skinny Nautical Anchor Tie

 

We carry a broad assortment of navy blue menswear accessories that can pair impressively well with your nautical blazers whether they are blue linen, white cotton or gingham checkered.  The key to great nautical fashion is looking clean, posh and well accessorized in head to toe Navy and White.

 

Skinny Polka Dot Tie in Blue  Designer Linen Pocket Square in White and Blue

Mix your menswear patterns and separate your summer suiting. For example, a navy blue suit blazer can look revived and casual by being paired with white jeans or chinos.  Pair your gingham neckties with your color trimmed pocket squares.  Sky’s the limit and the seas are open, when it comes to creating great nautical inspired fashion ensembles.

We Are Mad About Madras

Complete Your Summer Look With Our Madras Plaid Skinny Tie

Summer Fashion calls for more creativity and color than Winter Fashion! Chris Nicholas of Bold Creative shows us how to capitalize on the flexibility of the summer dress code with our Textured Madras Plaid Tie from the Blackbird Resort Collection.  This modern designed necktie is 2.5″ in width and is made from a designer blend of 75% cotton and 25% silk adding to  its overall contemporary, cool casualness.

 

Madras Tie and Gingham Shirt

Chris doesn’t shy away from pairing this colorful necktie with other patterns. We particularly love it paired with this blue and white check shirt. It also looks notably dapper teamed up with a summer blazer and a bright hued pocket square if you have a meeting or event to go to.

 

Menswear Pennyloafers

Our rule of thumb is to always mix traditional pieces with modern ones. We love the juxtaposition of this modern Madras Plaid Tie paired with a pair of proper burgundy penny loafers. We want to thank Chris Nicholas of Bold Creative for bringing our Madras Plaid Tie to life with his styling skills.
