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.

How To Accessorize A Summer Plaid Blazer

Check Out This Fresh Take On Accessorizing A Summer Blazer

How To Accessorize a Blue Plaid Blazer

Summer Plaid Blazer

Midnight Blue Self Tie Bow Tie

Linen Pocket Square in White and Blue 

Camel Knit Skinny Tie

Take your Summer Style Strategy to the next level with a designer plaid patterned summer blazer. Accessorizing a patterned, lightweight blazer can be dumbfounding if you are in the habit of only wearing ties and bow ties with business suits.  No worries, we have you covered.

We have hand-picked some of our favorite casual summer chic accessories to pair with a summer plaid blazer.  For a casual look, we like to mix patterns and love this Midnight Blue Self Tie Bow Tie paired with color coordinated plaids.  For the most casual, yet polished look, opt to accessorize soley with a color trimmed pocket square.    And if you’re feeling daring, pick out a secondary or tertiary color in the blazer and find an accessory that matches that.  In this case, we picked the burnt camel and picked out a skinny knit tie that handsomely coordinates with the color palette. Accessories should never be exclusive to business wear and  instead, should be shared with all your menswear pieces.  Sharing is caring.
