Thanks for weighing in Lillian. The job interview is the most formal...
In a recent blog post Terry talked about how he got an older suit updated, re-tailored and restyled. When it come to men's fashion, the suit looks updated BUT... when he wears the suit without a tie, something is missing.
The tie adds a certain pizzazz and flash of color to a man’s outfit. Without the tie, the suit still looks good but it just doesn't pop. So I've tried to get him to stretch his logical fashion conservative self to add a little more color and flair to his wardrobe.
Terry has always liked to wear a nice watch which helps and he favors brown or cordovan/burgundy shoes and a similarly toned belt rather than black . He also doesn't mind more colorful shirts. But that was about as far as he would go.
Women have learned to accessorize outfits to add some pizzazz and demonstrate their personal style. This can be a bit of a stretch for men but is well worth the effort. I gave Terry some advice and tips to jazz up his look and he's gamely tried a few of them.
Here are six things to add individual style and pizzazz to your look without a tie:
Tip 1 - Make sure you wear a nice watch (not too much bling, a little bling goes a long way)
Tip 2 - Try a colored or bolder pattern shirt (no big lumberjack patterns)
Tip 3 - Choose a French cuff shirt with some colorful cufflinks
Tip 4 - Rather than black shoes try a nice brown or two-tone or cordovan pair of shoes (polished not distressed)
Tip 5 - Experiment with some patterned or more colorful socks
Tip 6 - Add a pocket square neatly folded or go crazy and just let it puff out of your pocket
Harry Rosen recently had a nice video that shows some ways to give a lift to a suit or jacket sans a tie.
Here is a link to the video or watch it above.
