5 Ways to Wear a Tie According to the Fall 2020 Runways, Celebrities, and Street Style
Stuffy office attire might be on the outs, but don’t disregard those traditional menswear ties altogether. During the most recent women’s fall 2022 collections, Windsor knots were seen on the runways at Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Kenzo, Raf Simons, and Sportmax—the label’s full suit-and-tie look was worn by Zendaya just recently for this year’s Oscars after-party. But the cool girls in ties we saw didn’t end there. In fact, more than a handful of guests—myself and many other women included—styled an effortlessly cool, loosely worn tie outside of the shows.
The first step of wearing a tie, of course, is learning how to tie it. The second, in my opinion, is way less confusing and all the more fun: figuring out how you’d like to style it. Ironically, when a woman wears a tie, it can give a totally opposite impression than the accessory’s reputation as professional attire. Instead, it generates a rather cool, laid-back style statement, especially when worn sans blazer or suit jacket. Not to mention, the genderless accessory was dubbed one of the must-try trends of the Fall 2022 season according to Vogue Runway’s trend report, so to get ahead of the trend, we’ve pulled together five inspiring ways to style one now.
