Woman in NecktieWomen and ties have had a long history together. Even though many think that ties are primarily men’s wear, women have also featured predominantly throughout history with the modern tie. The first instance in which some form of the modern tie was worn by women was during the Second World War, when women featured predominantly in offices. Their main function was to write down important messages that were relayed during the operations, and they had to follow proper dressing attire. They were supposed to wear a formal dress shirt, with a knee length skirt and a short tie in order to determine their rank and operational status. Read the rest of this entry »

White Tie Dress CodeJust like a black tie dress code, a white tie dress code is also reserved for a highly formal event. The difference is that a white tie event is more formal. Events that usually render a white tie dress code are royal gatherings and highly exclusive social and evening events and are only considered appropriate to start after six pm. So, if a black tie dress code symbolizes formality, then we can consider that a white tie event is the epitome of all formality.

There are very specific rules and nuanced details that should be followed in order to dress right for an event that requires white tie attire. The attire that is associated with a white tie dress code is a tailcoat, white vest, white shirt and white bow tie. Unlike the black tie dress code, which underwent several innovations and changes since its inception, the rules for a white tie dress code have not changed much. Read the rest of this entry »

Black Tie Dress CodeA black tie dress code is usually reserved for formal events, such as weddings, going to the opera, or a formal dinner. When people think of black tie attire, the first thing that comes to mind is a black tuxedo with a black bow tie. What does a ‘black tie dress code’ mean precisely?  It is a term generally used to describe the attire for a man to a formal affair taking place after five pm. Its style is more formal than business casual and less formal than white tie, usually entailing a black wool suit along with crisp white shirt and a black tie.

While the colors for a black tie dress code have remained virtually the same, today men have more choices that allow them to include their own personal style and preferences for an outfit that has prescribed rules. If you make sure to follow the specifically laid-out guidelines, you will be spared from making a fashion faux pas. Read the rest of this entry »

History of the NecktieNeckties have become a prominent of daily attire for men, especially professional working men. Neckties are worn on collared shirts, suits and are also being used as a fashion icon nowadays. However, the history of the necktie dates way back to the time of the Chinese and the Romans, who used to wear it as a part of their uniform, or as a type of an emblem which was used to discern their group or faction. Throughout the centuries, some type of neck wear, different than the standard outdoor scarf, could be traced through, but it did not exactly resemble the modern day necktie, although it is said that such neckwear managed to lay down the foundations of the necktie that we see at present.
