Tartan Ties
The ties and bow ties never go out of fashion, they only change their outfits, colours and patterns. This season they are strong and with a lot of colour. Dare to play with the handkerchief. Although it has always tended to the total monochrome between tie and handkerchief, in daring is the virtue of style. Therefore, you can choose to combine prints or if you prefer to be more cautious, choose one of them with drawings and the other in a similar tone in plain.
Bow Ties
Designed as a scarf in the mid-seventeenth century, the bow ties have evolved to the point of lending themselves to all kinds of interpretations, with textures ranging from classics typical of the modern gentleman, such as Italian silks, English wool or Japanese cotton, to tartan fabrics, respectful with the environment, or even the amazing recycled wood bows (perfect for kids with knotting problems).
Tartan bow tie fits easily and works excellently to stand out for its rich texture. Tartan fabric gives a perfect touch to your dress. This season, mini prints based on flowers or animals that dictate the trend, but also the classic points and stripes will find their place among the proposals of the leading luxury brands.
Tartan pocket handkerchiefs are a perfect accessory to make a difference and score points in terms of elegance. Combining it with the tartan tie is essential, but it is not necessary that they be exactly the same colour, only colours that combine with each other, that have something in common. The handkerchiefs allow you to play a classy touch with a lot of styles, for those looking for a point of extravaganza there are really options for all tastes.
Screen Glasses
This decade is experiencing a second boom in hi-tech fashion after its first stage dedicated to the 90s, and the flat glasses with multi-coloured flat lenses, like these from Dior Homme, are a good option to complete futuristic outfits.
The straps, like the other accessories, will be filled with colour and life. The suspenders are worn in replacement of the belt, these are better in terms of feasts since they will not tighten you on the stomach area. The best occasion to wear them is when you wear a suit or a Chinese shirt and pants. Hence, completing a formal look with a touch of retro style to the last.
