For Fall/Winter 2016, fashionistas are officially channelling the boys and bringing the menswear inspired look into their own wardrobes. Whether an average business day for you means the boardroom, the sales floor or the studio, there’s no denying that menswear chic works for all walks of life. From the classic fashion girl to the corporate chick, women of all stripes are adopting androgynous style this autumn.
In particular, the skinny tie has become a popular statement accessory which has dominated the season’s catwalks. Here’s how to sport the skinny tie this fall, and officially draw your sartorial cues from the boys.
For a day off, look no further than the Michael Kors runway. Turn to a bright lime green coat and a matching cable knit sweater, and accessorize your ensemble with a printed, patterned tie blouse. The look of brilliant green and blue shades keeps your overall look youthful and fresh, while a dainty floral pattern on the tie helps to seal the deal. Add a tweed skirt and black leather penny loafers to bring a hint of preppy style to your ensemble.
At work, take notes from the Ralph Lauren catwalk and sharpen your business style with a tweed tie and crisp white blouse. Accessorize your ensemble with a coordinating waistcoat, brown suede skirt, dark tights and a fringed patchwork shawl.
If you’re aiming to stun on Friday night, look to the Dries Van Noten runway and slip into a gold and brown diagonal striped tie. Add an off-white pinstriped blouse, leopard print bomber jacket and polka dot burgundy trousers. Meanwhile, snakeskin print ankle booties bring a mix of patterns and textures to your overall outfit.
