The 70s Men’s Fashion Week is fast approaching and I can tell you that there are few fashions more classic than the crew neck t-shirt. I can’t say that it is an easy look to pull off, but it does have the ability to instantly add a stylish touch to almost any outfit. The best thing about it is that you can pull it off with so many different outfits and it still works for the workday too! This article will be looking at how you can incorporate this style into your wardrobe.

So what do we need to consider when trying to make this look work for us? Firstly we must try to emulate the look as much as possible so that we get as many options as we can for the shirt. Here are a few tips that should help you get the most out of this essential item of men’s clothing.

The Essential Tips To Consider

Firstly it is important to ensure that you wear a solid top over the shirt. It doesn’t have to be a fancy design or pattern but something that works well. A solid-colored shirt is probably the easiest option and will ensure that the tie knot doesn’t show through. If you are wearing a tie then you can always wear a contrasting colored tie or a solid color on top. However, if you are wearing a simple shirt without any ties then a solid-colored shirt will work just as well.

Once you have worn your shirt how you want it to look then you need to consider how you are going to tie the tie. The simple method is to simply take one end of the necktie and slide it under the other end. This is known as the overhand knot. To make it look better, you can also drape the tie over your arms to add some interest to the look. Remember to keep the knots loose as you don’t want them hanging down too low.

Choose Wisely

There are now so many different types of neckties to choose from, such as those that come with studs or buttons. These can be great for casual wear and can pull the outfit together. Another popular option is the half-cuffed necktie knot which looks great when worn with denim or khaki. You can also get ones with buttonholes instead of studs for more of a dressy look.

As well as all these different types of neckties there are also different colors to choose from. For instance, you can get a lighter shade of color for a casual tie or a darker shade if you are looking for something to set you apart from the crowd. Some people even go as far as having a tie-dyed to match their shirt. This isn’t advisable as you run the risk of causing an allergic reaction from the dye. It may also look bad on you if you dye your hair at the same time as you are wearing your tie. The best thing to do if you are thinking about dyeing your tie is to have your hair done before you buy it.

Get The Right Fabric

When it comes to buying neckties another option is to use a silk flower or fabric tie. They can either be bought as a readymade gift or you can sew one yourself. These neckties are a great option if you are having some guests over for dinner but still want something to wear. Silk ties tend to look good with a shirt collar shirt and they also feel nice against the skin. They will look great with a plain tie if you just leave them in the wash and air dry.


A third option that has become popular recently is wearing your necktie with a suit or shirt. This is a great idea because it means that the tie will be showing off the tie while you are wearing the suit which gives the whole outfit some emphasis. It is also a cool way to look cool in the evening and still be comfortable because you can easily adjust the length of the tie when you need to.
