Fashion is such an arbitrary word. Don’t get us wrong, we adore fashion. I mean you’d have to if starting a company in the fashion industry! It’s distinctive and often constant as it relates to how a person dresses. Fashion is also the prevalent styles induced by the newest creations of textile designers. Thank god for fashion designers!
So, what is a fashion trend and what is a fashion staple? Well according to a handy-dandy Google search – a fashion trend is really what is cool or popular at that moment, while a fashion staple is something you need to have in your closet, like a little black dress, which a necktie would pair nicely!
Our intention is not to try and convince anyone a necktie is or isn’t a staple...yet, it kinda is. 😊
Let us tell you why.
A necktie is SO easy to wear and it packs so much impact in such little fabric, elevating any outfit you pair it with. Fashion staples are items of clothing that are highly versatile, therefore enabling a person to create a multitude of ‘looks’ by simply mixing and matching. Well, one could argue that there are few clothing items that are as versatile and garment transforming as the women’s necktie. Ponder this, if a plain white blouse is considered a staple piece, we believe in turn, the necktie should at least be on that list as a complementary piece. And, we probably don’t have to state it, but the necktie is a staple piece of a man’s closet.
Check out fashion bloggers or celebrities on Instagram (we tagged a few below), they make it look too easy. While the tie-neck blouse or pussy bow blouse are on trend, with every right we might add. We own a couple, as well as the neck scarves, but why not add a necktie to your collection, and make it a necktie representative of a kick-ass gal! We think it just may have the superpower of bringing you a little extra motivation when tied around your neck!
While we are no Joan Rivers, we do have an inkling women’s neckties are more than just a fashion trend, they are becoming a representation of women empowerment…again! And women’s empowerment will never go out of style!
