The real question is “Why wouldn’t you wear a tie?” With business fashion being a trend that is hitting the runway, you don’t even need a reason to wear a tie; even women style it with their everyday outfits. Heck! Even our furry friends are dressed up in ties by their beloved fashion-forward hoomans. That being said, let’s dive deep into the many ways ties have evolved and why you should start wearing one.

In the era of corporate giants, ties are often looked upon as a noose around your neck that ties you to a capitalist system and doesn’t really serve much of a purpose. But if we were to get into a little bit of history, you’d find that this piece of clothing article was more than just a simple cloth hanging by your neck.

The earliest evidence of a tie is from the terracotta sculptures found in China (200- 300 BCE); they were worn to protect their Adam’s apple which was seen as a source of strength. However, Louis XIII is credited to have brought the item into the world of fashion through the cravats; these were meant to hold their jackets together, and later the French noblemen started wearing them around as a fashion accessory. We can’t expect anything less from the French when it
comes to fashion, can we?

With the rise of white-collar jobs and clerical works, the tie began to be associated with the workforce and it was much later that it hit the fashion world once again. Even then, the ties have always possessed certain qualities from decades back, to this day. We’ll get a peek into some of these aspects.



The Smarty Pants

What is your first impression when you see someone who is wearing a tie? I bet words such as smart, confident, professional are some of the words that popped in your head. Well, this is exactly why you should wear a tie. As stereotypical as it may seem, it is true; a tie can make you look from 0 to 10 in just one knot. Whether you are actually smart or not doesn’t matter, a tie WILL make you look smart. Need proof? Look at Zuckerberg who wears only a plain grey Tee and Donald Trump who has made the red tie his signature style; now which one of these two is actually smart and which one appears smart? There, you have cleared your own doubt.

Chutzpah

A tie always goes the extra mile into boosting your confidence. Walk into a room and your confidence will grab the attention of everyone with just a tie. This right here is an addition to making you look smart; When you pull that knot up your neck, you are a different version of yourself with a heightened sense of self-awareness and confidence. One can’t deny that a confident you is a smart you.

Be the ‘Pro’ in Professional

Whether you are interviewing or being interviewed, a tie makes you look like a professional who knows what they are doing. There are certain attributes associated with wearing a tie and your interviewer would already assume that you possess certain qualities and abilities because of this; you don’t even have to try! You could be that person at your office who makes it difficult for the rest of your colleagues by putting in a little bit of effort into how you carry yourself and maybe even push their buttons and say something like “Join me up here, why don’t you?” Nothing says you are a sharp dresser and an excellent worker than an awesome tie.




Bow Down

Let’s not forget the ability of a tie to command respect. Whether or not you have a job or possess any respectable qualities for that matter is not a concern; as long as you wear a tie people will respect you.

For that Compact Wardrobe

In need of a minimalistic yet dynamic wardrobe? Then a tie is the way to go. A designer tie or a premium silk tie goes a long way when it comes to enhancing your style in a simple manner. This small piece of cloth would barely take up any space in your wardrobe but will definitely help you take up your space in society as your own person with a sense of style and confidence.



Attract the Crowd

To save the best for the last, the most important reason why you should wear a tie is that it looks good! Anyone who wears a tie instantly seems attractive and good-looking. Sometimes a plain suit can look boring but adding a tie to it adds more pizzazz and takes your outfit to a whole new level. A patterned tie with a plain suit has the ability to bring out the minimalism with a tinge of embellishing class. If you want all eyes on you, then a tie can achieve just that.




With ties evolving from a utility item to a fashion article that brings out the James Bond-Businessman in you, it is pretty clear that a tie is almost like a polyjuice potion for us mere mortals. So, if you are looking to impress, but in an effortless way, then it’s time you ‘tie the knot’.
