Another way to wear the Ann Taylor silk necktie shell, and I must say, I like this outfit much better. The necktie has been double knotted to shorten the length a bit, and tucked into skinny jeans. Add a cute blazer, some jewelry, a pair of heels, and a belt, and now it’s a glorious take on my favorite look, feminine menswear.
The necktie on this shell resembles a men’s tie, so naturally, I’m ecstatic about it, and like it left loose. I’m also a big fan of pairing tough textures (like the tweed of the jacket) with softer textures (like the silk of the shell). Mixing these two fabric textures really makes the outfit much more interesting and fun to look at.
Tip: Some of the most boring outfits I’ve ever put together have involved garments that are the same texture. A silk blouse worn with a silk skirt is boring! So is a soft cotton top with a soft cotton bottom. Mixing fabric textures is a great way to get an interesting and chic outfit. In this outfit, I have tweed, silk, suede, shine (patent leather) and denim, but it all works together to make the outfit fun to look at.
